As if smarting from criticism that it was too bland, Hyundai over-styled the Sonata facelift, with a protruding ovoid grille, new headlight, bonnet and bumper design, and revised rear treatment.

Hyundai also addressed noise and vibration concerns, but buyers of the 2.0L automatic still had to work the engine hard.

The cabin also saw a reshuffling of some switches and trim.

Keen driveaway pricing kept buyers interested in the well-equipped base model GLE.
