Hyundai is showing off a prototype for the likely replacement of its Sonata midsize sedan.

Called the Avatar, the car is more bold and luxurious than typical midsize sedans, the Korean automaker said.The Sonata's replacement will be out in the fall. But Hyundai isn't saying whether the new vehicle will be called Avatar or Sonata or have some other name.

The Sonata sold 22,000 last year and was Hyundai's third best selling vehicle.
