China gets two engine options. 

At the ongoing Guangzhou Auto Show 2014, Hyundai has showcased the next generation 2015 Sonata in China where the car is expected to make it to the showrooms sometime early next year. It’s based on an all-new platform, is slightly bigger, and boasts a better torsional rigidity than the outgoing car.

On the outside, the new Sonata boasts a very fresh design that enables it to stand neck to neck with its rivals. The LED treatment on the headlamps, the coupe-like roofline, and the striking rear stand out. The Chinese model shown here is reported to have received minor design updates, too, owing to the market preferences there.
