We’re big admirers of the accepted bearing of Hyundai Sonata . It’s acceptable to drive, efficient, well-equipped and a absolute stunner. Still, alike with all that, we’ve been cat-and-mouse for the N Line adaptation to accomplish its admission back our man Antuan Goodwin collection the ancestor N Line in 2019.
Thankfully, that delay is over. Hyundai debuted the 2021 Sonata N Line on Tuesday, and not alone does it booty the Sonata’s left-of-center acceptable looks and crank up the assailment a little, but it additionally does so after authoritative the accomplished affair attending cartoonish or weird. We’re big fans.
The Sonata N Line gets the subbrand’s cascading, blacked-out grille and badging as able-bodied as a racy-looking quad-tip exhaust. Inside, things are almost subdued, but we like the added aggressive-looking seats with N embroidery, the aphotic chrome trim and the red stitching. It’s not over the top, but that’s acceptable because the Sonata isn’t an over-the-top car.
While not actuality a full-fat N archetypal like it’s Veloster cousin, the N-Line Sonata promises big achievement for a reasonable price.
Hyundai isn’t giving us too abundant added advice on the accessible model, like what array of achievement additions it will get with the N Line trim. The aggregation did acquaint us that best of the being we saw in the ancestor survives the adventure to assembly — best conspicuously the turbo 2.5-liter agent with its 290 application and 310 pound-feet of torque.
Hyundai assembly accepted that we’ll get addition heaping allowance of Sonata N-Line advice on Oct. 21, so we’ll aloof accept to sit patiently until then.
Hyundai’s new-design Sonata was already a attractive car.
