2021 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2021 Volkswagen Passat

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata has a list of features that makes it stand out as a midsize car. It promises a good mileage for its users, while also assuring that there is a reliable engine under its hood. It also has a user-friendly infotainment system, matched with a long list of safety features. Some amenities are shuffled between trim levels.

For the 2021 Volkswagen Passat, you will find a well-cushioned ride which also offers plenty of cargo space for your belongings. The SEL trim is out of its list, but it added leather-wrapped steering wheel and adaptive cruise control as a standard.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata has plenty of space for cargo, which starts from 16 cubic feet of trunk capacity. This is perfect to carry your suitcases for a weekend trip with the ones you love. The cabin is a picture of elegance, with modern, attractive, and soft-touch materials inside. There is plenty of headroom and legroom, as well as bolstered seats to make the ride comfortable.

Seating up to five people, the 2021 Passat is also one ride that oozes with comfort for all its passengers. One thing that you will take note of is its great outward visibility for the driver. The cabin has some of the best materials, but this one is not as modern-looking as that of the Sonata. Overall, it appears good, yet it needs to exert more effort to make it look more modern throughout.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Sonata uses an eight-inch touch screen for its infotainment interface. This one is easy-to-read and has a quick response to user inputs. Aside from integrating Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it is also equipped with a Bluetooth interface, and a USB port. Safety wise, there are plenty of features that work reliably, among them are forward automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane tracing assist, and driver drowsiness monitoring.

The 2021 Volkswagen Passat, meanwhile, uses a 6.3-inch touch screen for its MIB infotainment system. This is praised for its user-friendly and reliable interface. It is also good news that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard for the ride. Safety equipment included in the ride are automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross traffic alert. The list falls short with those offered by the Sonata.

Performance

The 2021 Sonata gives you two engine options that starts with the four-cylinder option which can generate up to 191 horsepower. The turbo-four is another, and this one yields up to 180 horsepower. The Passat’s turbo-four only reaches up to a maximum output of 174 horsepower, making it lag behind the Sonata in terms of performance.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata knows how to impress car buyers out there. With a sturdy physique, a cozy interior, a long list of features, and awesome engines, it definitely defeats the Passat in all aspects.
