Default Spied: The 2018 Hyundai Sonata

The refreshed 2018 Hyundai Sonata has been caught on camera in the Mojave desert in the US, apparently on a testing run for the very first time.

Sporting a new front grille with elongated horizontal slats and redesigned headlights with vertical LED lights lower down, the 2018 Sonata will reportedly be offered in a sporty trim as well which has a black mesh grille with a different lower fascia, differently-styled blackened alloys and trapezoidal exhaust pipes to distinguish itself from the regular version.

Both versions, on the testing run together, apparently have redesigned taillights. Any other changes to the rear section is not clearly distinguishable.

It is being assumed that the 2018 Sonata's sporty trim will be equipped with the Hyundai i30 N's turbocharged 2.0L heart, which pumps out more than 260HP of sheer power, while the regular Sonata will have a 2.0L, 245HP version under it's hood.
