  • Pricing announced for all-new 2012 Accent and 2012 Sonata, Tucson and Elantra
  • Sonata Limited sees significant price hike
  • Tucson prices rise modestly

Hyundai announced higher pricing for 2012 Accent, Sonata, Tucson and Elantra models with one notable exception - the all-new base 4-door Accent GLS benefits from a price reduction of $1150 compared with the 2011 model. On the opposite end of the price and equipment spectrum, top-of-the-line Sonata Limited models see an $1150 price hike but get a panoramic sunroof in exchange for the extra dough. Both Tucson and Elantra receive only modest price increases and benefit from new fuel-saving measures.

The redesigned 2012 Accent is available in 4-door GLS trim like its 2011 model year predecessor, or in a new 5-door configuration for GLS and SE models. The 3-door version is gone. Powered by a new "Gamma" direct-injection engine, all Accent models are available with either an automatic or manual transmission, both six-speed. The manual GLS is the bargain of the bunch at $12,545. The GLS automatic is up $600 over the comparable outgoing 2011 Accent, now priced at $15,295. It includes standard air conditioning, power windows and mirrors and an upgraded sound system.

Those upgrades also come standard on the 5-door GS, which includes keyless entry and body-colored mirrors and door handles, too. Pricing for the manual transmission GS is $14,695. The GS automatic is $1200 more and includes cruise control.

The top Accent SE starts at $15,895, with sporty and convenient upgrades outside and inside. It includes alloy wheels, fog lamps, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth hands-free, and sport-tuned steering. The automatic carries a $1000 premium.

Prices for both the Elantra sedan and Tucson crossover are up marginally, and both models get Hyundai's Active ECO program for better fuel economy. The Elantra is available in two trim levels, from the $15,345 GLS manual to the $20,595 Limited automatic. Across the board, Elantra pricing is up $400 from 2011.

Other than the Active ECO system, the Tucson does not receive much in the way of upgrades for 2012, but neither does it see a substantial price hike. The Tucson is available in three trim levels - GL, GLS and Limited - and with two transmission and two drive choices, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Pricing for the range-topping all-wheel drive Limited jumps just $100 to $26,495. The lineup starts with the $19,145 front-wheel drive manual GL. Its $250 price hike over 2011 is close to the average for Tucson models.

The Sonata sees its price jump significantly for 2012, but also adds BlueLink, Hyundai's telematics system, as standard equipment. The system provides communications functions like crash notification, roadside assistance and remote lock/unlock. Sonata GLS and SE model prices jump $600 from 2011, the base 2012 GLS starting at $20,245. Limited models now include a panoramic sunroof for an $1150 premium over 2011 prices. The top-spec Sonata Limited turbo now lists for $28,195.

Prices for everything from consumables like bread to durable machines like cars are persistently on the rise. Fortunately, tough competition among automakers for new-car buyers means something extra is typically offered in return.

What it means to you: Hyundai's 2012 bargains include the base Accent and the Tucson Limited. Most prices are up modestly, but more features and better economy are offered. Sonata Limited pricing jumps by over $1000.
