A General Overview

In keeping with the promise of safety, all models come with spectacular protective features. Forward collision mitigation warns you when it expects a crash and even brakes for you. To avoid accidents, adaptive cruise control adjusts the distance between your vehicle and other cars. Other safety features include lane assist and driver attention warning. But the Sonata isn't just about safety! This sedan comes loaded with tech features, lots of trunk space, and a whole lot of style. With a reputation for attention to detail, advanced technology, and safety, Hyundai delivers an impressive new Sonata!

The Trims

The new Hyundai sedan is available in six trims. Each trim varies quite a bit on features, but they all include great fuel efficiency, extra technology, and a roomy interior. In fact, this year's Sonata is so roomy that the EPA has classified it as a "large car" rather than a midsize sedan. Each trim level seats five people, with a narrow back middle seat. The seats are the standard 60/40 split across all Sonatas. Other standard features include external temperature displays, rear window defroster, and tilt-and-telescoping steering. Now let's go in-depth and explore the 2022 Hyundai Sonata's six trims!

SE Trim

The SE trim features a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter 191 horsepower engine, and 8-speed automatic transmission. Not bad for a family-sized sedan! With a 14.8-gallon tank, the SE gets 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. You'll get 16 cubic feet of trunk space and 46" of legroom in the front. This is a car that'll make road trips, commutes, and leisurely driving enjoyable! Inside you'll find premium cloth seats with a 6-way adjustable driver's seat. Looking for entertainment options? The SE has an 8" color touchscreen with HD Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capability.

Standout features:

  • Easy parking: a rearview monitor with parking assist helps you squeeze into any spot!
  • Chrome accents: window moldings, door handles, and side rocker panels get chrome accents.

SEL Trim

The SEL trim enjoys the same engine specs as the SE but with different gas mileage. A slightly bigger tank of 15.9 gallons gets you 27 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway. The SEL model also offers premium cloth upholstery but gets an upgrade with heating options. The driver's seat features an 8-way adjustable seat with lumbar support, making long drives easier! For entertainment, the SEL comes with an 8" color touchscreen unit with HD Radio, SiriusXM, and Bluelink. Bose premium audio with 12 speakers is an additional option for this trim. If you want the best sound quality, go for that upgrade!

Standout features:

  • Optional convenience package: includes a sunroof, digital key, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and much more.
  • Extra safety: includes blind-spot and rear-cross traffic collision assistance and safe exit warning.

SEL Plus Trim

The SEL Plus trim is a very upgraded version of the SEL trim. It has many of the same features, but the main difference is the engine. The SEL Plus features a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter 180 horsepower turbo engine. This trim comes standard with the optional convenience package offered in the SEL. This means a panoramic sunroof, digital key, and more bonuses! The interior highlights upgraded materials with Dinamica microfiber inserts in the front. A larger touchscreen of 10.25" and dynamic voice recognition round out the extra details.

Standout features:

  • Speedy engine: the turbo engine will have you zooming around town!
  • Upgraded luxury touches: digital key, panoramic sunroof, and improved media console give it a luxurious feel.

Limited Trim

The Limited trim is very similar to the SEL Plus version, with some upgraded touches. This top-of-the-line version is all about the luxury car feel! It has premium LED headlights, full LED taillights, and a leather interior. A heated steering wheel will keep your hands toasty while ambient lighting makes the drive much nicer!

Standout features:

  • Simplifying Life: an integrated memory system for front seats and mirrors.
  • Extra Safety: front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot view, and collision avoidance.

N Line Trim

The sporty cousin of the Limited trim, the N Line allows a much faster ride. A 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter 290 horsepower turbo engine will make you think you've just bought a sports car! The exterior also gets an upgrade to look sleeker and elegant. Glossy black side mirrors and window surroundings paired with black trim give it a speedy look.

Standout features:

  • Sporty good looks: a sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and unique decorative panels.
  • Powerful engine: a 290 horsepower turbo engine makes this the best Hyundai Sonata performance vehicle.

N Line Night Trim

A special edition of the N Line trim, the Night is a darker, moodier version with matte black finishes and chrome accents. Other than the upgraded aesthetics, the N Line Night and N Line trims don't have many specification differences.

Standout features:

  • Smooth Ride: Matte black 19-inch alloys and 245/40 R19 tires give you the smoothest ride.
  • Stealthy and Cool: Dark chrome front and rear badge, as well as matte black mirrors and door handles up the cool factor.
