I'd have to look at one of the 2012 or newer ones to tell you for certain, but many models do required the brake pedal to be depressed and/or the wheels to not be turning to enable a shift into reverse.

I think this may be the case with the 2014. When I did try it, the car
was so stuck I couldn't really even tell what was going on....I also
didn't turn off the traction control at first before I realized I had
to. Plenty of snow coming my way so I will test again....but I am
pretty sure there is no way to go back and forth between reverse and
drive and no lock release like on my Elantra GT(also 2014). Not good
Seems like most cars today have an interlock of some sort to prevent
accidental shifting into reverse or park. Best you can hope for is to
get the car rocking by using the gas pedal off and on in one gear or
Hope you have good tires too. The OEM on my Sonata were good on dry
roads but terrible in snow, even light snow. Put a set of Nokian WR3
on the next winter and it made a huge difference.
I think the tires are OK, but in reality I only have it for a couple
of months and it really is more my wife's car. I drive a 2014 Elantra
GT mostly, and it does have the little unlocking thing for the trans,
as did my last three Elantras...07SE, 05GT, and 03GT. Oh well, I had a
rental of the Accent and was so impressed that I decided to buy the
new one instead of another Elantra. The car is a perfect fit for my
wife, it runs generally very well. And it's a pretty red, and of
course that's all that matters ;-)
