2020 Hyundai Sonata vs 2019 Hyundai Sonata

Serving Memphis, TN

The 2019 Sonata has extraordinary appeal and has been a top pick among car shoppers in the local area. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is a next-generation model of this popular midsize car. With this generational change, you will discover exciting updates throughout the interior and exterior in styling and features. Performance and technologies have also been updated. At Wolfchase Hyundai, we are excited to show off the updates to the 2020 model and to assist with your test drive comparison of the Sonata for both years.


For 2019, the Sonata is available with several powertrain designs that include gas, hybrid, and plug-in electric hybrid versions. The 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter engine that is offered in the 2019 model is replaced by a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces 191 horsepower. In higher trims, the 1.6-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is available in the 2019 model is also found in the higher trims of the 2020 model, but it has been improved to deliver 180 horsepower. The Sonata N-Line is a new Sonata trim available in 2020 mated with a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder gas engine with a dual-clutch 8-speed auto transmission. This duo gives you 290 horsepower. The N-Line for 2020 also has a performance-tuned suspension system.


The 2019 Hyundai Sonata has modern styling throughout, and this is elevated dramatically with the generational transformation. The Sonata’s new look includes a broader and longer body. These are minor dimensional changes that combine to lay the foundation for significant overall change. One of the more prominent areas of improvement is with the 2020 Sonata’s longer, sportier hood. The grille also has been completely redesigned with an aggressive edge, and contouring is well-defined. One of the most stunning exterior design features on the Sonata is the daytime running light ribbon. This ribbon traces the lower portion of the headlight before turning sharply and running up over part of the hood. These light strips appear to be part of the chrome accent trim when they are not illuminated.


The 2020 Hyundai Sonata introduces several all-new features, and it standardizes other equipment that was optional in the 2019 model. For 2020, the base trim now has standard equipment like adaptive cruise control, high beam assist, an 8-inch touch display screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and auto emergency braking. Some trims also have leather seating, a Bose sound system with 12-speakers, a wireless charging pad, a navigation system, lane centering, lane follow assist, a full surround-view camera, a blind-spot monitor, and other desired items.
