2018 Feature Missing

I traded my 2015 Limited (Ultimate) Sonata for a 2018 Limited (Ultimate) Sonata. I'm quite pleased with the vehicle to this point but have a single question for the other 2018 Sonata owners...

Who builds a vehicle, with a $32,000 MSRP, that does not have a glove box light? Does anyone else have one?

There is a location for it, and a grey light cover lens is inserted where the clear lens would, but no light.

lighters were 50 cents each. They stopped including those nearly 12 years ago or more just to save that per car.
corners must be cut to make the price point.

Actually, smoking has become less popular and there were laws on smoking and driving while having minors in cars in the early 90's I believe.I have the ultimate pkg sonata and getting a 2018 with out those features is a step back for me.

I have both a 2015 Sport 2.0T Limited, and a 2018 2.0T Limited.

As for the missing door over the USB and Power Plugs, I think the reason is because the 2018 has Wireless Cell Phone Charging. I guess they think you don't want to take the time to flip the door open or closed. My 2015 door stays open all the time.

The 2018 Moonroof has to be cheaper than the 2015 Pano Roof.
My wife loves the Pano Roof. I think it's a waste. I prefer the Moonroof.

LOVE the 8 Speed Transmission on the 2018. Very smooth shifts. Never "hunts" for correct gear. If I did not watch the tachometer, I would not even know it was an 8 Speed.
Great Transmission. Hyundai engineers deserve an award for designing this GREAT Transmission. (In case you don't know, the 8 Speed only comes with the 2.0T, not with the 2.4 engine.)

I believe they got rid of pano roof due to many cracking complains and unsuccessful fixes dealers tried.
Interesting though, watching some youtube Arab videos, it looks like they get pano roof and cup holders cover for 2018 2.0T???
Since I am aiming for 2018 2.0T I might ask you few questions over PM not to burden this discussion...
What might be interesting for wider population:
1. how is that 'smart' drive mode perform? If you care to use it at all
2. what is the lowest speed 8th gear can be engaged? I hope you use paddle shifters...

Took my 2015 sonata ultimate to trade in at several dealers, and no one will take the car.I will have to pay off the last remaining payment to get into a new vehichle and send the car back to the leasing company and get hit with the damages they call excessive.I ordered a 2018 sx premium/tech pkg also known as the sxl in white with aubergine interior for $351 a month no money down at all,zero,nada zilch. The car comes with all the features I want that the 2018 sonata does not have and then some like power folding mirrors and a 630 watt harmon kardon system to name a few.The residual for the sonata is so low that it does not even make sense to buy it out right. as I will always be upside down.

I looked cause I bought some LEDs and no light in my 18 SEL glove box. The welcome light, or whatever its called in the center of the map lights isnt there like in our 15. That I really dont mind though. It doesnt bother me, but it doesnt do anything for me either.

I am glad to hear that the ceiling welcome light is gone. It never turns off on our '15 Sport and bugs the heck out of me when driving on the highway at night. I would have expected it to dim like the rest of the interior lights, but no.
