The Sonata, part of Hyundai's lineup for decades, is a midsize sedan with seating up to 5. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Sonata packs some oomph. Hyundai offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2021 Hyundai Sonata has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0477% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.4495%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0477% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.4495% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is 1% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is 7% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2021 Hyundai Sonata: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED). Optional safety features on the 2021 Hyundai Sonata which we recommend include Lane Departure Warning System and Blind-Spot View Monitoring.
Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Hyundai Sonata. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
