The base model SE is gone from the 2024 Hyundai Sonata range. The $28,615 SEL is now the least expensive way to join the Sonata family.
The price goes up to $30,015 for the new SEL with all-wheel drive.
Along with new prices, the Sonata gets a makeover for 2024 that includes big changes to the inside and new looks for the outside.
Hyundai is giving the 2024 Sonata a mid-cycle update that includes changes to the headlights, taillights, and front and rear bumpers. The interior will also see some more significant changes. The company just released prices for the 2024 range, which cuts down on the number of trims and options, including getting rid of the base SE.
The SEL trim, which now costs $28,615, is the least expensive Sonata model. This is a $2,400 increase in starting price from 2023. If you choose the Sonata’s new all-wheel-drive system, that price goes up by $1500. At the moment, only cars with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 192 horsepower can have all-wheel drive. All the other cars only have front-wheel drive.
If you choose the Sonata N Line with its 290-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission, the price goes up to $36,065, which is $475 more than last year. We were pleased by the N Line Sonata’s 5.0-second run to 60 mph. It comes with 19-inch wheels instead of the normal 17-inch wheels and has four exhaust outlets. The front grille is also bigger.
If you choose the SEL hybrid, the price goes up to $31,915. The more expensive Limited trim on the hybrid model makes it the most expensive Sonata in the line. It costs $38,315 to buy. One of the most noticeable changes for the 2024 model year is that the Limited now has a power trunklid. All models now come with a 12.3-inch navigation screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto built in.
