    5 reasons to buy the 2021 Hyundai Sonata

    1. Impressive mileage

    The 2021 Hyundai Sonata is a stylish midsize car that begs to be shown off around the city and down the highway. It's sleek and cool, and thanks to its great fuel economy figures, you don't have to worry about wasting gas while making a statement. The base-model 2021 Sonata SE with the 2.5L four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined.

    2. Head-turning looks

    In 2020, the Sonata was redesigned inside and out to create a more appealing look from top to tail. With an athletic aesthetic, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is the perfect combination of sharp lines and curves on the outside. The materials inside the cabin are soft to the touch, with good looks that are sure to turn heads. If you feel that your car is an extension of yourself and you want to show off your good taste, the 2021 Sonata is an ideal choice.

    3. Comfort throughout

    The soft-touch materials inside the 2021 Hyundai Sonata aren't just for looks—they're comfortable, too. The vehicle seats five with ample space. Passenger volume is 104.4 cu-ft, with 46.1 inches of legroom in the front and 34.8 inches in the back—plenty for most adults, as well as children. Speaking of children, the 2021 Sonata has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the middle seat, so you can fit up to three child seats. On top of that, there's plenty of room for shopping bags or sports gear, with a 16 cu-ft trunk at your disposal.

    4. A personal connection

    As a modern driver, you probably want strong connectivity within your car, especially if you spend a lot of time on the road. The 2021 Sonata features Bluelink®, Hyundai's telematics system, that keeps you connected with the vehicle via the app, unlocking features like remote start, remote lock, find my car, and SOS.

    The Sonata also offers Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity, which can be played through the available 12-speaker Bose® premium stereo.

    5. N Line trim

    Brand new for 2021 is the N Line trim, created entirely for drivers who want a boost to their hp. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata SE and SEL trims have the base 191-hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine, while SEL Plus and Limited trims have a 180-hp 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. If power is your preference, the N Line is the way to go, offering 290 hp through a 2.5L four-cylinder engine—an impressive level of grunt.
