The Spy Guy’s sources have supplied him with intel and images regarding Hyundai’s mid-size sedan that will undergo some revisions for the 2018 model year. Clearly in evidence is an all-new front end with a much larger hexagonal grille (much like the current compact Elantra) and side air-intake/foglight pods. The revised interior will get a larger touchscreen plus revised seats, steering wheel and floor console. There are no planned changes to the three available four-cylinder powerplants, but an eight-speed automatic transmission will take over shifting duties from the current six-speed.
