Hyundai revealed the extensively updated 2015 Sonata at the New York Auto Show, and now it has released pricing and option packaging for the mid-size sedan (non-Hybrid trim levels) before it hits dealers this summer. Complementing the restyled looks of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai gave the sedan a new starting MSRP of $21,150, which is a $300 drop compared to the 2014 model year.
Replacing the base GLS trim level, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata SE now stands as the entry-level trim, and it comes with standard features such as LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels and seven airbags. The SE offers the Popular Equipment Option Package for $1,200, which includes a 10-way power driver’s seat, backup camera, Blue Link, and a temporary spare tire.
The all-new Sport trim level brings a sportier appearance to the 2015 Hyundai Sonata with 17-inch wheels, a more aggressive ground effects kit, and a chrome exhaust tip, and it’s priced at $23,175. The Sonata Sport can be optioned up with the $1,700 Premium Package adding nifty features like the new hands-free Smart Trunk, blind spot detection, lane change assist, sport seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual-zone climate control. On top of this package, there’s also the $1,750 Technology Package adding navigation, SiriusXM Travel Link, Blue Link, and an updated gauge cluster with a 4.2-inch LCD information display and electroluminescent gauges.

For more luxury, the Sonata Limited starts at $26,525 (a $425 price drop from 2014), and it comes with leather seats, heated front and rear seats, wood grain interior trim, rear window sunshades, LED taillights, and an upgraded seven-speaker Dimension audio system. The $3,500 Technology Package delivers a panoramic sunroof, HID headlights, navigation, upgraded Infinity audio, ventilated front seats, and all of the other features included in the Sport Technology Package. The Ultimate Package costs $1,550 on top of the Technology Package, and it brings Smart Cruise Control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, rear park assist, and automatic high-beam headlights.
All of the above trim levels include the 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder, but if you still want the peppier 245-hp 2.0-liter turbo engine, it’s only offered on the Sonata Sport 2.0T starting $28,575. This trim comes with sport suspension, 18-inch wheels, paddle shifters, rear diffuser, quad exhaust outlets, and a flat-bottom steering wheel (among many other features). Topping out at $33,525, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T Ultimate is as about as loaded as you can get a mid-size sedan these days, and it combines all of the features found in the Sonata Limited Technology and Ultimate packages.
