The seventh-generation [2015 Hyundai Sonata](http://www.carsoup.com/research-vehicles/Hyundai/Sonata/ "2015 Hyundai Sonata") offers a more refined look through a new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration and harshness and advanced safety and convenience features.

A larger, more refined grille with a wide air intake defines the face of the 2015 Sonata. Simple, harmonious lines adorn the exterior while hinting at the improved dynamic performance and human-machine connection Sonata provides.

Taut, horizontal rocker panels reflect the chassis’ increased stability and surefootedness while the signature Sonata beltline is now stretched tight to accentuate the sedan’s strength. Controls are grouped logically and placed in the most convenient position for the driver. Intuitive buttons and controls are placed on the center stack, which is angled toward the driver to make the controls easier to reach.
