The Sonata SE houses a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine under the hood that makes it possible for you to make use of 191 horsepower. Not only does this mean the Sonata is fun to drive-it allows you to be confident that it can hold its own throughout a plethora of challenges. 

Next, we'll turn to the interior of the SE trim. Here, you and your passengers can enjoy premium cloth seating surfaces and stay comfy with standard air conditioning. For convenient entertainment, the center dash is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen display to control your HD Radio® audio system. 

When you take a look at the SE exterior, you'll notice LED headlights and LED taillights, and solar control glass to keep the heat away from your passengers during a sunny drive.

Hyundai Sonata SEL

A few upgrades are immediately noticeable in the cockpit. Unlock your Sonata and start driving with ease thanks to a Proximity Key with push button start. You can stay warm on colder morning commutes, with heated front seats and dual automatic temperature control

In addition to LED headlights, you'll also have standard LED daytime running lights and heated fold-away sideview mirrors. Drive comfortably with a tactile heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The front fascia gets a shift from the base level bumper and grille to a sport-oriented design.

Hyundai Sonata SEL Plus

The SEL Plus trim comes with several features that help make your time on the road even more enjoyable. For starters, there's wireless device charging that makes it possible for you and your passengers to leave your phone chargers at home. As soon as one of your devices starts to run low on battery power, all you have to do is place it on the tray to get it charged up in no time!

There's also the auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink®. The mirror itself successfully keeps you from being distracted or momentarily blinded whenever bright lights appear from behind. With HomeLink®, you have the ability to control aspects of your home's exterior security, such as the garage door, lighting, and more. 

The engine that this trim uses to get you from Point A to Point B is a 1.6-liter turbo 4-cylinder that's able to produce as much as 180 horsepower.

Hyundai Sonata N Line

With the Sonata N Line, the engine is changed once again. this time around, it's the 2.5-liter Turbo 4-cylinder that propels you down the road. It does so with a maximum of 290 horsepower. 

The N Line uses its panoramic sunroof to provide you and your passengers with an additional source of invigorating sunlight and fresh air. In addition to that, everyone has the opportunity to take in some pretty amazing scenery! 

Whenever you're traveling through unfamiliar territory, the standard 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation is there to help you arrive at your destination on time. Plus, the largeness of its screen sees to it that you're also able to devote the necessary amount of attention toward the road in front of you.  

This trim also boosts your listening experience by supplying you with the Bose® premium audio system that comes with 12 full-bodied speakers. Whether you're on your way to work, taking a road trip, or simply running a few errands, you're sure to have a great time listening to the tunes that keep you rolling from place to place. 

Hyundai Sonata Limited

The Limited is the highest Hyundai Sonata trim. As such, it delivers plenty of advanced elements. Here are a few of the safety characteristics that you're sure to appreciate from behind the wheel:

  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist

After you set the distance that you would like to have between you and the vehicle in front of you, the Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go maintains it by adjusting your speed with the flow of traffic. It can even bring you to a stop and back up to speed when necessary. 

Making moves from lane to lane is a lot easier thanks to the Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist that lets you know when someone is occupying one of your blind-spot areas. Similarly, the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist tells you when a vehicle has crossed into the path behind you while you're backing up.
