2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid

When you buy a car, you want it to have it all. It’s natural–you want space, great gas mileage, fantastic tech integration. Just like the musical harmony it’s named for, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid weaves different parts together to create a beautiful, cohesive, stylish whole.

First, let’s talk about the hybrid system. The battery on the Sonata Hybrid has the largest battery system capacity among mid-sized plug-in hybrid sedans. That means that it can go farther in All-Electric mode than any others in its class. The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid has an All-Electric Range of 27 miles, more than enough for the average commute. When you get into hybrid mode though, the Sonata has a range of up to 590 miles! That’s more than twice the distance of the average summer road trip. The best part about the hybrid system, other than saving on gas, is that the Sonata’s Plug-in Hybrid battery is compact enough that it doesn’t use up all your storage space.

The compact battery system not only gives you best in class capacity and All-Electric Range, it also gives you best in class passenger and cargo volume. The back seats fold in a 60/40 split to give you full access to all available storage. When you need the back seat for kids or friends, the Sonata has an available back window sunshade to help everyone more comfortable. The panoramic power sunroof makes the class leading space feel even bigger as it extends over both front and rear rows.

In a hybrid vehicle, why have all your technology under the hood? On the 8″ touch screen, you will have access your phone and its apps on the go so that you can play your downloaded audio books, podcasts, playlists, and more. With Apple Car Play and Android Auto equipped, you can use either your Maps app or the built in navigation system. You can accept and make calls, send and receive texts, and ask Siri who let the dogs out, all through the voice command system. The MyHyundai app with BlueLink connects your Sonata and your personal technology even more, allowing you to turn your car on and off, remotely unlock your car, and receive monthly maintenance reports to let you know how you car is functioning and what needs repair, if anything.

Sonata Plug-in Hybrid Technology

The technology just keeps on coming in the safety department. The Sonata has a Forward Collision Warning system to alert you when a crash might be coming so you can take action. Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist will check your surroundings for you and let you know whether or not it is safe to change lanes. If you’re drifting out of your lane and don’t mean to, the Lane Departure Warning will make you aware so you can make that adjustment. When you couple all this with the Sonata Hybrid’s 5-star safety rating, and America’s Best Warranty, you can drive in confidence.

  • Streamlined Console

    A touchscreen interface and easy to use buttons anchor the easy-to-use streamlined console in the Sonata Hybrid.

  • Power Driver’s Seat

    Customize your driving experience and comfort level with the power driver’s seat.

  • Infinity Premium Audio System

    This option takes your audio experience up a notice, with the expertise of Infinity behind it.

  • LED Taillights

    Embrace a unique and distinctive style with the Sonata’s new LED taillights.

Conclusion

The Sonata has the whole package. A hybrid with best in class passenger and cargo volume, best in class electric range, and technology that permeates the entirety of the vehicle. The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid is the comfortable, stylish, tech-savvy car of the future–and it’s ready for you to take it home.

2017 Hyundai Sonata

With its well-rounded supply of tech features and best-in-class cabin volume, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata knows what you want and delivers the goods at an affordable price. If you tend to travel with a cabin full of passengers, this is the mid-size sedan for you.

When you think of the 2017 Hyundai Sonata, the first thing that probably comes to mind is its best-in-class cabin volume. But, more than that, the Sonata’s layout treats you to generous legroom and supportive seating. In back, passengers have enough elbowroom to text with both hands without any annoying arm clashes. The trunk is also a bigger than most others in this segment, with 16.3 cubic feet for your gym bag, weekend luggage, and golf clubs. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats offer a quick and easy way to expand cargo space, which comes in handy when you’ve got to load longer items, like IKEA boxes.

Your Sonata does an excellent job of keeping you connected. The 7-inch touchscreen is the perfect size, making it easy to select the feature you need without distracting you from the road ahead. However, tech junkies will want to upgrade to the 8-inch version for crisp graphics and increased app functionality. This system also includes a navigation system that displays neatly labeled maps and clean-cut turn-by-turn directions, getting you wherever you need to go in a jiffy. Add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the mix, and you’ve got the complete package. This smartphone technology puts your favorite apps on the Sonata’s touchscreen, so you can interact with them with minimal distractions.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata may offer a low MSRP, but it never shirks on safety. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named this model a Top Safety Pick for 2017. In government crash tests, the Sonata earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. This mid-size sedan offers a lot more than shining crash test scores. Its Blue Link emergency telematics system is your mobile safety net, offering roadside assistance and automatic crash response, so help is never far away. The Sonata’s suite of driver aids – think blind-spot monitoring – do an excellent job of monitoring your surroundings for safety. The forward collision system comes with an emergency braking feature, mitigating – or even circumventing – damages in the face of a crash.

The last thing you want to do is spend an exorbitant amount at the pump. With the Sonata, that’ll never be an issue. It balances power with fuel economy, so you’ll get up to speed in a timely fashion and earn up to 28 city/36 highway mpg.

For tech-savvy travelers, infotainment gear is of the utmost importance. If you count yourself among the smartphone obsessed, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is the crossover for you.

2017 Hyundai Accent

Subcompacts are the best of several worlds–a smart, reliable, comfortable car that will get you where you want to go but will also make your budget happy as well. Among the subcompacts, the 2017 Hyundai Accent is one of the best. Stylish, comfortable, and economical, the Accent is the total package.

Subcompact cars are the most likely vehicles to give you the best gas mileage without opting for a hybrid or an electric. The Accent boasts 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. That’s more highway miles per gallon than either the Toyota Yaris or the Honda Fit. So when you’re commuting to work, you can know that your car is taking a smaller chunk of your paycheck than some of the other vehicles you may be looking at.

The Hyundai Accent comes in either a sedan or hatchback option, which gives you style options that you may not get with other models. Not only does the Accent give you better highway mpg, it also sports best in class 5-door cargo space in the hatchback. The back row can be folded down in a 60/40 split to give you adjustable options for multiple combinations of seating and storage. The Accent hatchback comes with a spacious 21.2 cubic feet of cargo space, more than any other subcompact. If you carry people and their stuff, and don’t want to feel like you’re in a clown car, the Accent has what you need.

The 2017 Hyundai Accent has great integrated technology for a car in this price range. Steering wheel controls give you the ability to change radio stations, set your cruise control, and activate your voice command feature without taking your hands off the wheel, which is important if you’re driving. Bluetooth capability lets you make calls and answer calls hands free. One impressive perk is the Accent’s three free months of Sirius XM satellite radio–that’s a feature that normally comes on much larger, much more expensive vehicles. USB and AUX ports also make it easy to play your own digital music from your phone, Mp3 player or flash drive. Though the Accent is a budget-friendly car, the tech doesn’t feel dumbed down.

2017 Honda Fit

With so many great things to say about the 2017 Honda Fit, it’s almost tough to know where to start. It certainly bests competitors in terms of passenger and cargo space. With more legroom than the Honda Accord, this subcompact hatchback is a great pick for urban socialites and families who want to save more than they spend on a new car. When you flip down the rear seats, you’ll create as much max cargo space as in some small crossover SUVs: 52.7 cubic feet. Although you wouldn’t normally think to bring your subcompact hatchback on an IKEA run, now you certainly can.

More than roominess, the Fit is known for its excellent fuel economy.

It’s paired with a continuously variable transmission for optimal fuel economy, earning an impressive 25 city/33 highway mpg. The standard all-wheel drive gives you greater control over slick roads. If you require greater power, test-drive the Outback 3.6R, which boosts engine output to 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque.

The Toyota Highlander competes well in this category. Its base engine is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder that makes 185 horses and 184 pound-feet of torque. For enhanced performance, check out the 3.5-liter V6 engine, which produces 270 horses and 248 pound-feet of torque. Choose between standard front- and optional all-wheel drive for optimal traction.

Passenger Comfort

Here the 2016 Subaru Outback has the edge. Its clean-cut interior is both practical and supremely comfortable. Up front, you’ll enjoy generous padding and support during your daily ride. The rear seat is big on head- and legroom. Behind the rear seats, you can fill 35.5 cubic feet of cargo space with your favorite Sunday fun day gear. Use the fold-down levers for easy access to 73.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo space.

Of course, the Toyota Highlander puts up a good fight. In addition to its roomy front and middle rows, the Highlander adds a third row that’s great for kids. From behind the wheel, you’ll enjoy modern ergonomics and easy access to important controls. Niceties like leather upholstery set a stylish tone.
