2021 Hyundai Sonata N-Line: Leader in Styling and Handling

By  | 


Inside the Sonata N Line you will discover the 10.3-inch center touchscreen navigation system and color LCD 12.3 touchscreen digital instrument cluster with settings. The technology systems are complemented by attractive front bucket seats and rear bench, clothed in trendy Nappa Leather and Dinamica inserts.

Personally, I would like to see the seats expanded and the sides not so fitted.

Sonata has a party personality and superior design, and the massive grille openings and aero ducts express the N-Line accents. Seats and other interior material pieces are black with Phantom Black exterior.

Armrests and door panels are comfortable. The black infotainment center is easy to access for sending on a mission.

Sonata is powered by a smartstream 2.5-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine and GDI providing 290 horsepower with 5800 rpm and 311 lb-ft torque with 1650 rpm. The new N -8 -speed Wet Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters and drive mode select work together to provide 23-city mpg, 33-mpg highway for a combined 27 mpg. My week of driving netted me an average of 33-mpg combined.

The Sonata is not just a cute little sedan or “big boy toy,” but a prissy, sporty car that carries four adults comfortably including all their “stuff.”

Suspension and powertrain provide a grip on the curve and traction on the straightaway making for a wonderful, delightful drive.

Advanced safety technology is found throughout the Sonata. Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Avoidance Assist and Pedestrian Detection, LED Daytime Running Lights and Safe Exit Warning, Lane follow Assist and Lane Keep Assist, just to name a few.

Sonata rests comfortably on 19-inch alloy wheels with 245 R 19 tires. The Panoramic Sunroof brings the outside world inside as the outside world samples the inside. The rearview camera with Dynamic Guidelines help to guide your car backward while you enjoy the safe environment.

Communication and entertainment are not overlooked by Hyundai. Bose Audio with 12/speakers including 9-inch subwoofer AM/FM/HD Radio with USB and Auxiliary Jacks are the entertainment possibilities while Apple/CarPlay and Android Integrated Sirius XM Radio and Blue Link Connect Services (3-year complimentary Trial Enrollment) is your communication mantel.
