Building a mid-size sedan means setting your model up for some major competition. People may not drive mid-size sedans as often as they used to, but the models that are still around are running strong. A contender that occasionally slips under the radar for some is the Hyundai Sonata.
Although the Sonata name has been around for 35 years now, the 2021 Sonata is part of a new generation for the sedan that began in 2020. Its newness is obvious inside and out. With a prominent contrast line tracing from the corner of each headlight up to the front of each front window and a stylized hexagonal grille, the exterior is fresh and well laid out. On the inside, it becomes clear that the ace up the model’s sleeves is based on technology. As a Sonata is a piece of music that is played without singing, the various technological instruments constitute a veritable orchestra of comfort, entertainment, safety, and much more. Review some of these available feature highlights and specifications in the table below.

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata is an ideal mid-size sedan for those who have a deep hunger for technology.

The turbocharged engine comes on every trim level after the preferred, making it rather affordable as a turbo.
