The 2022 Hyundai Sonata N Line Night Edition adds a little flash to the sporty sedan, but you must act quickly because only 1,000 of them will be available in the United States. The starting price is $34,750 (plus a $1,025 destination charge).
The Night Edition upgrades the regular Sonata N Line with darker elements including carbon fiber reinforced plastic parts for the rear lip spoiler and wheel centre caps are included in the kit. The vehicle has a black chrome finish on its exterior badges. The brake calipers are red in color. The car rolls on 19-inch wheels with a matte black finish to put the dark cherry on this even darker cake.
The Hyundai Elantra Night Edition comes in Phantom Black or Quartz White. The dark Sonata has matte black mirror caps and door handle covers, as well as a black body. Quartz White vehicles have these pieces in the same color as the rest of the car.
The 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the Sonata N Line produces 290 horsepower (216 kilowatts) and 311 pound-feet (422 newton-meters) of torque. It is connected to an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox that drives the front wheels. To bring the car to a stop, there are 13.6-inch brake rotors up front and 12/8-inch rotors at the rear – much larger than the standard models. There’s a quicker steering ratio, too. Lock to lock comes in 2.44 turns compared to the standard 2.6.
The inside of the vehicle is composed of Nappa leather and Dinamica microfiber suede, with red contrast stitching. The N logo is on the seatbacks, and there’s dark chrome trim around the cabin. The instrument cluster features a 12.3-inch display. Navigation is integrated into the infotainment system, which has a 10.25-inch screen and Bose audio. There are 12 speakers and a radio from Bose. A panoramic roof with slide function is also standard equipment.
The base model, the 2022 N Line Sonata, will start at $33,450 before destination. The Night Edition is a $1,300 price increase to include the black body parts and wheels.
