2021 Hyundai Sonata: MPG Ratings

There are five different trims of the Sonata you can choose from, and all of them deliver impressive fuel economy. The MPG ratings are going to vary depending on the engine and trim level you end up picking:

As you can see, the SE base trim provides the highest MPG ratings, but the rest of the trim levels aren't far behind. If you're looking for a bit more power in your engine while still maintaining efficient fuel economy, the other trims can serve just as well.

With the fuel tank capacities on offer, you won't have to worry about constantly stopping to fuel up during your long road trips or everyday commutes.

Hyundai Sonata: Engine Power

Balancing both power and efficiency is important when you're looking for the right ride for your needs. The more power you have under the hood, the lower your fuel economy might be.

  • Standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine: 191 horsepower / 181 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 1.6-liter Turbo 4-cylinder engine: 180 horsepower / 195 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 2.5-liter Turbo 4-cylinder: 290 horsepower / 311 lb-ft of torque

The SE trim, for example, has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that offers 181 lb-ft of torque. This may be less power than the available 1.6-liter Turbo 4-cylinder engine and its 195 lb-ft or torque, but the SE trim offers a higher fuel economy.

When opting for the Sonata N Line, its 2.5-liter Turbo 4-cylinder engine boasts an impressive 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. It will result in a slightly lower fuel economy, but many drivers think that the trade-off is more than worth it.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid: Engine Power

All three trim levels feature the standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine, which puts out 150 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® for a smooth and easy-to-handle ride.

With the available solar roof panel, you'll be able to collect free energy from the sun to recharge the battery and increase your driving range by nearly two miles a day. This evens out to practically an additional 700 miles per year.

Its sleek exterior, active airflap, and rear spoiler improve its aerodynamics as well.

Safety & Security

With all the power that these sedans offer, you're going to want to make sure you also have a plethora of driver-assistant safety features to act as a second set of eyes on the road ahead.

  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go

This feature was created with highway commuters in mind. When traveling at a speed set by you, it will help you keep a safe distance behind other riders by monitoring the flow of traffic and automatically slow down or speed up your sedan. This prevents you from wasting gas and having to constantly slam on the brake and gas pedals.

  • Lane Following Assist

This feature helps you stay securely in the center of your lane by monitoring the road markings and providing gentle steering corrections.

  • Highway Drive Assist

This feature is engaged when Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go or Lane Following Assist is activated. It acts as your copilot to keep you driving at a safe speed while automatically setting your pace based on GPS and highway data.

Additional Amenities

Both the Sonata and the Sonata Hybrid provide an abundance of technology features designed to keep you entertained, no matter how long the drive ahead:

  • Standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration
  • Standard 8-inch color touchscreen with HD Radio™
  • Standard Bluetooth® hands-free with wireless audio streaming

Standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration allows you to easily connect your smartphone to the audio system and stream music, make phone calls, send texts, and access your favorite navigation apps via simple voice commands.

An 8-inch color touchscreen with HD Radio™ comes standard. If you prefer something a bit larger, there's an available 10.25-inch color touchscreen with navigation & traffic flow. This provides you with the quickest route available and real-time traffic updates.

The available Bose® premium audio system delivers a concert-like listening experience, thanks to its 12 speakers.
