Hyundai plans to follow up its successful Sonata midsize sedan with a completely new model for 2014, Hyundai CEO Kim Choong-ho told Reuters.
Redesigned for 2011, the Hyundai Sonata has helped tremendously with the South Korean automaker’s fast-paced growth here. Last year, Hyundai sold 225,961 Sonatas, representing 35% of all Hyundai sales in the U.S.
There’s no mention of what to expect from the new Sonata. Choong-ho told Reuters that the only major vehicle launch from Hyundai in 2012 is the new Santa Fe, which will debut next month at the 2012 New York auto show. A redesigned Genesis luxury sedan should arrive late in 2013, according to Reuters.
