2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid at Gates Hyundai of Richmond
At a time when sedans are in decline, the Hyundai Sonata bucks the trend. Sales have been up in Lexington, KY and across America. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid certainly pulls its weight, thanks to amenities like a lifetime warranty on its Lithium Ion polymer battery, best-in-class interior space, and a 10 year/10,000 mile powertrain warranty. Gates Hyundai of Richmond is proud to offer the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Here are a few reasons why.
2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Details
Unlike its gas-powered sibling, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid only comes in two trim levels. There's a base SE trim and a deluxe Limited trim. The powertrain consists of a 2.0 liter Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder engine that runs in parallel with a Blue Drive® HEV system; it delivers 193 net horsepower. The whole arrangement is rounded out by a six-speed automatic transmission instead of the CVT that's found in so many other hybrid vehicles. That's a good thing, because the six-speed offers a more natural feel to your drive than a CVT, and doesn't suffer the persistent whine that's a common complaint with CVT-equipped cars.
2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Safety and Special Features*
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid earns a five-star NHTSA safety rating and IIHS Top Safety Pick (the latter requires the optional Ultimate Package).The upgraded Hyundai Display Audio infotainment system works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You can also leverage the optional Blue Link® telematics system to control Amazon's Alexa home assistant and do even more with your Hyundai Sonata Hybrid without even leaving your couch.
One of the things we like best about the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is that, excellent fuel economy aside,** it doesn't drive like a typical hybrid. The six-speed automatic transmission features SHIFTRONIC® manual gear selection. Furthermore, Drive Mode Select (which tweaks throttle and transmission performance) further enhances your driving experience.
