2015 Hyundai Sonata Build-Your-Own Feature Goes Live
Buyers of the redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata can now configure this midsize sedan to their liking before it goes on sale in the next few weeks, thanks to the build-your-own tool on the Hyundai website. As we already know, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata actually starts $300 cheaper than its predecessor, as it costs $21,960 with destination for the base Sonata SE model.
Despite the reduced price, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata SE includes a fair bit of standard equipment, including alloy wheels, Bluetooth, a USB jack, LED daytime running lights, and satellite radio. A $1200 Popular Equipment package adds features like automatic headlights, a power driver's seat, a 5-inch touchscreen audio system, a backup camera, and Hyundai's BlueLink telematics system.
Next up in the 2015 Sonata lineup is the $23,986 Sonata Sport trim, which adds larger alloy wheels, a different front grille and fascia, a power driver's seat, a 5-inch touchscreen audio system, a backup camera, heated front seats, automatic headlights, and the aforementioned BlueLink system. Two option packages are available: the $1700 Premium Package that adds a blind spot detection system, pushbutton start and keyless entry, leather sport seats, automatic climate control; and the Tech Package which gains navigation, a premium audio system, and a 4.2-inch LCD display in the gauge cluster. Since the Tech Package requires the Premium Package, a loaded up Sonata Sport costs $27,435 with destination.
The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited is the luxury-oriented trim, and costs $27,335 with destination. It has a blind spot monitor, pushbutton start, heated leather seats front and rear, automatic climate control, and a power driver's and passenger's seat as standard. On top of this, buyers can add the $3500 Tech Package which includes a panoramic sunroof, HID headlights, navigation, an Infinity premium audio system, a heated steering wheel, and cooled front seats with a memory function. Beyond this, the Ultimate Package (which is bundled with the Tech Package) costs $1550 and adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, parking sensors, and an electronic parking brake. A Sonata Limited with all of this kit comes to $32,385 with destination, a pretty remarkable value considering the equipment level.
While the SE and Limited trims come only with a 2.4-liter, 185-hp four-cylinder engine, the Sonata Sport is also available in a Sport 2.0T trim level with a 245-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This model starts at $29,385 with destination and features more standard equipment than the 2.4L Sonata Sport like LED taillights, HID headlights, pushbutton start, blind spot detection, automatic climate control, and a few sporty trim finishers for interior pieces like the pedals, shift knob, and steering wheel. The only upgrade for this model is the all-in Ultimate Package which costs $4950. It adds a panoramic sunroof, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, navigation, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, and an Infinity premium audio system. This means that the most expensive 2015 Hyundai Sonata costs $34,335 with destination.
