Evolved over seven generations of progress, the 2017 Sonata continues to define the intermediate sedan segment. The innovative design makes a bold statement of confidence and refinement, while the intuitively-designed cabin is equipped with an extensive list of advanced safety technologies. Simply put, the 2017 Sonata is the answer to the question, “What will Hyundai think of next?”
Seeing is believing
Driving dynamics in harmony
Noise, Vibration and Harshness
Every element of the Sonata’s rigid chassis is designed to keep outside noises where they belong. Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) remain low whether the car is sitting at idle or travelling at speed. An improved dual lower-arm rear-suspension design even works to minimize vibrations transmitted through the vehicle’s structure.
2.4L GDI 4-Cylinder Engine: 185 HP & 178 lb-ft Torque
The standard 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) 4-cylinder engine is mated to a smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission for performance and fuel economy in perfect balance.
2.0L Turbo GDI 4-Cylinder Engine: 245 HP & 260 lb-ft Torque
For even greater performance, the Sonata comes available with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine incorporating GDI and D-CVVT technology. Developing 245 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque from 1,350 to 4,500 rpm, the Sonata 2.0T offers a powerful response across its operating range.
Advanced High Strength Steel
The Sonata’s body was constructed using advanced high-strength steel (51%) forged in Hyundai’s own steel mill for exceptional stiffness. The rigid structure serves to deliver exceptional driving dynamics and enhanced occupant protection.
The Sonata’s fully independent suspension has been calibrated to provide an ideal blend of handling composure and ride comfort. Advanced Motor Driven Power Steering systems ensure the steering is accurate and well-weighted, transmitting the feedback you need while filtering out unwanted responses to road imperfections.
Technology that makes life better
High Beam Assist
With the available High Beam Assist system, a front camera continuously monitors traffic situations to automatically turn high beams on or off.
The available Apple CarPlay™ adds to the 2017 Sonata's advanced technology. This much-anticipated innovation integrates the features of your iPhone® and select apps through the available 8” touch-screen navigation system. Apple CarPlay™ support is also included on 2017 Sonata models – there is no separate charge for it and no software update is necessary.
Hyundai leads the way by supporting smartphone technology that makes driving and staying in touch with your world simple and seamless. This available feature lets you use your voice to do a variety of useful tasks from listening to and dictating text messages to finding locations and helping you navigate to your destination.
Standard Bluetooth® technology, with steering wheel-mounted controls, includes phonebook transfer to give you hands-free access to your phone with convenient voice-recognition control
Standard 5.0” Colour Touch-Screen Display with Rearview Camera
A standard 5.0” color touch-screen display lets you stream music from your smartphone, talk to family and friends with the Bluetooth® hands-free phone system and tackle tight parking spaces through the rear-view camera.
