Hyundai has lowered the sticker price of its Sonata by $300 for the 2015 model-year in a mid-cycle refresh of the mid-size sedan that's expected to arrive at dealerships by the end of May, the automaker has announced.

Hyundai's 2015 Sonata mid-size sedan starts at $21,150 for the SE base model. The top-level Sport 2.0T model starts at $28,575.

Hyundai is offering the refreshed 2015 Sonata in three trim levels, including the SE, Sport, Limited, and Sport 2.0T. The Sport model starts at $23,175, while the Limited model starts at $26,525. The prices don't include an $810 freight charge.

The SE, Sport, and Limited models are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while the Sport 2.0T includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Both models get a six-speed automatic transmission.

Hyundai has made available several active safety technologies to the 2015 Sonata such as forward collision warning, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alerts, and a land departure system.

The 2015 Sonata was revealed at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.
