The New Hyundai Sonata Looks Better as a Coupe

Too bad it'll likely never happen.

Compare the outgoing to the newly revealed 2015 Hyundai Sonata and you you'll probably agree the latter looks kind of bland. It’s not a bad-looking mid-size sedan by any means, but its predecessor was without question the boldest departure the South Korean automaker had ever made. Hyundai clearly opted for a safer and less dramatic redesign this time around, both inside and out, and perhaps it went a bit too conservative.

Rendering artist Theophilus Chin may just be on to something that could make the new Sonata a bit more attractive: a coupe version. A simple removal of the rear doors has, in our humble opinion, given the new Sonata the adrenaline dosage it needs. Clearly the chances of a Sonata Coupe are practically zero, but it’s still something we’d like to see happen.
