If you are shopping for a new Sonata, the “Hyundai Labor Day Sales Promotion” could be just the ticket.

2013 Hyundai Sonata (more expensive Limited shown) - $20,895 to start is just the sticker price. With Labor Day incentives, much less.
The fluidic sculpture derived Sonata design first made available to the public 3 years ago continues to be a standout amongst its peers. Those include its competitors that have yet to release their brand new 2013 products and those that have.
In addition, to the class leading interior and exterior design the Sonata is rated per the EPA as a large sedan with only the D-segment Accord also achieving that title. The rest of the class are standard mid-size offerings ranging from small to adequate.
Another key to the Sonata’s success is its modern direct injected 200 HP 2.4L GDI as standard equipment. No other manufacturer offers the powerful of an engine in their base lineup.

2013 Sonata Invoice and MSRP after incentives

The steering wheel audio controls are standard and I believe the sliding center console armrest, illuminated vanity mirror with extensions and illuminated ignition are also. Chris will hopefully check in as soon as he is off work to verify.
In addition, the 2013 Sonata arrives with BlueLink standard. It is not available with the 2013 Elantra Sedan.
With no cash incentive on the 2013 Elantra with mats, the invoice plus the dealerships profit ($250 over?) on top of holdback and sales incentives they receive, your price not including TTL is ~ $18,908 USD
If you qualify for the total $2,000 USD incentives on the 2013 Sonata with mats, the invoice plus the dealerships profit ($250 over?) on top of holdback and sales incentives they receive, your price not including TTL is ~ $19,886 USD
While the loss of the 29/40 mpgUS city/highway to a 24/35 mpgUS city/highway rating is regrettable, the 2013 Sonata GLS including BlueLink and a power driver’s seat is much more car for just $1,000 USD more than the Elantra GLS not quite as well equipped! If you are shopping new Sonata's this weekend, pricing is as attractive as I have ever seen it.
There are also College graduate and military incentives of $400 and $500 respectively on top of the Elantra/Sonata pricing posted above for those that qualify.
