The Hyundai Sonata N Line Night Edition might be a bit of a long name to remember but it’s a car that’s definitely aiming to get your attention. For the 2022 model year, the guys from Hyundai decided that the Sonata needs a special edition and the N Line-equipped version was deemed just right to be transformed into the Night Edition. A bit tricky?
Don’t worry, we’re here to explain. The Sonata was already available with the N Line package. That’s the equivalent of a sportier, meaner looking version of the sedan, along the lines of what you’ve seen at BMW with its M Sport package or the AMG Line at Mercedes-Benz. Basically, you get some more aggressive styling on the car. From there, the designers created a special, blacked-out package, for the Sonata and called it Night Edition.
What you actually get is a couple of carbon fiber bits (it’s actually CFRP) and some more dark chrome bits here and there. The rear end gets a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, the 19” wheels are now featuring a special design and are done in matte black. The wheels are also sporting N logo center caps made of CFRP while the brake calipers are painted red and can be easily observed behind them.
Other changes include dark chrome badges up front and in the back, matte black mirror covers and matte black door handle covers, both of them being switchable to white in case you decide to go for the Quartz White finish. That’s right, the Night Edition can, for some reason, be had in Quartz White, in which case everything stays the same, apart from the mirror covers and door handles, as we mentioned. If you don’t want your Sonata to look like a Dalmatian, you can stick with Phantom Black.
The car is now on sale and only 1,000 units will be made. The pricing for it was set at $34,750 without the handing and destination fee of $1,025.
