The same is claimed about the Sport+, which can be ordered from $24,800, or $25,400 with the Tech Package. This version benefits from extra driving assistance equipment such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist and Smart Cruise Control with stop/start function.
Next in the lineup comes the Sonata Limited with Tech Package, priced from $27,400. It adds all of the aforementioned features of the lesser grades, which represents a value of more than $1,000 compared to the current trim level.
As for the Sonata Limited with Ultimate Package+, it can be had from $26,433, or $600 less than before, and adds the same exterior updates mentioned above plus a panoramic sunroof.
These models are powered by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder GDI engine, whereas the top-of-the-line Sonata Limited+ uses the turbocharged 2.0-liter unit and starts from $31,900.
