2014 model year changes
Hyundai has given the Sonata a significant refresh for 2014. On the outside, the Sonata gets a set of minor enhancements, like a new grille design that flows smoothly into the rest of the design and better matches that of other recent new Hyundai models. Optional HID headlamps and LED taillights complete the updated look, along with new alloy wheel designs. Inside, the Sonata gets more sound-deadening material throughout the model line. A driver's blind-spot mirror is newly optional on GLS models, while a blind-spot detection system is a new option on SE models and standard on the Limited. Inside, SE and Limited trims of the 2014 Sonata get a newly optional infotainment and navigation system with an 8-inch touch screen, while the standard system on those models is a 4.3-inch touch screen system with rearview camera display and HD Radio. All versions of the 2014 Hyundai Sonata get a new Driver Selectable Steering Mode, with three different levels of boost, while SE versions now include a sport exhaust system. SE versions also get a new body-colored spoiler, while both SE and Limited versions now include a leather steering wheel and fully automatic climate control. The Sonata Hybrid also returns for 2014, similarly equipped to last year's Sonata GLS and includes revisions to the powertrain to further improve fuel economy.

Special features for 2014
The Hyundai Sonata stands out among mid-size sedans for offering one of the most generous sets of standard features. While most of its competition-- which includes the likes of the Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Toyota Camry, Nissan Maxima and Honda Accord --have been fully redesigned in the past couple of years, the Sonata is fully on par with those models. In usable interior space, cargo space, and ride comfort, the Sonata is a step ahead of many of its mid-size rivals. The Sonata has one of the best turning circles in its class, Hyundai points out; and for those who place a greater weight on fuel efficiency, there's a Sonata Hybrid that achieves EPA ratings of 38 mpg city, 40 highway.
Updated with enhanced bumpers, the 2014 Hyundai Sonata is a mid-size sedan with seating for five. The Sonata offers drivers the option two 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines that produce 200 hp/186 lb-ft of torque (PZEV) and 198 hp/184 lb-ft of torque (ULEV) or an optional 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. FWD is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission for an EPA estimated range of 22 mpg city to 35 mpg highway. Features include 18-inch wheels, tilt-and-slide sunroof, proximity key with push button start, automatic climate control, navigation system, rear view camera, heated front seats, and hands-free phone capability. Safety is comprised of electronic stability control, traction control system, anti-lock braking, electronic brake force distribution, brake assist, tire pressure monitoring, advanced dual front airbags, side impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags. The Sonata is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.
