2015 Hyundai Sonata Gets New Look, Lower Price

May 23, 2014

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.
