The 2021 model is the follow-up to the 2020 Hyundai Sonata that launched a new Sonata generation, so the specifications are the same. The Sonata is a midsize sedan built on a wheelbase that measures about 112 inches. The overall length, width and height are about 193, 73 and 57 inches, respectively. The minimum ground clearance is 5.3 inches. The standard wheels are 16-inch alloy. There are also 17- to 19-inch wheels available as you move up the trim levels. The four core trims are the SE, SEL, SEL Plus and Limited. One of the big changes for 2021 is that Hyundai has also introduced a racier N Line trim. The N Line has a special blacked-out grille, twin exhaust and numerous other style enhancements.

Both the 2021 and 2020 Hyundai Sonata are two-row sedans with seating for five. Front legroom was expanded to 46.1 for this new generation, and rear legroom remained relatively the same at 34.8 inches. The trunk provides 16 cubic feet of cargo space. One of the changes for the 2021 model is a safe exit warning system. This system warns you if you will be opening a door into oncoming traffic. The new N Line trim is also notable for its exclusive features. These include a special leather-wrapped steering wheel and deluxe sport seating with leather bolsters and red contrast stitching. Standard equipment includes an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. A 10.25-inch touchscreen and a premium Bose audio system become optional with the SEL Plus and standard with the Limited and N Line.

The introduction of the N Line-which became available a little later in the year than the other trims-has generated a lot of hype when it comes to comparing the 2021 Hyundai Sonata vs 2020 Hyundai Sonata in Rhode Island. Hyundai offers several powertrains, which are available based on the trim you select. All are front-wheel drive and feature an eight-speed automatic transmission, but in the case of the N Line, it is a twin-clutch transmission. The base SE and up-level SEL models have a 2.5L inline-four-cylinder engine that makes 191 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. The SEL Plus and Limited have a turbocharged 1.6L inline-four-cylinder engine that makes 180 hp and 195 lb.-ft. The N Line is performance oriented and on another level it entirely. It boasts a turbocharged 2.5L inline-four-cylinder engine that makes 290 hp and 311 lb.-ft.
