The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Receives a Major Overhaul
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata marks the midpoint of the generation with some major revisions. Visually the car looks even more stylish thanks to some exterior and interior changes, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Performance has been upgraded, there are two new touchscreen options, and plenty of other new features. This is a great time to get behind the wheel of a Sonata at our Hyundai dealership serving Highland.
Performance and Fuel Economy
A 2.4L four-cylinder engine is standard for the 2014 Sonata and capable of 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque (this increases to 192 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque with the dual-exhaust SE trim). These models can rock 0 to 60 mph in eight seconds, a fast time for a base midsize. They’re also fuel efficient and capable of up to 35 mpg highway.
Drivers who want more power can nab a 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged to 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. These can do 0 to 60 mph in a quick 6.7 seconds and still get up to 34 mpg highway.
The Sonata comes in three different trim levels. Even the base GLS trim is quite competitive with features like satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod connectivity, and the Hyundai BlueLink system. Other features available include a 4.3-inch or 8-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, and leather upholstery.
For years families have chosen the Sonata as their vehicle. This year’s 2014 model is equally suitable for families with an impressive list of safety ratings. The NHTSA awarded the Sonata an overall five-star score for crash protection. Meanwhile the IIHS gave the Sonata top scores in their side, roof, and moderate-overlap front crash tests.
Standard safety features for the Sonata include full-length side curtain airbags, antilock disc brakes, and active front head restraints. There are even more features available such as a rearview camera and blind spot detection.
