Hyundai Sonata Receives Prestigious 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award

Recently, Hyundai proudly announce that it had been received a 2017 GOOD DESIGN® Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. This award, which was given to the refashioned midsize 2018 Hyundai Sonata, is a major design honor -- and this is the second time that the Sonata has earned it!

The Sonata has long been the star of the Hyundai lineup, and the 2018 model features a refreshing design that showcases a more aggressive, sportier stance. The reshaped hood leads to a cascading grille, while the vehicle's sharp lines evoke to a long, sleek overall appearance. The Hyundai design team also changed up the Sonata's interior, equipping the center stack with larger features and user-friendly rocker controls.

In a press release, Chris Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design Center, declared, "Hyundai is honored to be recognized by GOOD DESIGN for this daring refresh of one of its most popular vehicles. Sonata is winning this award for the second time, demonstrating an entirely new look and feel but a core consistency of quality in the ever-changing automotive landscape."

The GOOD DESIGN Awards, which were established in Chicago in 1950, are meant to honor the achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and global manufacturers for their pursuit of design excellence.
