There doesn't seem to be any significant changes from '12 to '13. Unless you want a stick shift, that option has been discontinued so if you're looking for an MT you'll have to grab a '12 if you can find one.

GLS - now have heated seats and fog lights added to the Popular equipment package. No more MT option.

SE - Standard with front heated seats

Limited - back to a traditional sunroof as standard equipment and the panoramic roof is now an option in the premium package.

Should have bought a 2010 - all the features my Sonota L with Nav seem to have returned

But I never uderstand why NA manufacturers (including Hyundai, BMW, VW etc) do not offer REAR foglights which are standard in the EU.

Don't understand how the Optima SX has many more features that aren't offered on the Sonata Limited

- Power passenger seat
- Cooled front seats
- Power folding mirrors
- HID headlights
- LED DRLs
- LED taillights
