2013 Hyundai Sonata: What's Changed

2013 Hyundai Sonata

For the new model year, Hyundai adds more available features to Sonata's base trim level. Most prices increase by $100 to $150 or more per trim for 2013.

All 2013 Sonatas now come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission; the manual-transmission GLS is no longer available. Without the manual transmission, all Sonatas now get 24/35 mpg city/highway.

The Popular Equipment Package on the GLS now costs $825 and includes features like fog lights and heated seats, for a total cost of $21,720.

The SE trim now comes standard with heated front seats, and the Limited trim no longer comes with a panoramic sunroof. Instead, it gets a regular sunroof. The Limited trim is $600 less expensive this year because of the change. If you still want a panoramic sunroof, it's been added to a $2,900 Limited Premium Package. Ultimately, a 2013 Hyundai Sonata tops out at $31,270, which is just $100 more than last year's model.

The 2013 Hyundai Sonata is already on sale. Continue reading below for more pricing details.

Hyundai is really great on designing cars at the same time price regulation. It is bit expensive than the model before but it really gives more features and its quality is really impressive. Thank you for this new information.

I am looking forward to the LE Turbo version. Some driven reviews will be great as I am planning to buy to or three of those.
