Car and Driver: Baby’s Got The Bends: 2017 Hyundai Sonata Adds Dynamic Headlights

Recommended Posts

2016 Hyundai Sonata Sport

-

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata enters the new model year with the modest addition of dynamic headlights. The headlights, which turn their beams when cornering to help drivers see more of the road around the bend, are only available on the top-of-the-line Sonata Limited. Hyundai also adjusted pricing and equipment levels across the Sonata range.

As last year, the Sonata is offered with one of three four-cylinder engines: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 horsepower, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 245 horsepower, and a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 178 horsepower that’s exclusive to the fuel-efficient Sonata Eco. The former two engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the latter engine relies on a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to swap gears.

The price for the entry-level Sonata is up by $300 to $22,435, while an SE costs $200 more than before, at $22,785. Eco models, priced from $23,960, cost $600 less than last year, while the Sport with the 2.0-liter turbo sees its price fall by a whopping $2325 to $27,435 (Sport trim with the base 2.4-liter engine remains priced from $24,235). The massive price drop comes at the expense of deleting some previously standard features, such as HID headlights, LED taillights, a proximity key, dual-zone climate control, and a blind-spot monitor.

Meanwhile, the luxury-oriented Sonata Limited costs $200 less than the 2016 model, starting at $27,985. Consumers can add the aforementioned dynamic headlights as part of the $3400 Technology package, which also includes heated and vented front seats with memory, a navigation system, and more. Finally, springing for the Limited 2.0T includes the items in the Technology package and more. At $34,910, the Limited 2.0T is priced the same as last year’s car with its passive headlight system.
