Hyundai revealed a new and refreshed version of its mid-size sedan Sonata for 2014. The car boasts a $155 price increase (starting at $21,350) over the last year model, but it comes with a long list of new features, not all of them visible at first glance.
2014 Hyundai Sonata does benefit from a revised design, but it may not be obvious at first. It gets refined grille designs, new 17- and 18-inch wheels, HID Xenon headlights, LED taillights and a new rear fascia insert. They make it look a bit more luxurious and elegant.
More important changes have happened in the chassis department, as the Sonata now comes as standard with Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Tire-specific Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
The new SE 2.0 liter Turbo models also get a sport-tuned exhaust and full-leather steering wheel, while Blind Spot Detection System remains optional. Standard navigation on SE and Limited model has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, but you can upgrade to an eight-inch screen. The range-topping Limited comes with Supervision cluster with color LCD screen, auto climate control, and ventilated driver seat.
The engine lineup for the 2014 Hyundai Sonata remains unchanged, with a GDI 2.4-liter four-cylinder developing 190 horsepower, and a 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI engine with an impressive 274 horsepower.
