New Hyundai Sonata N Line 2021 detailed: Toyota Camry, Mazda 6 rival scores sporty makeover

The Hyundai Sonata N Line’s engine is yet to be detailed, but expect it to pack more than 200kW.

Hyundai has ripped the covers off the N Line version its new Sonata, revealing more aggressive styling in a bid to steal attention away from Toyota and Mazda in the mid-size sedan segment.

The N Line flagship is expected to land in Australian showrooms later this year as the flagship of the eighth-generation Sonata line-up, which will likely skew upmarket given family car preferences switching from sedan to SUV.

Exact details on the sporty N Line are yet to be revealed, but rumours point to an all-new 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine pushing out over 200kW.

For reference, the standard Sonata is powered by a 132kW/232Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which is hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission.

A road-hugging bodykit, 19-inch wheels and quad exhaust tips are also equipped to overseas versions of the Sonata N Line, while bespoke badging can also be found on the grille.

Inside, the N Line is fitted with dark chrome trim, and red-stitch highlights on the steering wheel and sports seats.

The Sonata N Line is expected to be embraced by Australian police departments, specifically in New South wales and Queensland, as they look to refresh their fleets.

Full pricing and spec details of the new-generation Sonata is expected closer to launch.
