KEY FEATURES: 2.5L Smartstream GDI 4-cylinder engine mated with a 8-speed automatic transmission | Available 1.6L Smartstream Turbo GDI engine | 8-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire technology
2.5L Smartstream GDI 4-cylinder engine
The standard 2.5L Smartstream GDI 4-cylinder engine delivers 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, providing excellent mid-range power for easy drivability. It is mated to a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, with shift-by-wire technology, so you can effortlessly change gears at the press of a button.
1.6L Smartstream Turbo GDI engine
If you’re looking for sportier performance, choose the available Turbocharged 1.6L Smartstream 4-cylinder engine that delivers 180 horsepower and produces 195 lb-ft of torque at a low 1,500 rpm for enhanced acceleration and response.
8-speed automatic transmission
Both engine options are mated to a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire technology, so you can effortlessly change gears at the press of a button.
2.0L Smartstream engine
The Sonata Hybrid features a 2.0L Gasoline Direct Injection engine paired with a 38 kW electric motor to deliver efficient cruising at a combined horsepower of 192 hp. The 6-speed automatic transmission with our new Active Shift Control (ASC) technology is designed specifically for hybrid vehicles. ASC improves gear-shift efficiency to deliver improved driving dynamics and fuel economy.
By using a full-parallel hybrid drive system, the Sonata Hybrid can run on a gasoline internal combustion engine, an electric motor or both. This provides you with more optimized power and improved fuel economy by allowing the gasoline engine and electric motor to supply power simultaneously or independently.
How the hybrid system works: The powerful electric motor is used alone for starts and low-speed driving. In this pure electric (EV) mode, the Sonata Hybrid produces zero emissions. Once the vehicle picks up speed or climbs uphill, the 2.0L Smartstream engine automatically kicks in to work in tandem with the 38 kW electric motor. During mid- and high-speed steady driving, the Sonata Hybrid automatically switches between gasoline and electric propulsion modes, depending on driving conditions and the battery’s state of charge. During deceleration and downhill driving, the regenerative braking system helps recharge the batteries by capturing energy that would otherwise be wasted.
Our suite of available Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features includes a range of camera, radar and motion detection technologies to provide you with added peace of mind. The 2021 Sonata features some of the latest innovative safety technologies in the industry
The Sonata features an ultra-rigid vehicle chassis at its core, which we call the SUPERSTRUCTURE™. Built with our very own Advanced High-Strength Steel, it’s designed to be stronger, stiffer and lighter than conventional steel, which provides greater benefits in safety, ride comfort and fuel economy. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ helps protect occupants inside the cabin by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger compartment.
Highway Driving Assist with Highway Auto Curve Slowdown
When actively engaged with both Adaptive Cruise Control with traffic stop and go and Lane Following Assist, this semi-autonomous driving technology helps keep you centred in your lane and travelling at a safe distance behind the vehicle ahead, can help ensure you drive at the specified speed limit and can also automatically slow down the speed of the vehicle before entering a highway curve section for extra safety.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian, Cyclist and Junction-turning Detection
This standard safety feature is designed to detect a vehicle or pedestrian and warn the driver of a potential frontal collision. If the driver does not react to avoid impact, the system will apply emergency braking under certain conditions. The Sonata also features junction-turning detection incorporated into the system, to help make left turns at an intersection safer.
Lane Following Assist
Using the front-view camera to detect lane markers on the road, this feature assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle centred inside the lane.
Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist
Start drifting outside of your lane without signalling and this standard system is designed to inform you with audible and visual cues. If no action is taken, Lane Keeping Assist can apply corrective steering assistance to help keep the vehicle within the lane markings.
Driver Attention Warning
Designed to detect the onset of driver fatigue, this standard system will monitor driver input and issue a visual and audible alert if fatigue is sensed, suggesting a break.
Standard Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance-Assist not only uses radar to detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot, but will also help avoid a collision by gently applying brake power on the opposite tire to help deter an unsafe lane change.
High Beam Assist
Using the front-mounted camera and light detection technology, standard High Beam Assist provides an extra level of convenience by automatically switching between high beams and low beams when traffic is detected ahead.
Safe Exit Warning
When a vehicle approaching from behind is detected, this standard feature warns passengers with an audible alert to help prevent them from stepping out onto the road when it is dangerous.
Rear Occupant Alert
As the engine is turned off, a visual warning in the instrument cluster and audible alert reminds you to check the rear seats before exiting.
