It is subjective. I cannot personally speak on the N Line, I do not doubt that it is well tuned and fun to drive speed, but during a launch it seems to kinda fall on its face. Those are reasonable grounds to dislike a car.The review is so biased and so far off the mark that it is a joke. It didn't matter how good the car was or wasn't... Jack was going to give it that shitty review either way. It's not just two guys on the internet either.. they have almost half a million subscribers. When you not only own one, but read (and agree with) almost every publication saying things like this about it; it's pretty hard to not think "wtf"..
"On the whole, the Sonata N Line is truly excellent. In fact, the result of all the work Hyundai and its N Line team did is so impressive that anything less than a BMW M3 or Audi RS5 would have the devil's own job of shaking you loose on a twisty bit of back road. You can't say that about a Camry TRD." - Motor Trend
"The Sonata N Line technically competes with cars like the Toyota Camry TRD and turbocharged Honda Accord and Mazda6, but it's way better to drive. You're getting a car that's closer to Acura TLX and BMW 3 Series levels of enjoyment, and those cars cost a whole lot more. No, the N Line isn't perfect, but it punches way above its weight and has all of the standard Sonata's great infotainment and safety tech, to boot. This Hyundai might not immediately come to mind as a solid sport sedan, but trust me, you should drive one. It might surprise you." - CNET
"In terms of the suspension's behavior, it's easier to talk about what it doesn't do than what it does. Run it hard through the curves and there's no wallow, no float, no skipping around on mid-corner bumps. The steering is lovely, well-weighted, and precise. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata N-Line turns-in smoothly and stays planted when put to the test, exhibiting excellent stability, and that's all the more remarkable when you consider how comfortable and unflappable the ride is.... Now that I've driven a Hyundai sedan that can legitimately run with BMWs, I think I really have seen everything." - Automobile Mag
I understand being upset by it, they were not friendly to the N Line whatsoever. I can't agree with how they were ragging on it.
