2020 Hyundai Sonata Begins Production at Alabama Plant
Hyundai has shown its all-new 2020 Sonata at the 49th Miami International Auto Show, marking the Southern Region debut of its longest-standing and most successful model.
The eight-generation model is also set to begin its production at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) while sales will commence later this month.
The 2020 Sonata is the first sedan designed with Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design language. It is a fully transformed vehicle showcasing a sporty four-door-coupe look and represents the automaker’s new focus on creating emotional value using proportion, styling, and technology.
It is also the first model to be based on Hyundai’s new, innovative vehicle platform, which delivers increased strength and reduced weight to enable improvements in design, safety, efficiency and driving performance.
Meanwhile, comfort, convenience and active safety are further improved through a plethora of advanced technologies.
“The Sonata holds a special significance for our company as one of the longest-standing and most successful models in the global market,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, product, corporate and digital planning for Hyundai Motor America.
“The 2020 Sonata is a fully transformed vehicle packed with advanced personalization technology, a new platform and an array of safety technologies. We are confident that our customers will be pleasantly surprised by this innovative new model.”
