The basis of the new 2016 Hyundai Sonata exterior design is actually the old Hyundai Sonata. So the previous vehicle was used as a basis and enhanced and remodeled for the newest version. What the designers have seen as a flaw before now they were able to fix with this new car design. They managed to incorporate many features that the previous model lacked and endowed this version with it.

The overall design of the exterior was aimed to be more aerodynamic. This feature does not just enable the car to look beautiful but also gives better handling and maneuvering capabilities. as you see the car does not sport a new design in sheer exuberance but also out of the need to make a better car. The vehicle also looks more elegant than before and has a serious look that is far appealing than the previous Sonata models.

The inside of the new 2016 Hyundai Sonata now has more room than before. The vehicle’s inside is roomier and comfortable at the same time. There is more space both for the driver and passenger at the front and also some extra headspace at the back. Add some more fancy and luxurious materials added to the vehicle and you get a car that is beautiful to look at and drive in as well.

The dashboard has been restyled as well and is centered so as to allow the centrally matted 5 inch (or in some trims 8 inch) touch screen system be the middle part of the car, allowing it to be accessible and reachable at the same time. The previous design was centered around a more modern look, but now the inside is a bit sophisticated but also a bit aggressive. This boasts well for this car and is the benchmark and the pivotal point of the car.
