Hyundai Prices Sharp New Sonata for US Market; Starts at $21,500

The all-new redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata has received its official pricing information for the US market, where the base 2.4-liter powered model kicks off at $21,500, not including destination (an extra $810). With it, Hyundai has decided to drop the price by around $300, compared to the model it replaces.

For the base price, you get seven standard airbags, including one for the driver’s knees, a total of 184hp and a revised CVT transmission, aside from the really basic stuff. Optionally, the new Sonata can be fitted with Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a Lane Departure Warning System.

The pricing structure for the model is very simple; there are four trims named SE, Sport, Limited and Sport 2.0T, the latter getting the more powerful engine available, a two-liter turbo with 240 hp.

It has been optimized since the previous gen, and now its “twin-scroll turbocharger features a smaller turbine and compressor wheels, which provide better responsiveness and more torque in the low and mid RPM range.”

The most you can pay for one of these is $33,525, as per the table posted below.
