    2012 Sonata vs 2013 Sonata

    Post by Albie23 on 5/9/2012, 8:25 am

    Does anyone know if there are any changes to the body of the car or is it exactly the same?

    For the most part the same. Some minor changes to the tail lights and side mirror blinkers.

    The T comes with heated seats. Really wanted those but didnt want to wait until they will drop the price.

    Yea I really wanted heated seats but didn't wanna pay an extra 3 grand to go from my SE turbo to the Limited Turbo. Plus, I actually liked the way the cloth and leather seats looked over the leather! Even though I covered them with decent seat covers anyway, I still like them Very Happy

    I would like to take a SE Turbo for a spin. The salesman at the dealer pointed out the the SE has a sport suspension but i wanted the Limited because of the features. I am completely satisfied with the suspension in my limited, and i drive it hard. I wonder how much different the SE feels.

    I had a loaner 2.4L Limited the other day and I could tell a difference in the handling. On quick turns or jerks, it was more sluggish with it movements. I was driving around 45 mph and started weaving on purpose to see ho wit handled and I will stick to my SE. It's not the greatest but it felt better than the limited. I do wish the SE had the Pano roof though and the infinity sound system.
