If you’re in the market for a new sedan, one of the best options currently available is the 2021 Hyundai Sonata. There are a lot of features packed into this vehicle — perhaps too many to cover in one article. To help you decide if the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is right for you, we’re exploring the top five features of the Sonata and what helps separate it from its competition.

Perhaps the best feature of the Sonata is the one most car buyers are concerned with: its performance. The Hyundai Sonata packs a lot of power and performance into a small sedan frame. Inside the 2021 Sonata, you’ll find a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 191 horsepower in the base trim. If you want, you can upgrade to the N Line trim and get a 2.5-liter turbo engine that produces a whopping 290 horsepower. This is more than enough power for the average driver, regardless of which trim you get.
In addition to its powerful engine, the 2021 Sonata is great on gas. The base model has an efficiency of 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, for a combined efficiency rating of 32 mpg. If you upgrade to one of the hybrid trims, you can raise this all the way up to a combined 47 mpg, making the 2021 Sonata one of the most efficient sedans currently on the market. Between the engine and the fuel efficiency, the performance of the Sonata makes for a key feature.
Easy Entertainment System
Most modern vehicles come with some form of an entertainment system, which usually takes the form of a touch-screen unit in the center of the dashboard that allows you to control your different media sources. However, some of these infotainment systems are a little harder to use than others. When you’re driving around, you don’t want to be fumbling around with the screen trying to get your favorite music on.
Luckily, the 2021 Sonata comes with an easy-to-use infotainment system. This includes an 8-inch color touch screen on the base model, but you can easily upgrade to a 10.25-inch model. Regardless of the size of the screen, though, you’ll have an easy time connecting your mobile device to this infotainment system and enjoy listening to your favorite music and podcasts through the high-quality audio system.
Of course, the Sonata’s technology doesn’t stop with the infotainment system. A third great feature of the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is all the other available technology upgrades. One example is the Hyundai Smart Key. With the Smart Key, you can get out of your car and back your car into a parking space with just the push of a button. By allowing the vehicle to essentially park itself, you can fit into tighter spaces and avoid hitting curbs. When you’re ready to leave, you can push the button again to have the Sonata pull back out.
Another great available feature comes in the hybrid versions of the Sonata. In the hybrid trims, you can get solar panels directly on the roof. With these solar panels, the Sonata Hybrid Limited can reach up to 52 mpg. The solar panels allow you to drive further each day, limiting the number of times you stop at a gas station and how much you spend at the pump.
If you’re looking for a safe sedan, look no further than the 2021 Hyundai Sonata. Regardless of which trim you get, there are plenty of safety features packed inside. For example, on the base model, you’ll get a forward collision-avoidance assist system, driver attention warning, and a lane follow assist system. Upgrading one level in the trim adds in a blind-spot collision-avoidance assist system along with a rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist system. On the more premium trims, you’ll find features like the blind-spot view monitor.
In addition to these advanced safety technology features, the 2021 Sonata comes with the other safety features you’d expect. For example, you’ll find plenty of airbags throughout the vehicle to help keep you and your passengers safe. Safety is an important feature for any buyer, and if you want one of the safest cars on the road, seriously consider going with the 2021 Sonata.
Available Trim Options
Finally, a great feature of the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is how many trim levels are available. By offering so many different trim options, Hyundai gives you more control over how much you spend and the features that you get. With some vehicles, trim options are limited, meaning you need to upgrade to the most premium trim just to get some of the better features. This isn’t the case with the 2021 Sonata.
There are eight trim levels available in the Sonata: the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, N Line, Limited, Hybrid Blue, Hybrid SEL, and Hybrid Limited. When shopping for a new Sonata, you should look at a list of features for each trim to see what each one comes with. You can then decide which features you want the most and get the appropriate trim level.
