REVIEW: 2017 Hyundai Sonata


The Hyundai Sonata has quietly made its way to the top of rankings among midsize sedans, as drivers have noticed that it’s roomier, has better features, and costs much less when compared to other cars in its class. Some would call it an underdog, but we just call it an excellent value. Drivers in Brockton who are looking for a stylish and practical need search no further than the 2017 Hyundai Sonata. Read on for our full review: 

Keeping your family safe is anything but a luxury, so the Sonata comes standard with rearview camera, blind-spot mirror, electronic brake assist, traction and stability control, a 7-airbag system. Additionally, you have the option to add blind-spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, rear park assist, and automatic headlights. In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Sonata earned a best-possible 5-Star Overall Rating. 

The Sonata comes with almost every feature you can imagine, so talk to your McGovern Hyundai dealer about those that are most important to you, but know that even the base model is loaded. Each model of the Sonata has an infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen display, smartphone integration, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, and power locks and windows. Options for upgrades include a 10-speaker Infinity sound system, smart cruise control with stop/start technology, panoramic sunroof, and hands-free trunk release. 

Styling and Interior
The Sonata features no-nonsense styling, with simple and elegant chrome lines sweeping from the headlights to the flanks and a body that’s reminiscent of a classic luxury vehicle. Its space is also deluxe, with the most interior volume of any other vehicle in its class. Even the back seat is roomy enough for adults, and the plush, supportive seating makes the perfect setting for a road trip. The 2017 Sonata also leads its class in cargo space, with 16.3 cubic feet, and even more when you fold down the rear seats.  

There are a few options for powertrain on the 2017 Sonata, so you may want to take a few for a test drive to see which suits your driving style. Here’s what you get to choose from: 
A base engine that’s a 2.4-lited inline-4 with 185 horsepower; a 2-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 245 horsepower on the Sport model; or the Eco trim with a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-4 and 177 horsepower. There are also two hybrid options: the Sonata Hybrid has a 2-liter inline-4 with an electric motor that has 154 horsepower and gets 39 MPG highway and 45 MPG city; or the Plug-In Hybrid mode, which has the same engine and a range of 27 miles on electricity only.  

Starting at $21,600 MSRP
