The Hyundai Sonata has got a small facelift in Malaysia which basically adds some cosmetic tweaks and some mild additions to the interior. At first you would probably find it hard to spot the changes but the biggest change that one can make out from the pictures is that the Sonata now has a new front grille and LED fog lamps. The rear also has a sprinkling of LEDs to make it look more premium. The top of the line 2.4 litre model now has HID headlamps.

There are also some new wheels with the 2.4L version getting the massive 18 inch alloys which bumps up the looks of the car by a lot we must say! Just like the exterior the interior has some minimal changes with a new look centre console, gear knob and even more of the Hyundai special blue LED backlight which makes the cabin look great. In Malaysia where there are two engine options, the 2.0L has a new Nu 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine.

For our market these changes and the 2.0 engine will surely make the Sonata a better value product as is the case with some of its rivals, the Sonata needs a diesel but that will not happen any time soon so for the moment let us hope we get this facelifted Sonata.
