Shopping for a 2014 Hyundai Sonata Near Metro Detroit? Read This First…
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata is the latest in Hyundai’s line of mid-size sedans, giving yet another vehicle for Metro Detroit area drivers to choose from in one of the most crowded segments of the auto market. The Sonata itself has been revamped significantly, and the Hyundai brand has become much more reliable in recent years, giving many old standbys of the segment a run for their money. The entry-level Sonata GLS comes with standard features like power accessories, a trip computer, air conditioning, and cruise control. Available upgrades include two different touchscreen options, a rearview camera system, and an infotainment system.
If you liked the sound of those available upgrades, wouldn’t it be nice if you could get them without upgrading? Turns out that you can, if you opt for the 2014 Honda Accord LX, that is. Honda has reinvented the standard features package and includes many modern amenities—features that drivers are coming to expect—as standard at their basic LX trim level. You’ll find the incomparable i-MID touchscreen infotainment system with an 8-inch screen, a built-in rearview camera for easier parallel parking and reversing, Pandora internet radio connectivity, and more. All of it standard.
Take a look at what Honda’s definition of “standard” looks like versus Hyundai’s by comparing the standard equipment for the 2014 Accord LX and 2014 Sonata GLS:
