The Hyundai Sonata continues to offer a strong lineup in 2017 with three efficient powertrain options, great technology, and newly available dynamic bending light.
The 2017 Sonata comes standard with Vehicle Stability Management with Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System, seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, four-wheel disc brakes and ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.
An four-cylinder lineup continues to power the Sonata in 2017. The base, naturally-aspirated engine, the 2.4-liter Theta II GDI, produces 185 peak horsepower and 178 lb. ft. of torque.
The Sonata Eco comes with a 1.6-liter, turbocharged Gamma engine and delivers 178 peak horsepower and 195 lb. ft. of torque. It mates to an efficient seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The range-topping 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI generates 245 peak horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque. Both Theta engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2017 Sonata is available with many comfort and convenience features: hands-free smart trunk, 8-inch navigation display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, electronic parking brake, and Blue Link telematics system.
Standard features include drive mode select (change the engine and transmission settings between eco, normal, and sport, choose between normal and sport steering feel, all at the push of a button), remote keyless entry with alarm, body color heated exterior power mirrors, steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise control, and Bluetooth hands-free phone system. Hyundai replaced the color Venetian Red Pearl with a more vibrant Scarlet Red.
