The crowded market of mid-sized sedans may be changing a little as many drivers migrate to crossovers as years go by, but that doesn’t mean the Hyundai Sonata has it easy. No, the Sonata earns its place and recognition by being a sedan with lots of high-tech features for its price, and two feisty engine options as well.
Another attractor for the Sonata is its unique design, made to draw in newcomers and compete with sedans from other Asian automakers that are also making their sedans look sportier. While not exactly flashy, the Sonata has an exterior that makes it look like the strong, silent type in a crowd of other mid-size sedans. Its lines are bold and curved, but they make sharp intersections for an overall look of dignified individuality. The chart below highlights the vehicle’s available features and other important specifications.
|1.6L 4-Cylinder Turbo or 2.5L 4-Cylinder Turbo Engine||Bose® Premium Audio System||Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist|

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata is built to make the most of its space. There are more available interior features and other safety features besides those mentioned above than can be listed on one page, but the Sonata is far from lacking in engine power because of it. The second engine option makes the Sonata one of the most powerful mid-size sedans outside the luxury mid-size sedan class.
