The revamped 2018 Hyundai Sonata will go on sale this summer beginning at $22,935, increase of $150 from the current 2017 Sonata SE.
Sonata SE includes a host of basic functions. Noteworthy ones consist of a seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert, a six-speaker stereo, and cloth seats. The base SE trim includes a 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine combined to a six-speed automatic.
After the base model, there is the Sonata Eco, that makes use of a seven-speed dual-clutch and 1.6-liter turbo-four engine creating 178 hp. Rates for this model start at $23,535. Next up is the SEL trim, which includes a hands-free trunk, chrome exterior door handles, 10-way power motorist seat with power adjustable lumbar, and heated front seats. This automobile features the exact same 2.4-liter engine as the base model and is priced from $24,585.
Sport models include a dual exhaust, power tilt and slide sunroof, sport seats, aluminum pedals, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and other functions for a starting cost of $26,085. Limited models, which begin at $28,285, bring along leather seating surfaces and other updated interior materials. Both of these designs are paired with the 2.4-liter engine.
Purchasers who desire the upgraded 2.0-liter turbo engine with 245 hp have two trims to pick from: the Sport 2.0 T and the Limited 2.0 T. These models are the most costly in the Sonata lineup, beginning at $28,485 and $33,335 respectively. Both include a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
