Power and Performance

First thing's first: engine power and efficiency. Simply put, the Sonata Hybrid is one of the most impressively efficient cars on the market these days:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - Where to begin? Well, first of all, the Sonata Hybrid is powered by a hybrid engine that combines an electric motor with a 38 kW (51 hp) battery with a 2.0L 4-Cylinder 154 hp engine. What this means is that you'll get a startling amount of horsepower-193 hp, to be exact. At the same time, the Hybrid Sonata comes equipped with 6-speed transmission to amp up already impressive efficiency, giving you a combined 32 mpg when equipped with a gas engine, and 42 mpg with a hybrid engine.
  • The 2017 Toyota Prius - The Prius runs on a 1.5L Aluminum DOHC 16-Valve engine with Variable Valve Timing and intelligence (VVT-i) technology, but it only gives you 95 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque. It can't provide Savannah drivers with the same high-performance and high-efficiency combo that the Sonata does.

Sophisticated Technologies

The Sonata Hybrid's new technologies are music to our ears! Beaufort drivers will enjoy every ride thanks to the Sonata's tech features:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - The Sonata features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems, which enable you to connect your phone directly to your car for consistent connectivity. It also gives you an Infinity AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 audio system that boasts nine speakers, as well as a subwoofer and a 400-watt external amplifier.
  • The 2017 Toyota Prius - In the Prius, you'll get Entune Audio, an Entune App Suite, and a 3.5-inch Display Screen, but you will most definitely not get the Sonata's nine-speaker audio system.

Reliable Safety Systems

In addition to all of its exciting features, the Sonata is also designed with your and your passengers' safety in mind:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - Not only does the Sonata give you a Rearview Camera and Lane Departure Warning, but the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid also features a Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert as well as Lane Change Assist and even a stunning new Dynamic Bending Lights system.
  • The 2017 Toyota Prius - You'll get Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control, as well as a collection of reliable airbags in the Prius, but you will not have anything like the Sonata's new Dynamic Bending Light system.
