If you're in-market for an all-new mid-size sedan, you may want to hold your horses.

That's because Hyundai will be dropping the 2015 Sonata and it will actually be less expensive than the outgoing product that's currently in showrooms.

Sure, you'll be able to negotiate with your salesperson more aggressively with the current-generation vehicle, but you may want to see what the 2015 is all about. Typically, you want the latest and greatest unless you're wary of first model year cars.

Sonata Delivers Class-Above Features and Improved Driving Dynamics


FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Hyundai Motor America announced pricing for the all-new 2015 Sonata begins at $21,150. From the base model 2015 Sonata 2.4-liter to a new range-topping Sport 2.0T Ultimate that offers class-above features such as hands-free Smart Trunk, Smart Cruise Control with stop/start capability, panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel, the 2015 Sonata appeals to a wider range of customers than ever before.

"A strong value proposition has always been a cornerstone for Hyundai and the 2015 Sonata continues that tradition, with the base model priced $300 less than the model it replaces," said Bob Pradzinski, vice president of national sales, Hyundai Motor America. "Our customers are also asking for advanced safety and technology features, so we broadened the 2015 Sonata model line to include more premium comfort and convenience features on the upper trim levels. The mid-size sedan segment is incredibly competitive and we made a conscious effort to deliver a world-class mid-size sedan at an outstanding value."

The all-new 2015 Sonata offers a more refined look through the new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration and harshness and advanced safety and convenience features. Sonata truly democratizes the premium design and convenient technology of the Genesis sedan for the mid-size sedan class. Production of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is underway at the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama plant in Montgomery, Ala. and the first retail units should begin arriving at dealerships by the end of the month.

2015 Sonata comes standard with seven airbags, including a new driver's knee airbag designed to help prevent the driver from sliding down the seat in a collision, which allows the other restraint systems to be more effective. Hyundai engineers also implemented many active safety technologies for the 2015 Sonata to assist drivers and help prevent accidents. No longer reserved for luxury cars, advanced safety technologies such as Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a Lane Departure Warning System are all available in this mid-size sedan.

2015 Sonata SE, Sport and Limited models are powered by a revised 2.4-liter Theta II GDI four-cylinder engine that makes 185 horsepower and 178 lb. ft. of torque. New for 2015 is an Electronic Intake Continuously Variable Valve Timing (E-CVVT) system that improves performance in low temperatures and reduces emissions.

A revised 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI, also featuring E-CVVT, powers Sonata Sport 2.0T models. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is optimized for lower-RPM drivability and it produces 245 horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque. The twin-scroll turbocharger features a smaller turbine and compressor wheels, which provide better responsiveness and more torque in the low and mid RPM range.
