2014 Hyundai Sonata Overview

Tamara Warren
Automotive Editor - February 26, 2014

Hyundai Sonata has transformed the midsize sedan market by introducing a novel concept: aggressive styling. Sonata challenged the gatekeepers that have traditionally won customers by playing it safe. The Sonata is for drivers who don’t want another run-of-the-mill Toyota Camry or Honda Accord in their garage.

What's New for 2014

The Sonata beefs up options in its various packages this year, and offers slight tweaks like a revised grille and a quieter cabin. Other new standard features include HID headlights, LED taillights, a modified rear fascia, Driver Selectable Steering Mode, Vehicle Stability Management and tire-specific tire pressure monitors. Most of the big changes occur in the higher-end trim models.

Choosing your Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata utilizes a six-speed automatic transmission mated to one of two engines:

  • The 190 horsepower 2.-4 liter four-cylinder engine achieves 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
  • The turbocharged 2-liter engine kicks out 274 horsepower while earning an EPA estimate of 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

2014 Hyundai Sonata GLS


The base GLS starts at $21,450, and comes with the basic equipment a buyer would expect in a midsize family sedan—air conditioning, Bluetooth and heated side mirrors are standard. The Popular Equipment Package adds enhancements to the baseline model like a rearview camera and a driver’s blind spot mirror. You can't have certain options like leather upholstery or a moonroof, however, and the GLS comes only with the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter engine.

CarsDirect Tip

If you automatically opt for a reliable Accord or Camry, the Sonata is worth a second-test drive, if you’re looking to stand out with a reliable competitor. We'd choose an SE with the turbocharged engine as the best pick—adding options to a Limited can easily push its price past $30,000.
