Hyundai Sonata (DN8) 2020

Eighth generation (DN8; 2019–present): The 2020 Sonata was previewed in early March 2019, and was officially launched on March 21 in South Korea. It also debuted during the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show for the Chinese market, and made its North American debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show on April 17 for the North American market.

The eighth generation Sonata uses a new third-generation architecture and showcases Hyundai's latest "Sensuous Sportiness" design language which was first previewed by the Le Fil Rouge concept. The styling is less conservative and more pronounced compared to the previous generation. It now sports a fastback-like shape, and features driving lights which run all the way up the hood and full-width, C-shaped taillamps. The fastback style recalls the sedans of the mid 1930s and the 1940s, a trend that made those sedans most famous for, while the C-shaped taillamps, which are also found in the 2018 Honda Accord and the Honda Civic have been compared to and paid homage to the car tailfins of the 1950s. The interior has been redesigned significantly as well, with an optional 12.3 inch digital cluster and 10.3 inch center screen.

It will be available with two engines at launch, both of which are I4s: a turbocharged 1.6L unit with 180 horsepower and a naturally aspirated dual port injection 2.5L unit with 198 horsepower. The latter engine replaces the previous 185-hp 2.4L unit. A performance-oriented "N-Line" model will also be available in the near future.

The new Sonata features a high level of standard equipment. Standard features on every 2020 Sonata include Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Automatic High Beam Assist, Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Lane Follow Assist, Driver Attention Warning, LED headlamps, LED daytime running lamps (DRL's), LED tail lamps, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. New features available for the first time on Sonata include an NFC Digital Key, Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) (a feature previously only available on high-priced luxury vehicles), Around View Monitor (AVM), a 10.25-inch (10.25") navigation infotainment system, a 12.3-inch (12.3") LCD instrument cluster display, a Bose premium audio system, next-generation Hyundai Blue Link technology, and a color heads-up display. Trim levels for the Sonata are SE, SEL, SEL Plus, and Limited. 

The safety system, which comprises three radar systems, five cameras and thirteen ultrasonic sensors, allows for driver-assist features such as standard adaptive cruise control, forward-collision braking, and lane-following assist.

After launch it was best-selling car in South Korea.

The Hyundai Sonata (Korean) is a mid-size car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1985. The first generation Sonata, which was introduced in 1985, was a facelifted Hyundai Stellar with an engine upgrade, and was withdrawn from the market in two years due to poor customer reactions. While the original was only sold in South Korea, with limited exports to Canada and New Zealand, the second generation of 1988 was widely exported.
