2015 Hyundai Sonata trim level changes?

I'm about to go car shopping, and I've been following the 2015 Sonata for some time. All of the sudden, the 2015 Sport 2.0T with Ultimate package has disappeared. Now you have:

- Sport 2.0T. No packages.
- Limited 2.0T. No packages. A lower MSRP than the Sport 2.0T with Ultimate, but it looks like you lose the paddles shifters and the D wheel.

Here's the funny thing, though - the rest of Hyundai's web site still shows the old trim levels (including the trim level comparison page). My local dealers don't seem to know what's going on either, since their online listings for Sport 2.0T actually show a window sticker for Limited 2.0T.

TrueCar obviously doesn't know this has happened, or Edmunds, or probably most banks, which could pose financing problems if they don't acknowledge the existence of the car you're trying to buy.

Does anybody know what is going on here? I can see them trying to "simplify" things by doing this, but rearranging the product line right before the holidays smacks of a money grab by trying to bypass all of the car buying sites.

    I am having the same problem! I am very disappointed no one has answered this. Here is the question I just posted in another section of this forum. Did you ever get clarification elsewhere?

    "I just put a deposit on a '15 Sonata 2.0T Sport LIMITED! I went to three dealers today and all 2.0T Sports that were fully-loaded [presumably with the Ultimate package] had both Sport and LIMITED badges on them. Now I am really confused.

    I know there is a 2.0T Sport and a 2.0T Limited, but I want a 2.0T Sport with the Ultimate package and was told this is it. The cars I am talking about all had MSRPs around $34,700, so the 2.0T Sport Limited is priced and equipped the same as the 2.0T Sport with Ultimate package, but before I pick up and sign the final paperwork, I want to be sure I am getting the car I think I am getting. All the window stickers and invoices say Sonata Limited 2.0T, but the cars do have the Sport badge and the carbon-fiber looking trim on the dash. What do guys think?"
