What Can You Expect from the 2017 Sonata?
The Hyundai Sonata has a reputation for delivering everything that people want when they get a midsize family sedan. The question is, though, did it manage to do it again with the 2017 model? Check out what you can expect if you pick up the 2017 Hyundai Sonata. Then, you will know if this is the right fit for your family.
When shopping for a vehicle, you want to get something a little extra, and the Sonata delivers with two class-exclusive features. First, the available hands-free smart trunk makes shopping easier than ever before. This feature has the ability to sense the Proximity Key. If you stand behind the vehicle for more than three seconds with the Proximity Key in your hand, pocket, or purse, it will automatically open up the trunk so you can throw your bags in and head home.
It also has class-exclusive rear side sunshades. These manual sunshades help kids stay comfortable in the backseat. Happy kids make for happy parents, so this feature is a must.
Loads of Space
A cramped family is an unhappy family. Fortunately, the Sonata has 122.4 cubic feet of total interior volume. That’s more than any other car in the midsize sedan class, according to the EPA. You will feel like you’re in a large sedan when you’re inside, but it still drives like a midsize sedan. That’s the best of both worlds.
Fun and Easy to Drive
With the help of the 2.0T twin-scroll turbo engine, you won’t have to worry about engine lag. It gets up and goes when you put the pedal to the metal. It’s even more fun to drive, thanks to Drive Mode Select. Choose the type of driving mode you want when you’re out there, and then the Sonata will adjust the transmission response, engine response, and steering effort.
Driving the family around can take its toll at the pump. You have to fill up for all of those trips to soccer practice, school plays, and family vacations. The Sonata will minimize the money you spend. The SE gets 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. You can get even better mileage by going with the Eco. It gets 28 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.
If you think the Sonata looks great on paper, wait until you see it in person. Stop by Ray Brandt Hyundai in Harvey, Louisiana, and see the vehicle with your own eyes. Then, get the keys and take it for a spin. It will be love at first drive when you take off in the Sonata.
