2017 Hyundai Sonata Release Date
A surprise seems to be prepared by Hyundai automaker for the year of 2017. This is none other but the newest 2017 Hyundai Sonata. This new midsize sedan is factually decorated with an engine with smaller capacity right under the hood. The surprising thing is located in the fact that this engine can factually develop a greater power compared to its size that is rather small. This quite fascinating concept of the new Sonata will definitely bring the sedan to a higher level of popularity that before.
The Engine of the New 2017 Hyundai Sonata
If you are wondering about what actually the type of engine used to power this 2017 Hyundai Sonata Sedan, it is factually a 2.4L 4 bolt engine. Unfortunately, it is still unknown about whether this engine will be a V6 or V8. The sure thing is that the engine is completed with an ability to develop up to 245 horsepower, which is such an amazing amount of power for an engine that small. In order to create an even better driving experience, this engine will be paired with 6-speed automatic transmission system. This will bring the car to the speed of 60 mph only in about 7.9 seconds. Another thing which is found to be quite unfortunate in this case is that the fuel economy is not really the best. The rating of EPA fuel economy it has is known to be only 36/40 mpg. When this sounds to be something bad, there is actually a possibility for this version of Sonata to be released in hybrid model too. Of course, this if this one will really be offered as an option for buyers, this will have a better fuel economy than just 36/40 mpg resulted from the use of the 2.4L engine.
The Design of 2017 Hyundai Sonata
If seen from the design point of view, 2017 Hyundai Sonata is still made with the major combination of luxury and sporty for the design, just like the previous versions of the same car series. This design will be adorned nicely with 6 different exterior color options. One of those is the desert bronze color which is shown in the very first model of this Sonata exhibited to public. This time, the headlights are made to look slimmer but also sharper in some ways. Other changes can be seen in the exterior design of this new midsize sedan is located in the front grille that is more aggressive in its silver color. Other than this, the body kit is made to be lighter too. It seems this will give some impact to the car performance as well as increasing the top speed it can produce.
