2017 Sonata Hybrid

Part of New Multimedia Enhancements

When you head to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to fall in love with the new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, make sure and pay particular attention to the new multimedia system. With a large 7-inch touchscreen display beaming in high resolution, its now easier than ever to make your audio and hands-free communication choices while still paying attention to the road. The new system also includes HD Radio, along with the ability to link to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can use some of your smartphone apps. Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics connectivity is also part of the package. Upgrade to the 8-inch navigation system to get a split-screen display and the ability to program in SiriusXM satellite presets. Travel Link provides the very latest in news, sports and traffic information.

Transmission Houses Electric Motor

The innovative design of the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is evidenced by the placement of the 38 kW electric motor. It rests inside the 6-speed automatic transmission where you would normally find a torque converter. An electric oil pump delivers greater efficiency than the standard hydraulic option, making it possible for the Sonata to hit 75 mph based on electric power alone. By teaming the electric motor with a 4-cylinder gas engine, the Sonata produces a very respectable 205 horsepower while earning 39 mpg in the city and 45 mpg out on the open road. With a full tank of gas and the battery completely charged, you can expect to drive about 650 miles if conditions are normal.

Sonata Hybrid Packed With Safety Features

With seven airbags, stability management, stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitoring all standard, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is one of the safest cars on the road. Driver assistance safety features that use sensors and cameras to help avoid wrecks are also available. Systems such as blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist all contribute to helping you reach your destination safely.

World’s Best Warranty Has You Covered

With a 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, Hyundai delivers the most peace of mind for the money. The powertrain has an even longer warranty, stretching out across 10 years and 100,000 miles. Choose the Blue Link telematics system as an option and you’ll receive a year’s worth of complimentary services when you buy your new Sonata at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Hyundai Enjoys Best August Ever


CUV Sales Boost Overall Totals

Hot sales by the Hyundai lineup of crossover utility vehicles (CUV) gave the company the best August ever in terms of overall sales. This comes right at the time Hyundai is releasing its new line of Genesis luxury cars. The G80 is now available for a test drive at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, soon to be followed by the premium G90. “Strong performances by our family of CUVs led us to our best August ever,” according to Hyundai national sales VP Derrick Tatami. “It’s a similar story to the past couple of months we see continuing as the summer draws to a close.” Now is the best time of the year to make a deal on 2016 models as dealerships need to make room for the 2017 Hyundai lineup.

Santa Fe, Tucson Lead the Way

Very strong sales from the CUV lineup of the Santa Fe, Santa Fe Sport and smaller Tucson were the main reason for the record month. The Santa Fe, Hyundai’s midsize utility vehicle, had a 69 percent increase from the previous year. The Santa Fe Sport was up 21 percent and the Tucson had a 15 percent increase. With fuel efficiency reaching 28 mpg on the highway and a starting price tag of just $25,350, the Santa Fe Sport is the mid-range of the Hyundai CUV offerings. The Sport offers a 185 horsepower four-cylinder engine, 6-speed automatic and 71.5 cubic feet of interior cargo room to haul everything from kids to antiques. Bluetooth connectivity, a suite of available driver assistance safety features and America’s best warranty program make the Sport a no-brainer for daily commutes or a weekend excursion.

Genesis G80 Off to Strong Start

Hyundai executives are thrilled with the initial month of G80 sales, indicating that the new luxury line is filling a void in the American marketplace. The company sold 1,497 of the sophisticated sedans in August, leading to optimism that the G90 will do just as well. “It’s exciting to see our first G80s being delivered to customers and we’re very happy with the reception it’s receiving,” according to Erwin Raphael, general manager for the Genesis line in the United States. “And I expect we’ll see the first G90s getting to our dealers later this month, another milestone moment for our nascent brand.” Whether you’re looking for a fun and versatile daily driver or a new take on a comfortable luxury sedan that still delivers plenty of performance, head over to your Scottsdale Hyundai dealer, Chapman Hyundai, and take a look at what’s new from Hyundai.

Luxury Brand Offers Voice Activated Controls

When the new luxury Hyundai Genesis G80 and G90 arrive at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale for sale, they will be loaded with a variety of luxury features normally only available on much more expensive name plates. One of the features will be the ability to control your vehicle from home with the use of the Amazon Echo voice activation system. The Echo is a relatively new product from the online retail giant, which to date had been used to control the automation features of a home, including music, lights, temperature and security. When the new Genesis vehicles hit the streets, you can use the echo to access the Alexa virtual assistant and start your car, adjust the temperature, unlock or lock doors or simply find its location. Drivers who purchase a G90 will also receive an Amazon gift card.

Hyundai Takes Giant Leap Forward

Although Hyundai has a history of offering luxury vehicles such as the Equus, the creation of a Genesis lineup of extremely upscale cars takes the automaker to another level. Expected to arrive at dealerships sometime next year, the G80 and G90 are poised to compete against BMW, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz, offering the same quality and performance for a much lower price. The G90 has very few options, because its loaded with standard features such as noise suppression, power sunroof, leather dash, heated and ventilated seats, soft-close doors and a 17-speaker killer audio system. You can choose between a turbocharged 3.3L engine or naturally-aspirated 3.8L motor. Both will pin you back in your seat when you hit throttle. When combined with a superior suspension system with driver-adjustable dampers, the G90 blurs the line between sophistication and mind-blowing fun.

G80 Pairs Power With All Wheel Drive

Like its bigger brother, the Hyundai Genesis G80 comes with a technologically superior HTRAC all-wheel drive system that improves control in tough road conditions, as well as providing superior handling when you take those corners a little too quickly. You can choose from a 311-horsepower V6, or step up to the 32-valve V8 that produces 420 horses and 383 pound-feet of torque. Adjustable seats offer 16 different positions so you can be at your most comfortable on those long road trips. Premium leather seating and wood trim add to the level of sophistication on this modern executive sedan. Stay in close contact with the pros at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to see when the new Genesis brand is ready for a test drive.

2017 Sonata 2.0T

See Around Corners With New Safety Feature

By rotating the projector in the front headlights to reflect light in the direction the wheels turn, Hyundai has added an important new safety feature to the 2017 Sonata. Since the inception of the headlight, driving at night worked wonderfully as long as you stayed on a perfectly straight highway. Once you get on a dark country road with twists and turns, the illumination factor decreases rapidly every time you go around a corner. With Dynamic Bending Light, the new Sonata helps see animals, vehicles and other obstacles that might be lurking around corners. You can see and test drive the new Sonata now at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

New Technology Comes With Lower Prices

Even with new safety technology available on the 2017 Hyundai Sonata, the base price of both the Eco and Sport 2.0T have dropped. You’ll notice a $600 price savings from last year on the Eco, and a stunning price reduction of $2,300 off the starting ticket on the Sport. Other safety features on the new Sonata include adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, lane assist, high beam assist, rear parking sensors and blind spot awareness.

Standard Features Help Keep You in Control

When you buy any model of the 2017 Sonata, you get a number of safety features that help keep you on the road and heading in the right direction in the case of inclement weather. Vehicle stability management, traction control and electronic stability control are all designed to help right the vehicle if you should start to skid out of control. In the case of a crash, the Sonata is outfitted with seven airbags to help protect you and your passengers. Every Sonata has four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes that come with electronic brake distribution, to make sure the proper amount of stopping power goes to each wheel.

Choose From Three Different Powertrains

Depending on the model of Sonata you choose, there are three different engines available for the 2017 model year. The base engine is a naturally-aspirated 2.4L that generates a respectable 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. The Eco has a smaller 1.6L engine, but it’s turbocharged so it pumps out 178 horses and 195 pound-feet of torque. The most powerful engine available is the 245-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged GDI engine that mates with a six-speed transmission. Take some time and compare all the models in the Hyundai Sonata inventory at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, then pick the one that best suits your driving needs.
