What’s New?

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata rearranges a few standard and optional features but overall remains unchanged.

Exterior Features

The exterior design for the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is something buyers have come to appreciate. The new design aimed to lower the drag effect, thus making the Hyundai Sonata an extremely fuel efficient car that is better than a lot of other 2017 vehicles in its class.

The 2017 Sonata comes with a lighter bumper to increase fuel efficiency. The vehicle has 17″ alloy wheels as standard and dual exhaust tips. There is a unique grille, with chrome molding.

Interior Features

The 2017 Sonata interior has been entirely redesigned. With the improvement in the technology, there are changes to the entertainment system; a larger 7″ LCD touchscreen and leather seats with the Limited 2.0T trim too. The feel is much sportier than the 2016 model.

The 2017 model has a cleaner dashboard, and the seats are more spacious offering comfort for 5 full-sized adults. There are sunshades integrated into the door panels that can be used when needed, and hidden when they’re not. There is heated front and rear seating also available.

Technology

Apple CarPlay is integrated to allow you use your iPhone while driving and gives you access to everything through the touch screen display or alternatively, you can ask Siri to help. You can make calls, get directions, receive and send text messages and listen to your favorite music too all in a way which allows you to remain focused on the road. It is very easy, just plug in your phone and go.

Engine/ Fuel Efficiency

Those who require high levels of driving efficiency will definitely love the Sonata Eco. Its 1.6L turbocharged engine produces power through an enhanced automatic seven-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The EPA rating is 28/36 MPG City/Highway and 31 MPG combined – pretty good for its class.

The standard engine is a 2.4L 185 horse powered DOHC 16 valve. The fuel efficiency of the SE trim is still pretty good at 25/36 city/ highway and at 29 mpg combined.

Safety

The Automatic Emergency Braking system uses both a radar sensor and camera. If a crash is looming and the driver doesn’t react, the system deploys the Automatic Emergency Braking. This system can also apply full brake force reducing power from 5o to 5 mph.

These available radar-based system assists detect with blind spot detection and offer both a visual as well as an audible alert to assist in keeping you aware as you drive.
