The new 2022 Hyundai Sonata is coming soon to South Bay Hyundai in Torrance, CA, and you don't want to miss it! Before getting into the details of features in the Sonata, let's talk about something important. The emissions standards for cars are getting stricter in 2020, intending to eliminate gas-powered engines by 2030. So, if you're not looking at electric cars like the Sonata, then your next purchase will likely be your last one.

So, what are the three things you need to know about this upcoming model? Let's take a look.

1. It's Just as Powerful

Los Angeles drivers looking to buy a new car will often look at the horsepower number—power the engine can produce—and is typically displayed on a sticker toward the rear of the car. However, this statistic does not always translate into performance; many factors contribute to how fast you can get from 0-60 mph, and things like wind resistance and tire traction can affect your car's performance.

The 2022 Hyundai Sonata is just as powerful as the previous model, even though it is much lighter! This new model comes in at about 1,200 pounds less than the previous version. As a result, the Hyundai Sonata will be one of the fastest models on the market, as it will have a 0-60 mph time of under 8 seconds. That's comparable to many sports cars.

When it comes to the engine itself, the new model comes with a standard four-cylinder engine that can produce over 200-horsepower. That's nothing to sneeze at! Many other upgrades will allow this car to move quickly; you can expect approximately 30 mpg on the highway and approximately 15 mpg in the city. You'll get where you're going in style, and you'll save some cash at the pump while doing it.

2. It Has Updated Technology

The new Hyundai Sonata has plenty of updates to its technology as well, which makes it an attractive option for many Carson, CA buyers. For one thing, the steering wheel now comes with touch-sensitive pads on either side of the wheel that will allow you to control your music and phone without having to take your hands off the wheel. The backseat also comes with a reclining option, which is a cool feature if you've got kids who fall asleep in the car a lot.

The car itself is Bluetooth compatible, which means that you can sync your phone to the stereo system so that you can play your favorite music through your speakers. You'll also have access to many other connectivity options with this system, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for Redondo Beach smartphone users.

3. It's Very Safe

When you're buying a car, one of the most important things to consider is safety. After all, your car should be able to protect you in case of an accident, which means that it needs to be sturdy and well-built. The new 2022 Hyundai Sonata has passed many government organizations that show it is a safe option.

In addition to passing the crash tests administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this car also passed many of the stricter safety mandates that may soon be mandatory in all cars in the United States. The safety requirement includes having side airbags throughout the cabin and a full suite of airbags in the front and the back. You can be sure that you will be in good hands when you're in this car.

So, there you have it! The three most notable things to know about the new 2022 Hyundai Sonata! It's powerful, has great technology, and is very safe, making for a great car to buy for yourself or your family.
