2015 Hyundai Sonata Starts at $21,960


Since its debut, Hyundai's midsize sedan has always been a good value; the redesigned-for-2015 model is no exception. When the new Sonata goes on sale later this month, the base SE version will start at $21,960 including destination, $300 less than the outgoing base GLS model.

2015 Hyundai Sonata: First Look

Along with brawnier styling for 2015, Hyundai added new standard equipment like LED daytime running lights and a driver-knee airbag, and some more options, including a host of safety features, an automatically opening trunk lid and Apple's CarPlay entertainment interface.

SE, Sport and Limited models are powered by a version of last year's 2.4-liter four-cylinder, making 185-horsepower this year; Sport 2.0T trims use a revised version of the previous model's 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A six-speed automatic is again the sole transmission. Both engines make less power than their predecessors but have improved responsiveness at lower engine rpm, Hyundai says.

Midlevel Sport models start at $23,985, Limiteds at $27,335 and top-line Sport 2.0T models at $29,385 (all prices include an $810 destination fee). Click here to see how the new Sonata measures up against the most affordable sedans in the midsize class.

Hyundai says production of the 2015 Sonata is already underway in its Alabama plant and that shoppers can expect to see the new sedan at dealerships before month's end.
