There are a total of five gas-only Sonata trims and three hybrid models on offer, and there's something for every taste and budget. The lineup starts with the SE, which is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter engine producing 191 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base model includes standard driver assistance tech such as forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and lane following assist. The SEL adds heated front seats, a power driver's seat, and extra safety tech, including blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, and safe exit warning. For 2023, the SEL gains a 10.3-inch infotainment display.
The SEL Plus comes standard with the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine producing 180 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque and adds luxuries such as a panoramic sunroof and wireless phone charging. The N Line gets a 290-hp 2.5-liter turbocharged engine and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Inside, N Line models get unique seats and other interior features. The Limited gets all the goodies, including leather seats with ventilation in front, a head-up display, and a surround-view monitor. The N Line Night Edition adds visual appeal thanks to a set of unique wheels and sporty exterior trim.
Hybrid models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine which makes a combined 192 hp and 139 lb-ft. The base Blue is similarly specced to the SE, but with dual-zone climate control additionally. SEL and Limited models gain more features, such as premium sound and leather upholstery.
With most features baked into the trims, the Hyundai Sonata's cost won't change dramatically by adding options. There are no optional packages available for the base model, and the SEL is the first to be offered with the $2,200 Convenience package, which adds premium features such as a panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless phone charging, and a Hyundai digital key. N Line models are offered with optional summer tires for $200, and there are tons of smaller accessories available across the board, including cargo nets, wheel locks, and mudguards.
