After a complete makeover two years ago, the Hyundai Sonata returned for 2022 with an all-new N-Line Performance Edition, which Hyundai calls “our most powerful Sonata ever”.
Hyundai recently added 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 and an impressive 290 horsepower and 311 foot-pounds of torque.
It’s paired to an N-Line-exclusive 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters and drive-mode selection.
There are also special appearance features, including a black mesh grille with N-Line badging, unique 19-inch alloy wheels with 245/40R19 tires and special front and rear aprons. There are also two twin exhaust outlets (four outlets total).
Other exterior features include a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights with automatic light control, touchless intelligent trunk release and LED daytime running lights.
