Sonata That Sings
Hyundai continues to move away from its early days of budget sedans with the 2021 Sonata N Line, a stylish, high-performance version of the popular Sonata midsized sedan. The South Korean automaker took its $23,700 base Sonata and loaded it up with tons of luxury and sporty features to create the N Line, with a name honoring Germany's famous Nurburgring race course and Hyundai's own Namyang proving ground. An all-new trim line for 2021, the Sonata N Line starts at $33,300.
Hyundai bills the N Line as "The Most Powerful Sonata Ever. Fun-To-Drive. Never Looked This Good." Much of the allure comes from the vehicle's four-cylinder, turbocharged engine, which cranks out a beefy 290 horsepower. I recently tested a Sonata N Line done in a sexy Hampton Gray exterior and gray-and-black interior.
