Hyundai will introduce the first revamped version of its flagship model and top-selling Sonata sedan in four years in 2014, the South Korean manufacturer announced.

The latest version of the Sonata was launched in September 2009 in South Korea and early 2010 in the United States.

As the world's fifth-largest auto group along with its affiliate Kia Motors, Hyundai's only newly planned model this year is the 2013 Santa Fe.

Hyundai had a record sales year in 2011. In addition to the Hyundai Elantra selling more than one million units worldwide, the carmaker had its largest-selling year in the United States with a sales increase of 20 percent over 2010 totals.

The Alabama-built Sonata and North American Car of the Year finalist Elantra both set full-year records with sales of 225,961 units (up 15 percent) and 186,361 (up 41 percent), respectively.
