From Thrift To Sport: Choosing Between The 2023 Hyundai Sonata SEL & N-Line Trims

The Hyundai Sonata offers an exciting mix of value, superb build quality, high-tech features, power, and impressive fuel economy, all wrapped up with a distinctively styled exterior.

2023 Hyundai Sonata lease deals are characterized by several trim levels and powertrain options, making it hard for some shoppers to narrow down their choices. If you are wondering what top features you get on the base engine models compared to the powerful N-Line trim, stay glued.


The 2023 Sonata comes in various gas-powered and hybrid trims. The SEL comes one step above the entry-level SE model. Unlike higher trims that use a 180-hp turbo-4 with 195 lb-ft, the Sonata SEL is motivated by the standard engine, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that churns out 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The SEL trim offers solid value proposition and a slew of enhanced features at an affordable price. From premium cloth seating surfaces to heated front seats and a larger infotainment system, here are the Sonata SEL’s highlights.

  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Gloss black front grille
  • Sport front and rear bumper fascia
  • Twin Tip Single exhaust
  • 8-way power driver seat with power lumbar
  • Heated front seats
  • Rear center armrest with dual cupholders
  • 25-inch touchscreen display with multiple device connections (up to two devices)
  • SiriusXM
  • Onboard Navigation and traffic flow, including incident data via HD Radio
  • Dynamic voice recognition
  • Dual automatic temperature control instrument cluster
  • Proximity Key entry with push-button start
  • A 4.2-inch Instrument cluster

The Sonata SEL can also be fitted with a hybrid powertrain that pairs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor to generate a combined 192 horses,


N-Line is the Sonata’s mid-range, and it stands out from the rest of the lineup with sporty styling elements and a gustier engine. The N-Line’s engine is a powerful 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that pairs with an 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission and churns out 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Here is a breakdown of the unique features of the performance-enhanced 2023 Sonata N-Line.

  • Rack-mounted Motor-Driven Power Steering (R-MDPS)
  • 19-inch alloy wheels
  • N unique front and rear fascia
  • Rear spoiler
  • Twin Tip Dual exhaust
  • N unique sport front seats with microfiber inserts
  • Leather-wrapped N unique sport steering wheel
  • Bose premium audio with 12 speakers
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • 64-color Ambient lighting
  • Highway Driving Assist (HDA)

Unlike the SEL trim, the optional hybrid is not available on the Sonata N-Line.

The Sonata SEL and N-Line trims offer great value and appeal to different categories of drivers. The SEL will suit those looking for a frugal, low-price sedan, while the N-Line caters to shoppers seeking driving thrills.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
