The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is worth a look if you want to combine good fuel efficiency with a comfortable and quiet cab, lots of trunk room, and a smooth ride. The comfortable cabin seats are very spacious for the class. The Sonata Hybrid also features an easy-to-use infotainment system and has more trunk space than most other medium-sized hybrid cars.
2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Design
The redesigned 2017 Sonata took a step back from the bold and dramatic look of its predecessor. Exuberance has been supplanted by a look that can be described as conservative, mature and subtle. Others may consider it as generic, maybe even invisible. Hybrid versions and plug-in hybrids have some appearance changes, most subtle and made only to improve aerodynamics. The most notable is a revised front version with a wider horizontal bar grid and different projectors. New tail lamp graphics, “Eco-spoke” aerodynamic alloy wheels and aerodynamic threshold covers complete the list.

At the front, you and the front passenger will be comfortable on well-cushioned seats. The passengers at the rear will be particularly comfortable, since the Hybrid Sonata has one of the class’s more spacious rear seats. The rear seat is a little more limited than the legroom, so that large passengers can be better at the front. You can also consider the Toyota Camry Hybrid because it has a lot of height in the rear.
2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Engine
The group is powering a 154-hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder electric engine with a 38-kilowatt (51-hp) electric motor between the engine and an adaptation of Hyundai’s 6-speed automatic transmission. The maximum combined power is 193 hp. The energy is stored in a 1.6 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery, located under the floor of the boot where the spare tire would otherwise sit. The engine provides extra torque, helps recharge the battery at braking and feeds the sedan under light loads without the engine.
With its largest 9.8 kwh battery, the hybrid Plug-In version weighs 3,800 pounds, about 270 pounds more than a comparable hybrid and 500 pounds more than a 2.4-liter base sonata. In a first opportunity of first drive, moderate acceleration and displacement with occasionally fast traffic, we averaged 41 mpg in both a hybrid and hybrid plug-in
The Sonata Hybrid SE base is priced from $ 26,000 to $ 38,600
