hyundai is one of the few automakers still focusing on releasing jaw-dropping sedans at a cheaper price than its competitors. the company has announced that pricing for the refreshed 2020 sonata will start at $24,330. that's $470 cheaper than the base-model 2020 honda accord, and $920 cheaper than the base-model 2020 toyota camry.
that entry price is for the se model, while the sel will start at $26,430. the top-level, fully-loaded limited model will start at $34,230, more expensive than the sporty camry trd but below the top-end camry xse v-6, which costs $35,955. the sonata's se and sel trim levels will be powered by a new, more powerful 191-hp 2.5-liter inline-four, and the sel plus and limited will be powered by a 180-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four.
the entry-level sonata se comes standard with several new features including an 8.0-inch lcd screen, forward automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. the sel, one step up, adds 17-inch wheels, a 4.2-inch lcd instrument cluster, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert and collision avoidance.
hyundai says the entry-level sonatas will arrive at dealers later this month, and the higher-end models, including the limited, will arrive in the next few months.
