How the Hyundai Sonata Stands Out Among Midsize Sedans

How the Hyundai Sonata Stands Out Among Midsize Sedans

With all the buzz of SUV models taking over the automotive industry, it's still evident that some brands are pushing their sedan segments and holding strong. One of those automakers is Hyundai, which has some of the best sedan offerings on the market today, including the midsize Sonata.


The Hyundai Sonata has the power, design and looks, safety, and driver assistance features to compete with big-name rivals like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Kia K5, Subaru Legacy, and Nissan Altima.



The sleek Hyundai Sonata features one of the best exterior designs, distinguishing it from the competition. This is important because many vehicle models in this class look similar with very few distinctions.


The Hyundai Sonata features automatic high beams, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and remote keyless entry. Drivers can enjoy ambient interior lighting, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel for the best driving experience. The Sonata N Line trim comes with bolstered seats, a panoramic sunroof, and N Line styling.

Engine, Transmission & Performance

The Hyundai Sonata model offers different engine options. The 1.6-L turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine, with 180HP and 196 lb.Ft. paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission makes it a powertrain on the road.


However, the most powerful Sonata engine comes in the N Line trim. The N Line comes with a turbo 2.5-L 4-cylinder engine that offers 290 HP and 311 lb.Ft. The Sonata is also available in FWD and AWD options for different driving experiences and power options.

Technology & Driver Assistance

The Sonata features a large, wide, attractive touchscreen measuring 10.25 inches. Its voice commands work perfectly, and the steering wheel and touchscreen controls are easy to master.

In terms of connectivity, the Hyundai Sonata is fitted with a 12-speaker Bose stereo system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and access to the Hyundai Bluelink connected services that allow for remote start, locking and unlocking doors, and more via app.

Driver assistance features include the following:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane keeping assistance
  • Blind-spot intervention
  • Smart Parking assist
  • Automated emergency braking
  • Rear cross-traffic alert


Fuel Economy & MPG

The Hyundai Sonata has an EPA rating of 44 in the city and 51 on the highway for the hybris trim. The FWD nonhybrid trims are rated 25 MPG in the city and 36 on the highway. AWD options reduce the highway numbers to 34 MPG. The turbocharged 2.5.L Sonatas are less fuel economical, getting EPA estimates of 23 in the city and 32 on the highway.
