2019 Sonata: Performance Specs 

Hyundai Sonata

In the gas-only 2019 Sonata models, you'll find three powertrains, each tuned for a different type of ride. Let's look closer at your options:

  • 2.4L 4-cylinder: 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque
  • Turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder:178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque
  • Turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder: 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque

The base engine is ideal for around-town driving and will get you to your destination without fuss. For the best fuel economy, the turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder in the Sonata Eco gets an EPA-estimated 28 city and 37 highway MPG. You'll enjoy those fuel-saving figures! 

If you want even more efficiency, there are also hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Sonata. However, the 245-horsepower gas engine is the best for acceleration and will be useful on the highway. 

Cabin Comfort: Interior Features

The cabin of the Hyundai Sonata is an incredibly relaxing place to find oneself. Cloth seats come standard, but the Sonata Sport+ comes with leather-trimmed side bolsters for a little more style. Those bolsters help when you take corners quickly-as do the firmer seats in the Sport+, designed to keep you in your place. 

The Sonata Limited comes with full leather, and you'll love the soft-to-the-touch quality. For the hot South Carolina climate, available dual-zone climate control is a useful feature. Driver and front passenger can each set their ideal temperature for their respective zones, so everyone is comfy and happy. 

Latest Safety Features & Ratings

The 2019 Sonata is a popular family sedan, and safety is essential for a car like that. Fortunately, this ride is engineered with safety in mind. It has earned an NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, the organization's highest honor, indicating it can successfully reduce the risk of injury in an accident. 

Ideally, you want to prevent accidents before they happen, and the Sonata offers plenty of driver-assist technology to help do just that. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert comes standard and will alert you to cars detected in your blind spot, so you can safely change lanes. 

Several more features are available, including Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning. Each will help you drive more safely in a range of driving scenarios.
