Beijing Hyundai Motor Company (BHMC) today unveiled its all- new Sonata and Hyundai ix25 at Auto Shanghai 2019. The new models spearhead the company’s ‘New Era’ theme for the event, which highlights new, future technologies; all-new models; plus Hyundai Motor’s new design philosophy – Sensuous Sportiness.

The all-new Hyundai Sonata

The all-new Sonata features the latest safety, connectivity and convenience technologies. The global ‘signature vehicle’ for Hyundai, the latest generation Sonata is a stylish, thrilling and beautiful coupe-style sedan, rather than a conventional four-door model. It expresses Hyundai Motor’s Sensuous Sportiness design language through elegance and flowing lines, using light as the defining styling feature inside and out.

The China-only Hyundai ix25 crossover

The all-new ix25 compact SUV also premieres in new ‘sporty and muscular’ form. Perfectly positioned for the Chinese market, the new model is clearly inspired by the same design language as the all-new Sonata, but it is interpreted differently. From its strong, shoulder line wheel arches and SUV-like ground clearance, to its unmistakably distinctive lighting design, it is a stylish model that will stand out from the crowd.

China leads the world for uptake of new forms of vehicle propulsion, a fact capitalized on by BHMC in the form of the new Encino EV and new Elantra PHEV. These vehicles form a crucial piece of Hyundai Motor’s future-focused strategy for clean mobility in China and around the world.

This vision for future mobility is communicated clearly through BHMC’s ‘New Era’ theme on its booth. Among the human centric technologies on display are Personal Mobility Device E-bike and E-scooter exhibits that sit alongside a suite of other future technology and vehicle exhibits, including: a Sonata design studio – a first in China; Connected Car 3.0 and Fingerprint Authentication Entry tech experience booth – another first in China; a digital key experience booth; the Veloster N Performance Car; and the NEXO air purification.

Whether these two Hyundai models will make it to Philippine shores is still up in the air, but given the proximity of the two countries and success of Hyundai Philippines (HARI) in the local market, the possibility looks rosy.
