Hyundai Continues Discontinuations?

Hyundai Motor Group is speculated to retire the Sonata midsize sedan, closing more than a three-decade run in the U.S., according to multiple sources.

“It’s likely the sedan will get one more refresh in 2025 but will not live past 2027 or 2028,” said Jesse Toprak, chief economist for Autonomy. Kia’s midsize sedan, the K5, formerly the Optima, shares the same platform with the Sonata and will likely be phased out as well.

Hyundai maintains such reports are speculation.
