The breathtaking exterior design of the 2013 Sonata is the result of a design philosophy called Fluidic Sculpture. It considers the interplay of natural and fluid elements and how they interact with rigid surfaces of the vehicle’s body. The result is an aerodynamic design that also creates the impression of constant, graceful motion. The most visible result of this is the signature chrome accent – extending from the headlamps along the hood edge back to the side window line. The overall visual impression is that of a long, low, light sedan that blends sportiness with elegance in equal measures.
