2021 Hyundai Sonata Review

Overview
What do you get when you combine inspired design with cutting-edge technology and top-notch performance? You get the Hyundai Sonata the perfect blend of everything you’re looking for in a mid-size sedan. Choose from five trims ranging from the capable SE to the sporty N Line to the luxurious Limited. Just look at the Sonata’s low profile and wide stance. Hyundai calls it Sensuous Sportiness and it’s more than skin-deep—this sleek four-door-coupe has a 0.27 coefficient of drag. The revolution continues inside with Hyundai’s Beautifully Smart design. Remarkable automotive design is nothing these days without remarkable technology. Apple CarPlay Android Auto and Bluetooth make life easier and Hyundai SmartSense advanced driver assistance systems make life safer. And with three Hyundai SmartStream engines to choose from an eight-speed automatic transmission and an advanced road-hugging suspension system you’ll enjoy every drive even if you’re just going to the grocery store. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Sonata that’s all yours. The Hyundai Sonata. Refreshingly complete.
Technology
Your Hyundai Sonata is loaded with technology. The infotainment system brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Bluetooth and available Navigation to a touchscreen display. Hyundai’s Digital Key lets you use your smartphone to unlock your doors start the engine and more. Forget to lock your doors? Want your Sonata to be nice and warm—or nice and cool—when you get in? No problem. Hyundai’s available Blue Link Connected Car System turns your smartphone or smartwatch into a remote control for your car. The Hyundai Sonata. More technology bang for your buck.
Safety
Every Hyundai Sonata comes with Hyundai SmartSense Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Want a network of radar ultrasonic sensors and cameras watching out for you when you drive? Forward Collision Avoidance Assist Lane Keep Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go are standard. How about help changing lanes or backing out of parking spaces? Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist are available. And available Remote Smart Parking Assist will park your Sonata for you—even when you’re not inside it. The Hyundai Sonata. More safety bang for your buck.
Performance
You’ll enjoy every drive in your Hyundai Sonata. The standard 2.5-liter inline-four develops 191 horsepower giving you plenty of power for freeway on-ramps. The available turbocharged 1.6-liter engine’s 195 pound-feet of torque starts at just fifteen-hundred RPM so you get maximum power when you need it most. Or go all out with the N Line’s 290-horse engine and eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. And with MacPherson struts up front and fully independent multi-link suspension in the rear your Sonata loves corners. The Hyundai Sonata. Be one with your car.
