Today we will inform you about the updates obtained by the 2021 Hyundai Sonata in its eighth generation, which began 2019 as a model for the year 2020. As a reminder, the 2020 model was test-driven by our colleague Karim Deeb in one of the episodes of the Test Drive program and he informed us about the advantages and disadvantages of this new Korean car.
10 days ago we posted an article about the updates obtained by the 2021 Toyota Camry, and today we will introduce the updates obtained by the Korean mid-size sedan.
Since the latest generation of Hyundai Sonata was revealed recently, the updates of the 2021 model were simple and very limited, but it was necessary to make these updates in order to increase the sales of this category of cars, which has witnessed a decrease in sales in recent years, in favor of increasing demand on crossover and SUV models.

Following a complete redesign in 2020, the 2021 Sonata model line features available 19-inch wheels and tires. The 19-inch alloy wheels with 245/40 R19 Pirelli P Zero™ tires are now standard on the turbocharged SEL Plus trim, surrounded by P-Zero All-Season tires.
Safe Exit Warning (SEW) also has been added to SEL, SEL Plus, and Limited trims. SEW uses existing blind-spot radar sensors to automatically warn the driver and passengers if oncoming traffic is detected when parallel parked. The system provides an audible warning and a popup message in the cluster to ‘Watch for Traffic’ to help to prevent back-seat passengers from stepping out into traffic.
The top-of-the-line audio and navigation display is a wide, high-definition, customizable, 10.25-inch touchscreen monitor with split screens and natural language, and cloud-based speech recognition powered by Blue Link, while the cluster display is a full 12.3 inches.
This Hyundai car will maintain its 10.25-inch touchscreen monitor with split screens and natural language, and cloud-based speech recognition powered by Blue Link, while the cluster display is a full 12.3 inches.
The 2021 Sonata will be available for sale at Hyundai dealerships this August, God willing, and its official price has not been revealed at the moment.
