Targeted at cars like the Acura TSX and Lexus IS250, the new Buick Verano will undercut rivals by many thousands of dollars, starting at just $23,470 – including the $885 destination charge. By comparison, the Acura starts at just over $30K, while the IS begins at nearly $35K. Plus, Buick is touting that its car has more passenger and cargo room than either of those two, despite the fact that it’s underpinnings are those of the Chevrolet Cruze.
“When we first showed the Sonata Turbo earlier this year, we promised more horsepower than our V6 competitors, with great four-cylinder fuel economy, all for under $25,000,” said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. “With the introduction of the Sonata 2.0T, we’re delivering on all three of those commitments, with an MSRP of just $24,145 for an incredibly well-equipped Sonata 2.0T SE.
The SE trim includes 18-inch wheels, a “sport-tuned” suspension and steering, push button ignition with proximity entry, leather and cloth seats with a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, fog lights, dual exhaust, stability control, dual climate control, power windows, locks and mirrors, heated mirrors, an Active ECO system, integrated Bluetooth, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel and more.
Limited models add a sunroof, leather seats, heated front seats, an upgraded audio system and interior trim plus other items for $27,045.
Both models come with Hyundai’s first-ever direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine making 274-hp and 269 ft-lbs of torque, that gets 33-mph highway and 22-mpg in the city.
Check back soon for AutoGuide’s first drive of the all new Sonata 2.0T.
