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.
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a mid-size sedan powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and interior-permanent magnet synchronous motor (using power delivered by the 270V lithium polymer battery) to produce 199 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque. FWD paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission enables fuel economy to fall within an EPA estimated range of 36 mpg city to 40 mpg highway. Features include 17-inch wheels, tilt-and-slide sunroof, proximity key with push button start, navigation, leather seats, heated seats, HD radio, rearview camera, and automatic climate control. Safety is comprised of advanced airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), traction control system (TCS), anti-lock braking (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), brake assist (BA), tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The Sonata Hybrid is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.
