Hyundai Adds “+” Editions To 2018 Sonata, Starts From $23,700

Hyundai has implemented a few mid-year updates to the Sonata range, claiming that, on most models, the new features lower or maintain the current prices.

Differentiated by the addition of the ‘+’ symbol, the most affordable model is the Sonata SEL+ that starts from $23,700.

Thanks to the introduction of the sport mesh grille and front end, along with wireless phone charging capability, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and others, this grade has an added value of more than $500, according to Hyundai.

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.
