The 2023 Hyundai Sonata gives off the impression that it is an expensive car. It is fashionable and excels in several essential areas, such as its attractive and user-friendly infotainment system display, clever parking camera system, and extensive warranty coverage. However, the Sonata falls short when it comes to riding quality and seat comfort, and in other respects, it barely meets what you would expect from a midsize sedan.
The 2023 Hyundai Sonata is a midsize car that is packed with both value and style. The car’s modern appearance, which debuted in 2020, continues to stand out on the road. Hyundai also has a wide variety of models to suit almost anybody. The SE model, which is simple and roomy, is at the bottom of the list, while the loaded-up, actually enjoyable N Line sport sedan is at the top. When you purchase a Sonata, you also enjoy convenient technological features and assurance from Hyundai’s extensive warranty.

The all-new Sonata takes equally good care of its passengers with seats that bolster and support the spine’s natural S-curve so you can really feel the difference that good design makes. The relaxation comfort seat allows the front passenger to unwind by replicating the spinal support of a reclining chaise lounge to achieve a feeling of near weightlessness.
Premium relation seat (passenger)
My comfort zone.
The all-new Sonata has a way of becoming a part of you, an extension of your body. Its seats cradle you while gauges, control knobs and pedals align perfectly with eyes, hands and feet for a sense of complete confidence and total control. The optional 10.25-in HD navigation (1920×720) features split-screen capabilities with a simple and intuitive interface that allows the screen to be divided up to display the three separate functions if multi-tasking is desired.
10.25 inch Navigation
The all-new Sonata takes the next step in Bluetooth pairing by supporting dual devices. Now the driver can enjoy the use of the hands-free function, including optional voice recognition support while the second device is connected to the all-new Sonata for streaming or mp3 file playback.

Lost or misplaced recharging cords? The cord is a thing of the past with the wireless smartphone charging system that ensures your phone will never go dead. The vehicle will even chime a gentle warning should the phone be accidentally left behind after exiting the vehicle.
The walk-in device button extends front seat control functions to the rear seat passenger such as chauffeured executives who may want extra legroom. It’s one of many interior details that demonstrate careful consideration for comfort and convenience.

A maximum power of 180ps at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 23.7kg∙m at 4,000rpm.
Power with precision.
Shift-by-wire automatic transmission
Sonata dials it up with a choice of two new and improved powertrains mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Gear selection is controlled by a new shift-by-wire selector that makes for safer, more precise and fool-proof gear changes and its smaller footprint clears up valuable space on the center console. This same push-button convenience is brought to the optional electronic parking brake which comes with auto-hold that allows the driver to remove his foot from the brake pedal during stops to relax the leg muscles while maintaining brake pressure.
Providing safety to drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other drivers.
Lane Following Assist (LFA)
This function uses the front-facing camera to detect the painted lane markers and notify the driver of any departure from the lane without the prior use of the turn signal. When necessary, it issues a corrective steering input that automatically guides you back into the lane and prevents unintended lane departure.
Some features illustrated on this page are not available in your market.
Take every precaution.
Sonata leaps to the front of the race for a lighter, more rigid body structure by using more high-specification steel alloys than ever before. Not only is the body the stiffest ever, but it is 24kg lighter and quieter than previous generation models. That ensures Sonata meets and, in many cases, even exceeds the most stringent crash safety test standards in the world. Depowered front airbags are supplied as standard equipment but thoracic/pelvic airbags for the driver and front passenger are optional as are full-length side curtain airbags.
Multiple skeleton engine room structure
Safety critical sub-substructures, particularly the dash crossmembers and A-pillars are made with hot-stamped steel to attain the highest possible rigidity and better withstand crash impact forces. The novel design even protects cabin occupants against the dangers of secondary impacts—the collisions that can often take place after the initial collision.
9 airbag system
Driver and front passenger are protected by depowered-type airbags that minimize the risk of injury caused by airbag deployment.
They offer optional protection from side impacts in the form of curtain airbags which provide head protection and thoracic/pelvic airbags that protect the driver and front seat passenger.
2023 Hyundai Sonata Safety
A road mishap may not be on your radar but Hyundai SmartSense is always ready for the worst. SmartSense encompasses Hyundai’s cutting-edge Advanced Driver Safety Assistance Systems(ADAS). ADAS has your back, protecting you with features like Lane Keeping Assist and Safe Exit Assist that are continuously on the lookout, working quietly behind the scenes scanning the road for signs of trouble. You may not be aware of that car in the blind spot, but Sonata’s Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist is perfectly aware and will alert you to its presence. Sonata ADAS technology loves you and protects you like family.
Safe Exit Assist (SEA)
SEA blocks any attempt to disengage the child safety lock and prevents the rear door from opening when it is unsafe to do so. On detecting the presence of a rear seat passenger and the approach of a vehicle from the rear, SEA will also flash a pop-up message on the cluster and will issue an audible alarm, alerting the driver to the danger.
Surround View Monitor (SVM)
SVM uses the AVN head unit to serve up a 360-degree birdseye view of the car and its surroundings. This optional system comes in quite handy when trying to fit the car into a tight parking spot.
Blind spot view monitor
Apply high-level safety technologies to provide an active safety image that allows the car to think about and take care of its safety.
