2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Interior Review


Interior: 7.9

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid's interior is a great place to be. It boasts top-notch cabin materials and a generous amount of passenger space and cargo room. It also comes standard with many user-friendly infotainment features and loads of advanced safety tech.

  • “Almost everywhere you touch, there are soft plastics or remarkable leather surfaces. From the seats to the door panels to the steering wheel, Hyundai equipped the Sonata Hybrid Limited with premium materials. Just like the exterior promises, the interior feels like a luxury car." -- Motor Trend (2020)
  • "This solid cabin tech is just the beginning, though. The Sonata's interior is outstanding, with a handsome and refined overall aesthetic. Everything you touch feels great, from the soft leather on the steering wheel to the nice graining of the plastic on the door cards. There are even small, beautiful details you wouldn't expect to see in a mainstream midsize sedan, like the knurling on the turn signal stalk and temperature controls. The last time I saw something like this, it was in a Bentley Continental GT." -- CNET (2020)


With 16 cubic feet of trunk space, the Sonata Hybrid has an above-average cargo capacity for the hybrid and electric car class. In fact, it has the same amount of space as the nonhybrid Sonata. You can also expand the cargo area by folding down the standard 60/40-split-folding rear seats.

  • "Even in the cargo area, the Sonata Hybrid has a ton of room–16.0 cubic feet to be precise–and that's pretty good even when you compare it to the gas model's." -- Motor Trend (2020)
  • "The lithium-ion battery pack is mounts (sic) beneath the rear seat and in front of the 13.2-gallon fuel tank, which means the Sonata Hybrid’s trunk is as large as the standard model’s." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "Hyundai has repositioned the … Sonata Hybrid's battery, too, resulting in a much more generous 16 cubic feet of space, compared to the 2019 model's 13.4." -- CNET (2020)


There’s seating for up to five people inside the Sonata Hybrid. Both rows are spacious enough to fit four adults comfortably, and the rear seats can accommodate three adults in relative comfort during short commutes.

Cloth upholstery and manually adjustable front seats are standard. Many upgrades are available, including an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a four-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, memory settings for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, and a rear center armrest with dual cup holders.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat. This LATCH system is relatively easy to use, but the lower anchors are set too deeply in the seats.

  • "The Sonata’s 5-passenger cabin is open and contemporary, and the driver’s seat is comfortable even after hours behind the wheel." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The cabin is also spacious, with enough room for a 6-foot passenger to fit comfortably behind a 6-foot driver." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "Overall, the cabin is open and airy, with more than enough room for four adults, or three-across in back (in a pinch)." -- CNET (2020)

Interior Features

The Sonata Hybrid comes with a user-friendly infotainment system that features an 8-inch touch screen that's responsive and easy to reach (a 10.25-inch touch screen is standard in the Limited trim). The control panel also has physical buttons for temperature and volume functions, making it easy for the driver to adjust these settings on the go. However, some reviewers wish there was a physical knob for controlling the radio.

In addition to the touch screen, standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, six-speakers, HD Radio, satellite radio, a BlueLink telematics app, a USB port, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start. Several active safety features are also standard, including a rearview camera, a rear-seat reminder, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, high-beam assist, lane keep assist, lane follow assist, and driver attention warning.

Available features include the 10.25-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, wireless device charging, dual USB ports, navigation, a solar roof, a head-up display, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a 360-degree parking camera system, and rear park assist.

  • "Controls to adjust common functions like volume and climate are easy to find and use, but we wish the Sonata had a dial for radio tuning and track selection." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Climate controls are simple, the high-mounted touchscreen is easy to use, and the overall look is a little less cluttered thanks to a switch from a traditional transmission lever to buttons for park, drive, etc." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "As a touchscreen should be, it is quick to respond to even light touches and is surrounded by just the right amount of hard buttons." -- Car and Driver (2020)
