Fake 2008 Sonata???

Last Updated:

The Sonata is due for some changes. New front and back, with maybe a new interior.

I know this picture looks like a fake. But carmakers often use these
fake looking” press photos that are actually reeal..
(remember official shots of the Jeep Compass and Patriot?)

I can’t really tell.
Real, or just a current model with a Santa Fe front end?

  1. I went to the HyundaiExchange.com( usually have up to date spy shots, news) and I see nothing there. I did have a PM there saying there may be a tweaking of the car’s interior and exterior, but for Now, this is a fake.

  2. This fake looks better than the real thing. Though it kind of reminds me of the 1998-2002 Honda Accord.

  3. Someone obviously photoshopped the front end from the Sante Fe and put it on the front end of the Sonata in this pic….

    This is totally a fake.

  4. That is a pretty bad fake, to be quite honest.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Sonata got the new Hyundai corporate front-end, though. It’s already on the Elantra and Santa Fe.

  5. Did anyone notice how the car is in a slight turn with the front wheels turned a little but it seems the driver is holding the steering wheel straight with his hands at 10 and 2?

  6. This image is indeed a fake. I’m 100% sure, because I’m the one who made it.

    Some guy on another forum said the new Sonata would probably get a front which resembled the Santa Fe’s. Therefore I made an impression of what it might look like.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing my work with your audience and thanks for all the comments.
