After a complete makeover two years ago, the Hyundai Sonata returned for 2022 with an all-new N-Line performance edition that Hyundai bills as “Our most powerful Sonata ever.”
Hyundai has recently added the N-Line special treatment to several of its models, and for the Sonata, the biggest news is what’s under the hood.
The Sonata N-Line ($33,750 plus $1,045 freight) comes with Hyundai’s Smartstream 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an impressive 290 horsepower and 311 foot-pounds of torque.
It’s paired with an N-Line exclusive eight-speed wet dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters, complete with Drive Mode Select.
There are special appearance features, as well, including a black mesh grille with N-Line badge, unique 19-inch alloy wheels fitted with 245/40R19 tires, and special front and rear fascia. There are also dual twin exhaust outlets (four outlets in total).
Other exterior features include a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights with automatic light control, hands-free smart trunk release, and LED daytime running lights.
