2017 Hyundai Sonata Performance

In addition to providing you and your passengers with a wealth of technology and safety features, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata gives Hilton Head Island drivers access to a trio of performance specs. Commute into Beaufort or head down to Savannah, GA with an engine that's fun to drive and easy on the wallet; discover the performance features and engine specs that set the Sonata apart from its competitors below.


Three Powerful Engines

First of all, the new Sonata gives you a choice between three powerful and efficient engines, two with a turbocharger for improved performance and increased fuel economy:

  • A 2.4L 4-Cylinder engine is standard, paired with a six-speed automatic and delivering up to 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Sonata Eco takes advantage of a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder with 178 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque, paired to a 7-speed EcoShift DCT.
  • The Sonata 2.0T models feature a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder paired to a six-speed automatic and capable of up to 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Stellar Transmission

Engine advancements can only go so far, and the Sonata supplements all this power with two of the market's best transmission systems to ensure that your ride remains as smooth as possible, no matter your speed:

  • Standard on the Sonata is a 6-speed automatic transmission with a final drive ratio of 2.885.
  • The Sonata Eco's 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission is engineered for improved efficiency and is only found on the Eco trim, featuring a final drive ratio of 4.294 / 3.174.

Drive Mode Select

One of the most exciting new systems in the Hyundai Sonata, Drive Mode Select, is able to adjust the engine's performance and the transmission system's response depending on your preferences as driver. You'll be able to choose between three different modes-Eco, Normal, and Sport-allowing you to optimize traction and increase control in whatever conditions you find yourself facing while optimizing up efficiency as well.

High Rates of Efficiency

When it comes to efficiency, many drivers have a hard time believing you can have your cake and eat it too, yet you've seen the 2017 Hyundai Sonata performance specs. Here's what you can expect from the fuel economy:

  • The base engine of the Sonata leaves many competitors looking outdated, earning an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city.
  • Drivers looking for even more savings will love the Eco's boosted fuel economy with 36 highway and 28 city mpg.
  • Despite the incredible power of the 2.0L turbo engine, the Sonata 2.0T is efficient enough to justify the regular joyride with an EPA-estimated 31 highway and 22 city mpg.
