2021 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2021 Nissan Altima

With good gas mileage and user-friendly technology features to accompany that, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata is a midsize car that you will love. This is gifted with an upscale interior too, with spacious seats to accommodate passengers of all sizes, shapes, and ages. Some features are shuffled between trims as well.

In the case of the Nissan Altima, expect comfy seats inside its roomy cabin. This cushioned ride is also sought-after by those looking for ultimate comfort during a long ride. This does not include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a standard, though.

Design & Style

The 2021 Sonata seats up to five people in its airy cabin. It has seats that are supportive and well-cushioned, with ample room for adults both on the front and rear rows. Behind the seats is a 16 cubic feet of trunk capacity, just enough to carry the luggage of a family for a weekend getaway. The Sonata is a picture of class, combining attractive and modern styling with its soft-touch surfaces.

When it comes to the 2021 Altima, you will find cushiony seats to seat five as well. This is large enough to carry passengers of all shapes, ages, and sizes. It used quality materials for its cabin construction, but it is not as attractive as that of the Sonata. There are also plenty of hard plastics in the cabin, which has given it lesser points in terms of design and style.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Sonata is equipped with a perfectly working infotainment interface. This has an eight-inch touch screen, which is used to access all other functions including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. It also has a Bluetooth interface, and a USB port. It has a long list of advanced safety features, including rearview camera, driver drowsiness monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane tracing assist, lane keep assist, forward automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic high-beam headlights.

The 2021 Altima, meanwhile, is equipped with the NissanConnect infotainment system. This is used together with its six speakers, satellite radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and voice recognition. The ride has safety features like automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and rearview camera.


The 2021 Sonata has two engine versions. One is the four-cylinder engine which carries up to 191 horsepower. The other one is a turbo-four which puts off 180 horsepower. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Altima, on the other hand, has a base four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine under its hood. This gives it a power for 188 horses. The all-wheel drive results in 182 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata is a handsome car with all the soft touches inside. It has a quick accelerating engine too. The long list of tech features is impressive as well. This definitely beats the Nissan Altima in all aspects.
