By Check

For 2017, Hyundai offers a great lineup of sedans that deliver solid performance, convenient amenities and plenty of high-tech features. For just over $20,000, you can buy an Elantra or Sonata that’s packed with premium installations. Of course, the full-size Azera has a luxurious design that justifies a hefty price tag.

If you’re looking to become a green driver, then choose from the Ioniq Hybrid, Ioniq Electric or Sonata Hybrid/Plug-In Hybrid. These economical vehicles include electric motor and lithium-ion batteries that deliver class-leading efficiency. Despite being efficient, these Hyundai models surely don’t compromise on digital technology or active safety.

Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Blue Link are some of the mobile-friendly features that are available in 2017 Hyundai sedans. GPS navigation systems with SiriusXM services are also optional in select trims. Additionally, the Infinity audio systems provide superb acoustic quality.

2017 Azera

Rated at 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, a 3.3 L V6 engine propels the Hyundai Azera. Available in two models, this full-size sedan comes standard with the six-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission, which has the Active ECO System. Thanks to this signature technology, the car gets up to 28 MPG on the highway and 20 MPG in the city.

As a luxurious vehicle, the Azera offers many premium interior amenities, such as a 12-way driver’s seat with ventilation and heating. An 8-inch GPS navigation system and the 14-speaker Infinity Logic 7 sound system are some notable technology options. Additionally, the Lane Change Assist, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross-traffic Alert are advanced safety features that are standard.



2017 Sonata

This mid-size Hyundai offers a turbocharged 2.0 L GDI engine that whips out 245hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Rated at about 180hp and 200 lb.-ft. of torque, a 1.6 L turbo engine is installed in the Eco trim. The third powertrain option is a 2.4 L engine that yields 185hp and about 180 lb.-ft. of torque. Each engine can be customized by the standard Drive Mode Select.

The Sonata gets a maximum fuel economy of 36 MPG on the highway and 28 MPG in the city. These impressive ratings can be partially attributed to the Dual-Continuous Variable Valve Timing. The EcoShift transmission system with dual clutches is also engineered for efficient changes in gears.



2017 Elantra

Available in five compact models, the Hyundai Elantra has an economical powertrain. You may choose from a 1.4 L engine or 1.6 L engine, which both include single-scroll turbochargers. A 2.0 L engine with a naturally aspirated induction system is also available. The Drive Mode Select and motor-driven power steering system provide excellent control over this lightweight car.

The Elantra offers up to 40 MPG on the highway and 32 MPG in the city. These ratings can be achieved only with the EcoShift transmission system, which has seven gear speeds and dual clutches. A turning diameter of less than 35 feet makes this Hyundai easy to handle on urban roads.

Some notable interior amenities in this compact Hyundai include the CleanAir Ionizer and Auto Defogging System, which are part of an automatic climate control system with dual zones. Having a smartphone-friendly design, the Elantra comes standard with Android Auto, Apple Car Play and Bluetooth.



2017 Ioniq Hybrid

Under the hood of the Ioniq Hybrid is a 1.6 L GDI engine that’s paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. This traditional hybrid powertrain yields a net output of 139 horsepower. Additionally, brake energy regeneration works in sync with the hybrid system. The Ioniq Hybrid Blue edition is rated at 59 MPG on the highway and 57 MPG on city streets. An 11.9-gallon fuel tank offers a driving range of up to 690 miles.

Available with the Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection and Smart Cruise Control, the Ioniq Hybrid leads its class in active safety. The Limited trim is also loaded with high-tech features, including a navigation system with an 8-inch touch screen and the Infinity audio system with the Clari-Fi Music Restoration technology.



2017 Ioniq Electric

Rated at 88 kW, an electric motor is standard in the Ioniq Electric. The car’s lithium-ion battery pack generates a peak output of 360 v. A transmission system with a single-speed reduction gear works smoothly with the efficient powertrain that produces zero emissions.

When fully charged, the Ioniq Electric is rated at 136 MPGe. You can cruise for up to 124 miles on the highway or in the city from a single charge. Regenerative braking helps you achieve maximum efficiency in heavy traffic conditions. A DC charger can be conveniently plugged into any power outlet at home or in public.



2017 Sonata Hybrid/Plug-in

Following the Atkinson Cycle, a 2.0 L engine powers the Sonata Hybrid/Plug-in. This GDI engine is coupled with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. A six-speed automatic transmission with the SHIFTRONIC technology is standard in this economical car.

The Sonata Hybrid SE is rated at 45 MPG on the highway and 39 MPG in the city. When running on only gas, the plug-in hybrid trims have a rating of 39 MPG. These models can be driven for up to 27 miles on only electrical power. Additionally, the plug-in hybrid editions are rated at 99 MPGe.
