The 2011 Hyundai Sonata

New Hyundai Sonata coming in 2014, new Genesis in 2013

While speaking at an industry meeting in Seoul South Korea, Hyundai Chief Executive Officer Kim Choon-Ho told Reuters that the Korean automaker plans to launch a new version of the popular Hyundai Sonata in 2014 while the Genesis sedan would get a refresh of its own late in 2013.

Hyundai CEO Kim Choon-Ho didn’t provide any details on the new models, including whether we would first see the new Hyundai Sonata in 2014 or if it would be on the roads in 2014. The arrival of the new Genesis sedan in late 2013 could be a look at a 2014 model year vehicle, as making the world wait for a 2015 model that far in advance wouldn’t be likely for a refresh.

The Hyundai Sonata was the Korean automaker’s top selling car in the United States last year, acting as one of the key catalysts in Hyundai’s record year and market share increase in the United States while also being a major part of their continued growth. However, the Sonata ranked third in sales for the company in their home market of South Korea.
