Recently, Hyundai representatives posted a video clip on the Web, which presents a new third-generation platform. The novelty will be applied on the Sonata sedan.
From now on, all models will have shorter overhangs, the roof and hood lines will be understated, which will affect the easier landing for passengers. A low center of gravity and a 5% reduction in weight will affect the car’s handling.
The main feature of the novelty is the front power structure. In the event of an accident, the force of impact energy will be distributed in three directions. In the event of a frontal impact, the car will be shifted, but not turned over.
The new platform received improved cooling of the engine compartment, and the new bottom will increase the aerodynamic effect.
