2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Hyundai Sonata near Manassas, VA

There are a wide variety of midsize cars to choose from, but with plenty of options comes more research on your part when you want to make sure you take home the right one. We have compiled a comparison between the Altima vs the Sonata here at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg, so you can see how the Altima overcomes its competition with flying colors. Experience everything that the Nissan Altima has to offer by visiting your nearby Nissan dealer today at 5200 Jefferson Davis Hwy. in Fredericksburg, VA.

Under the hood of each vehicle lies a spirited engine, but the Altima’s 2.5L 4-cylinder option is able to save you more time at the pump. With its rating of 39 MPG hwy1, you’ll be able to bypass those gas stations often. However, you most likely won’t be able to do this in the Hyundai Sonata, since its 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain only works out a fuel economy of 36 MPG hwy2. Also, if you’re interested in a V6 option, you won’t find one available in the Sonata, but you’ll certainly be pleased with the Altima’s 3.5L V6 that revs out a heart-stopping 270 horsepower and 251 lb.-ft. of torque. The Nissan Altima also comes equipped with the standard Xtronic CVT®, which offers a smooth and easy ride each time you take the wheel. On the other hand, the best the Sonata’s base model can give you is a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®.

As we reach what’s inside the cabin of both of these models in this comparison near Manassas, you’ll find an impressive amount of unique features in the Nissan Altima that the Hyundai Sonata can’t quite measure up to. First off, the Altima offers a vast amount of 36.1 inches of rear legroom for your back-seaters to take advantage of; your riders may be more disappointed with the 2017 Sonata’s 35.6 inches of rear legroom. Furthermore, if you want to increase the Nissan Altima’s level of luxury, its third trim level incorporates a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel into its design. However, this fine amenity is only optional in the third model up in the Sonata’s lineup.

When it comes to your safety, you can rest assured that the Altima has you covered. Its Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert3 not only lets you know when your tires are low on air, but will alert you when you reach the right pressure level once you go ahead and fill your tires up. The Sonata does have a similar feature, but, unfortunately, you won’t find an alert system on its version.

We at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg think that it’s safe to say that the Altima takes home the gold in this matchup between the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Hyundai Sonata near Manassas, VA. From its compelling drive, to its one-of-a-kind features, there is nothing stopping the Altima from finishing in first place. Your local Nissan dealer is always here to assist you, and you can reach us during our convenient business hours, seven days a week, by calling 540-684-6276.

It took four days to replace a fuel pump which I thought was excessive. But otherwise, they are very professional and the car is running great now.

The service was fine, did not feel pressured. However they messed up the paper work on my vin, not once but twice. The normal buying process was longer than usual the day i purchased my vehicle. Then they email me(which is fine i prefer it that way) that they messed it up a second time. So I had to come back on my time again to get it all straightened out. Honestly don't recommend them,plenty of other dealership's.

We came in unsure of whether I wanted a Hyundai or Nissan. I started on the Hyundai side with Isabel as my salesperson. She was very knowledgeable about the vehicles and also very kind and easy to talk to. She made us feel very comfortable. We did decide on a Nissan and Isabel made sure we had a good delivery experience by having a fellow salesman walk me though everything since Nissan is not her specialty. Great job team Pohanka! :-)

Second purchase and great experience at Pohanka. First car was a Rogue. Great car put over 100,000 miles maintenance free on it. Bought a 2019 Kicks, sales department was fantastic, gave me a great deal and ensured I was satisfied. I've been buying cars for over 40 years and best purchase experience/deals have been with this dealer. I'll go back again for my next purchase.

I recently had my Pathfinder, serviced at Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg, service rep JR, was very friendly and helpful, although they were super busy when I took my car there, he asked me what was wrong with car so started explaining the issue and before I finished explaining he exactly knew what wrong with the car. I would highly recommend Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg, to all the Nissan owners for their service. Thanks J.R

Andrea was awesome. She texted me to be transparent and make sure i got the message she needed to get me. She made sure i agreed to any additional work before they performed it. She was extremely pleasant and helpful. Because of her alone, i will be returning. In addition to that, the service was quick, the whole team is professional and kind. This is very important to me and it is much appreciated.

I was in desperate need of a vehicle, the whole entire staff treated me very well and sold me my first car. A car I'm proud of and practically brand new. I would like to thank the whole entire state at Pohanka Nissan for what they did for me. A car that gets me from point A to point B and very easy on gas, also the car payments are easy to make as well. If you are in need of a car they'll have what you are looking for.

decided to buy my wife a new car before year 2019 ends. I looked around many Nissan dealers but I couldn't find any good deals and the car my wife wanted. However, on New Years eve we decided to go to Pohanka dealer in Fredericksburg and were greeted by salesman Zachary (zak). He was awesome and dedicated to every detail of car purchase. He was so courteous and his honesty lead me to my new 2020 Nissan. the staff work with me from the sales to management, Mr. kwakye. I certainly have a great start of 2020.

The people were very nice and kind, however that's all I can say nice. I waited almost four hours for an oil change, tire rotation, factory recall on camera, and a window foam issue. To top all this my $40k new vehicle was scratched just for getting for my visit. Now I have to take off work to get the scratch fixed.

My wife and I started our car shopping here at Pohanka Nissan. We had no intentions of buying today and just wanted to see if my wife had any interest in the Murano. Long story short, the dealer (Roman) was very relatable, quickly narrowed the available inventory down to what my wife was looking for, gave us plenty of purchase/leasing options, tracked down incentives and deals through my employer and military status, and after a respectfully tough negotiation with my wife...was ultimately able to put us in a wonderful vehicle at a great deal. Sabrina in finance was amazing as well, super helpful and friendly. Definitely an asset to Pohanka. Highly recommended dealership. See Roman and tell him Matt/Nick sent you.
