Option packages on higher trims include Tech and Ultimate package, bringing luxurious things like a touchscreen navigation system, bi-xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control, auto emergency braking, and an Infinity stereo.
Three engine choices are available with the 2017 Sonata:
The Sonata SE, Sport, and Limited use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. Teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission, most Sonatas return 25 miles per gallon in the city and 36 mpg on the highway in EPA testing.
The Sonata Eco is the only model offering a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission, this model represents the most efficient a non-hybrid Sonata will get, returning 28 mpg city and 36 mpg on the highway.
The Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T models use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 245 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Alongside a six-speed automatic transmission, these models feature a fuel economy rating of 22 city and 31 highway, according to the EPA.
