Hyundai Takes Home 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award for 2018 Sonata

Late last month, Hyundai was proud to announce that it had been honored with 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 honors the redesigned midsize 2018 Hyundai Sonata, is a significant achievement in the world of design -- and marks the second time that the Sonata has earned a GOOD DESIGN Award.

The Sonata has been the standout model in the Hyundai roster for years, and the 2018 model features a refreshing new design that offers a sportier, more aggressive look. The hood has been reshaped and leads to a cascading grille, while precise lines lead to a long, sleek overall appearance. Refusing to stop at exterior changes alone, the design team also overhauled the interior, with the center stack equipped with larger features that draw your eye to the user-friendly rocker controls.

In a press release, Chris Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design Center, was quoted as saying, "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 were founded in Chicago in 1950 and honor the achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and global manufacturers for their pursuit of design excellence.
