The 2019 Hyundai Sonata comes in one of 5 separate and excellent-in-their-own-way models: the SE, SEL, Sport, Limited, and the Limited 2.0T. Let’s go through them quickly here while we have a moment!
With a standard 185-hp engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC, this Sonata is going places! The 2.4L 4-cylinder has 178 lb-ft of torque to power it through, while you enjoy some stellar features, such as a rearview camera, a 7″ touchscreen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto for smartphones, and even standard Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert! Look to achieve 26/35/29 city/hwy/combined with this power-train configuration. It also rides on 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/65 R16 tires.
Look for an 8-way power driver seat on this model, along with items like heated front seats, a hands-free smart-trunk release, solar control glass, 17-inch wheels, a sporty front bumper/grille combo, and Proximity Key entry with a push-button start. Also, Lane Keep Assist (LKA), as well as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, become an option. There’s an entire array of safety on the Sonata, including Rear LATCH tethers for children, a tire pressure monitoring system, Remote keyless entry system with alarm, and more!
Get your hands on the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on this model and you’ll know it’s the Sport! The Sport grille, rear diffuser, 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/55 R17 tires, and sporty front fascia also add to this one’s athletic build. Inside, note the cloth-insert leather seats as well as a power tilt-and-slide sunroof! Also comes with Vehicle Stability Management as standard, ABS, Projector headlights, chrome exterior door handles.
Simply have to have luxury? Then this is the trim for you! This one lauds items like LED headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, ventilated/heated leather front seats, Auto-Emergency Braking, an option for 8-inch touchscreen navigation, and even a Smart Cruise Control with Start/Stop. Then it throws on for good measure dual fold-away heated power bodycolor side mirrors, 17″ alloy wheels, Chrome-tipped single exhaust, and an optional Panoramic sunroof.
LIMITED 2.0T TRIM:
This one is the best of both worlds: it has luxury coupled with raw power! As you might imagine, this model installs a truly capable 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with 245-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and partners it up smartly to an 8-speed auto transmission with SHIFTRONIC! It doesn’t stop there though, it also brings in a Panoramic sunroof, aluminum pedals, an 8″ touchscreen for an incredible Infinity audio system, 18″ alloy wheels, as well as steering wheel-mounted audio, Bluetooth, and cruise controls.
