Hyundai reinvents Sonata with new N Line sedan

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.

Mick is a car fanatic, with petrol pumping through his veins. With a deep love for cars, and what makes them tick, Mick likes things that go fast, very fast. But he also appreciates a Sunday cruise in the Rolls...... who are we kidding, he'd drive the wheels off that too.


    • We’re expecting it to arrive in dealerships before the end of financial year (based on what Hyundai have said in the past). We’re road testing one in July, so keep an eye out for that too.
