From offering comfortable commuting to safe traveling, the Hyundai Sonata and 2021 Nissan Altima are two sedans that provide a lot of benefits for drivers near the Burleson, Fort Worth, Benbrook, Arlington, and Dallas, TX, areas, looking for a new car.
To really figure out, though, which one is ideal for you, it is time to get a closer look at the two side by side, which is what our Hiley Hyundai of Burleson team has done. Keep reading below to discover more about the Hyundai Sonata vs. Nissan Altima and figure out which model you like best!
There are a lot of similarities in the performance of these two sedans. They each come with a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, which offers efficient performance within both cars. However, the Sonata is able to produce slightly more power. Plus, it offers two available turbo engines, with its most powerful option providing 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. At most, the Nissan Altima creates 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque when powered by its available turbo engine.
As you continue to look at the numbers and figures, you will also see that the Hyundai Sonata offers more interior space for you as well as your passengers. Up front, there are 40 inches of headroom, and 46.1 inches of legroom. The back row enjoys 38.4 inches of headroom.
The Altima has 39.2 inches of front headroom, along with 43.8 inches of front legroom. The rear seats have 36.9 inches of headroom. You’ll also have 16 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk of the Sonata, compared to the 15.4 cubic feet of cargo volume offered in the trunk of the 2021 Altima.
Now, let’s see what features they each have inside their cabins. While each offers available leather seating, the Sonata takes things a step further with the extremely luxurious available Nappa leather seating surfaces.
While heated front seats are available in both cars, the available ventilated front seats that just the Hyundai Sonata offers will definitely get more use from our drivers here in Texas! Each also comes with a center touchscreen, which you can integrate your smartphone with and access various apps, your messages, music, and more.
The display in the Sonata is slightly larger, though, giving you easy control and a great view of various infotainment settings and features. You can also get the available 12.3-inch LCD cluster and an available Heads-up Display in the Hyundai Sonata that will conveniently keep you informed of your speed, fuel consumption, safety alerts, and more as you drive. The largest dashboard display available in the Altima is seven inches, and it doesn’t offer a heads-up display.
We wanted to quickly highlight the safety features that these cars offer. With a handful of driver-assistive features, both standard and available, these cars are ready to give you more peace of mind during your daily commute.
There are a few innovative safety features you can only get with the Sonata, including the available Remote Smart Parking Assist. Let’s say you found a parking spot, but it seems a little tight—even too tight to open your car doors once you’ve parked. Not to worry, as this system lets you stand outside of the car, push a button, and have your Sonata safely pull in or out of the parking space!
As you can see, the Hyundai Sonata offers a spacious, well-appointed, and high-tech cabin along with athletic performance for the ultimate driving experience around the Burleson, Fort Worth, Benbrook, Arlington, and Dallas, TX, areas. To really see if it is the car for you, come test drive it today at Hiley Hyundai of Burleson!
