Last month at the LA Auto Show, Hyundai America CEO John Krafcik told us that the 2010 Hyundai Sonata will debut next November in LA with the hybrid version coming the following year. Weight reduction will be a major part of the new Sonata program. A speculative rendering has turned up of what the new Sonata might look like. Hyundai hasn't given us any hints about the car's design, but this drawing looks plausible. It draws heavily on the new Genesis sedan with a lower sleeker roof-line that looks much like the Volkswagen CC. The hybrid version will use Hyundai's new BlueHybrid powertrain with a 2.4L four cylinder and a lithium polymer battery.
