The 2024 Hyundai Sonata lineup loses the base SE model, making the $28,615 SEL the cheapest entry point to the Sonata family.
The new all-wheel-drive version of the SEL brings that price up to $30,015.
Along with new pricing, the Sonata gets a refresh for 2024 that includes new visuals for the exterior and big changes to the interior.
Hyundai is giving the 2024 Sonata a mid-cycle refresh that includes noticeable changes to the front and rear bumpers, headlights and taillights, and some more drastic changes for the interior. The manufacturer just revealed pricing for the 2024 lineup, which trims the fat and reduces the available trims, including the removal of the base SE.
That makes the now $28,615 SEL trim the cheapest offering in the Sonata lineup, marking a $2400 increase in starting price compared to 2023. Opting for the Sonata's new all-wheel-drive setup adds $1500 to that price. As things stand now, AWD is only available on cars with the base 192-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder—the rest come only with front-wheel drive.
Stepping up to the Sonata N Line's 290-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission brings the price up to $36,065, a $475 increase over last year. The last N Line Sonata we tested impressed us with a 5.0-second run to 60 mph. It adds quad exhaust outlets, a larger front grille, red accent stitching, and 19-inch wheels as opposed to the standard 17-inch wheels.
Switching over the SEL hybrid brings the starting price to $31,915. The hybrid model's more upscale Limited trim brings that starting price up to $38,315, making this the most expensive Sonata in the range. The Limited now comes with a power trunklid, which is one of the 2024 model's notable new features; a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also now standard across the entire lineup.
According to Hyundai, the 2024 Sonata will start reaching dealerships early next year, with hybrid models expected a bit later within the first quarter of 2024.
