Usually, when a new vehicle goes on sale it is more expensive that the model it replaces but it appears that Hyundai didn’t follow this path with the 2015 Sonata because its new sedan is actually cheaper than its predecessor. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata starts at $21,150, which makes it $300 cheaper than the 2014MY Sonata.
The base model is powered by the 2.4-liter Theta II FDI four-cylinder engine that generates 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. The same engine is found on the SE, Limited and Sport models. All models carry a 6-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic.
The 2015 Sonata Sport is priced from $23,175, while the 2015 Sonata Limited costs $26,525. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T starts at $28,575. This model uses a 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI engine that delivers 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. All the prices don't include the $810 freight charges.
Hyundai offers the 2015 Sonata as standard with seven airbags, including the new driver’s knee airbag. Moreover, there are plenty of advanced safety technologies available, such as Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a Lane Departure Warning System.
