City/Hwy Fuel Economy
Horsepower, 2.5L Theta III Smartstream 4 Cylinder
Built To Perform
In perfect harmony, the 2021 Sonata offers a flush performance from the help of its 2.5L Theta III Smartsteam GDI + MPI DOHC 4-cylinder engine paired up with Smartstream 8-speed automatic transmission with overdrive lock-up torque converter shift lock and SHITRONICTM mode. The combination happily puts the power of 191 horses at your fingertips along with 181 lb-ft of torque for powerful propulsion at any speed, in any scenario. Those inclined for a peppier ride that the Sonata is known for may be inclined to upgrade to the Sport, Luxury or Ultimate trims to take advantage of the Sporty 1.6L Gamma II Smartstream Turbo-GDI engine that, while very slightly dropping the max output horsepower to 180, brings the available torque up to 195 lb-ft giving you that extra push behind your accelerator.
Advanced Safety Technology
Deemed by IIHS as Top Safety Pick when equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking and LED headlights, the 2021 Sonata features everything you need to make sure you and your passengers can feel at ease during every trip. 7 standard airbags surround passengers for fail-safe padding in the event of a collision, while advanced technologies such as Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear-cross Traffic Alert help keep you alert to your surroundings at all times. Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection uses a forward camera and radar sensors to give you a heads up in case of anything incoming object or person and help mitigate any incident. All these features are wrapped inside of the Hyundai SUPERSTRUCTURETM frame, using Advanced High Strength Steel to ensure strong and rigid frames to protect everyone inside by redirecting shock away from where any occupants are.
