The 2017 Hyundai Sonata offers buyers no less than four engines. That’s pretty impressive for a midsize sedan, and what it ultimately means is that you are sure to find a 2017 Sonata that will meet your needs, regardless of what those may be.
Redesigned a few years ago, the new Sonata features an impressive combination of modern design and features, tons of safety equipment, a beautiful and functional cockpit, and fuel-efficient engines that pack a lot of punch. There are two gasoline engines in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata lineup along with two hybrid engines. Let’s start with the gasoline variants.
Two fuel-efficient engines in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata lineup
Offered starting at $24,540, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. This engine happens to be one of the most powerful in the midsize sedan segment, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fuel-efficient. Indeed, the new Sonata’s base engine’s fuel economy rating is 9.4 liters per 100 kilometers in the city, and 7.0 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway, making it ideal for buyers looking for a fuel-efficient midsize sedan without having to sacrifice power.
Speaking of power, let’s have a look at the 2017 Hyundai Sonara 2.0T. Powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the 2.0T puts 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque under your right foot. Better yet, you can adjust the driving behavior of the Sonata 2.0T, along with every other 2017 Sonata model, thanks to a system which allows you to choose different driving modes (Comfort, Sport, or Eco).
Even with its added power, the turbocharged engine won’t punish owners at the pump thanks to an average fuel economy rating of 10.4 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.4 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata also offered with a hybrid engine
As you can see, it’s easy to combine performance with fuel economy when looking at the 2017 Hyundai Sonata lineup. Of course, buyers who only want to reduce their fuel consumption bill will turn to one of the two Hyundai Sonata hybrid models offered in 2017.
The first is powered by a 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor and a 38 kWh battery, and averages less than 6.0 liters per 100 kilometers in combined fuel consumption (city/highway).
Next is the 2017 Hyundai Sonata PHEV plug-in hybrid which is powered by the same engine, but has a larger 50 kWh battery which provides 43 kilometers of electric-only range. That means that most buyers will be able to get to work all week without using a drop of fuel by charging their battery at night.
