THE 2021 Hyundai Sonata has arrived as a chic, coupe-like four-door sedan, featuring futuristic technology, advanced safety and a new 213kW 2.5-litre turbocharged engine. The new model is to be offered in a single, sporty and feature-packed N Line specification.
Bringing Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design concept to life, and reimagining the classic sedan silhouette as a low and wide four-door, the 2021 Sonata features the aggressively sculpted curves and crisp lines of a coupe.
Sonata N Line is the first Hyundai model in Australia to feature the all-new Smartstream power plant, teamed with a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An N Line cascading grille spans the front of the new model, to create a bold first impression.
The grille extends between distinctive LED headlights that feature an eye-catching new lighting architecture, while an exclusive N Line bumper design completes an aggressively sporty visage.
Crisp chrome trims give definition to the daylight opening, before flowing along the bonnet edge to the front, where they make a sharp turn to underline the headlights, complete with integrated LED daytime running lights.
Striking 19-inch alloy wheels convey a confident road presence. At the rear, LED taillights are tied by an LED strip to create a sense of width, as well as a striking night-time impression, with twin tailpipes integrated into each side of a diffuser-style lower rear.
Available in White Cream, Hampton Grey, Flame Red and Midnight Black, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata N-Line sports an interior headlined by a first-in-class 12.3-inch high-resolution TFT-LCD digital instrument cluster.
The futuristic cluster is complemented by a 10.25-inch HD infotainment interface and a head-up display. A minimalistic centre console design featuring shift-by-wire gear selection buttons brings convenience as well as space.
Black Nappa leather and suede upholstery, along with exclusive N Line badging complete a classy cabin ambience. Comforts include heated and ventilated, power-adjustable front seats, heated outboard rear seats, and dual-zone climate control air conditioning.
A panoramic glass sunroof adds to the ambiance, while a surround view monitor, wireless smartphone charging, and Bose premium audio are among the convenience and luxury technologies.
A standard suite of SmartSense technologies includes forward collision-avoidance assist with junction turning assist, driver attention warning and blind-spot collision avoidance-assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist and lane following assist.
Smart cruise control with stop and go support rounds out the package. An N Line sports body kit, LED headlights, DRLs and taillights, and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Continental tyres ensure a stylish look for the 2021 Hyundai Sonata as well.
Pricing is set to start from $50,990 (plus on-roads), with the new model to launch locally mid-year. You can register your interest on the Hyundai Australia website.
