2017 Toyota Corolla


It's difficult to deny that the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is one of the season's most enticing vehicles.

Still having doubts? No problem - just compare the Sonata to one of its competitors, the 2017 Toyota Corolla, to see how it excels.

Engine Power

To start, this is one powerfully efficiency car:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata - The Sonata Hybrid can run on either a 2.4L engine that produces 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque or a hybrid engine that combines an electric motor with a 38 kW (51 hp) battery with a 2.0L 4-Cylinder (154 hp) engine, generating 193 hp in total. At the same time, the Hybrid Sonata is equipped with 6-speed transmission, ensuring a combined 32 mpg (in the case of the gas engine) and 42 mpg (in the case of the hybrid engine).
  • The 2017 Toyota Corolla - In lower-level trims, the Corolla sports a lackluster 1.8L 4-Cylinder engine that presents you with 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, but even in upper-level trims you get nothing more than a 1.8L 4-Cylinder DOHC engine that delivers 140 hp and 126 lb-ft.


Likewise, this car is absolutely packed with smart technologies:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata - You're going to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which make it possible for you to connect your smartphone directly to your car and enable you to access all your own music, your own maps, and your own apps. The Sonata also gives you an Infinity AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 nine-speaker system with a subwoofer and a 400-watt external amplifier.
  • The 2017 Toyota Corolla - The Corolla will provide Entune Premium Audio and Bluetooth Technology, but it doesn't give you the quality speaker audio system.


In addition to its top-notch performance and tech, this car is also equipped with a range of reliable safety devices:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata - For example, the Sonata is equipped with a Rearview Camera, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, Dynamic Bending Lights, and Rear Parking Sensors. And that's just the beginning.
  • The 2017 Toyota Corolla - Sure, the Corolla comes with eight standard airbags, a Backup Camera, and a Star Safety System that gives you Vehicle Stability Control and Pre-Collision Technology. However, it does not provide the Sonata's Dynamic Bending Lights.
