2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Manassas, VA

Purchasing a new car is a thrilling process, but it can become difficult with so many options to choose from. Here at Pohanka Hyundai, we believe that the Hyundai Sonata is the ideal compact sedan for you and your family! In addition, we want to take it a step forward and prove it’s worth by compiling a comparison between the 2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Manassas, VA. You can see this compelling compact sedan for yourself here at your local Hyundai dealer.

Expect to find some serious force underneath the hood of the 2017 Sonata. Its 2.4L 4-cylinder base engine cranks out a noteworthy 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. You won’t get the same kind of heart-racing performance when you drive the 2017 Altima, as its 2.5L 4-cylinder standard powertrain only works out 179 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. Even the Altima’s 3.5L V6 can’t keep up with the Sonata’s available 2.0L 4-cylinder Twin-scroll Turbo engine. The Altima’s V6 pumps out 251 lb.-ft. of torque, but the Sonata takes it one step above with its 260 lb.-ft. of torque.

Continuing in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Manassas, VA, comparison, you’ll find more standard amenities in the Hyundai Sonata. You’ll be able to park and maneuver with an extra set of eyes, thanks to the rearview camera, which displays what’s behind your Sonata. You’ll have to upgrade your trim level, however, if you want access to Nissan’s RearView Monitor1 in the Altima. Also in the base trim of the Hyundai Sonata you’ll find a 7-inch touchscreen that displays performance information and connects you to an AM/FM radio. A 7-inch touchscreen is available in the Altima, but you certainly won’t see it in its base model.

You can keep the thrills coming while inside the Sonata, as it boasts standard smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay™2 and Android Auto™3. Connect to your favorite applications, look up directions, stream your personal playlists, and more using these convenient innovations. If you want access to everything you love about your smartphone, you’ll have to opt for a higher trim level in the Nissan Altima. Providing you with 16.3 cu. ft. of trunk room is the Hyundai Sonata, so you can pack whatever you need to bring along for the journey. On the other hand, you may have to leave a few items behind, as the Nissan Altima only gives you 15.4 cu. ft. of cargo space4. To top it off, the Sonata features a class-exclusive5 hands-free smart trunk, which doesn’t require you to even take out your key fob to access the back unit. Unfortunately, the Nissan Altima doesn’t even offer this feature.

Taking home the gold in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Manassas, VA, is the incredible 2017 Sonata!
