Hyundai's new Sonata could get all-wheel drive
Hyundai is "currently reviewing" the need for an all-wheel-drive Sonata in the US.

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata will arrive in US showrooms later this year, with bold styling and lots of new driver-assistance technologies. The rakish sedan rides on a brand-new platform, and Hyundai says the Sonata could eventually be offered with all-wheel drive because of that -- a first for the model.

When specifically asked about the possibility of an all-wheel-drive Sonata during a press briefing in Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday, Jae Young Kim, the director of Hyundai's product division, said, "Yes ... we are currently reviewing the need for all-wheel drive in [the US] market."

The 2020 Sonata's platform -- called N3 internally -- will go on to underpin a number of other vehicles, including crossovers and SUVs. Because of that, the N3 chassis has been designed to support all-wheel drive from the get-go.
