Hyundai has given its Sonata some major updates for the 2014 model year, adding features to help its sedan deliver new levels of refinement, safety and technology.

A long list of updates include a refined front grille design, new 17- and 18-inch wheels, HID Xenon headlights, LED taillights and a new rear bumper insert. A plethora of features are also now standard on all trim models including: Driver Selectable Steering Mode, Vehicle Stability Management, TPMS and a sport-tuned exhaust system. Other refinements on the 2014 Sonata include improved carpet for a quieter interior, additional foam in the A and B pillars and an additional dynamic damper for reduced road noise.

Inside, a full-leather steering wheel is now available on the SE and Limited models while the navigation system gets upgraded with an eight-inch screen. The driver seat also comes ventilated as standard on the Limited model while a carbon fiber trim is now standard on the SE model.

The 2014 Sonata is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine with 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. It gets an EPA-estimated 24-mpg city, 35-mpg highway rating. Also available is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. That model gets 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata sees a slight price increase of $155 for the 2014 model year, despite all the updates the Korean automaker has given it. The 2014 Sonata GLA starts from $22,145 including delivery.
