Breathe Easier Inside Your 2015-2017 Hyundai Sonata with a K&N Cabin Air Filter

With a K&N Cabin Air Filter you'll never have to buy another for your 2015-2017 Hyundai Sona

A K&N cabin air filter is the first line of defense against harmful intruders in your Hyundai Sonata

Few automotive enthusiasts haven’t heard the name Giorgetto Giugiaro. After all, the Italian designer has shaped automobiles for such elite manufacturers as Alfa-Romeo, Aston Martin, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lotus, Maserati, and others. Giugiaro also designed the first Hyundai Sonata seen in the United States, the second-generation Y2 model, in 1988.

Fast forward to 2014 and the introduction of the seventh generation Sonata, code-named LF. The Hyundai Sonata has served as a versatile platform, sold in a variety of trim levels with six different engines and four different transmissions, variations based on the global market.

In the US, the 2015-2017 Hyundai Sonata was available with four engine options:

The 1.6 L turbocharged Gamma GDI engine features an aluminum block and DOHC 16V aluminum cylinder head with dual CVVT, twin-scroll turbocharger, and an air-guided intercooler. The 1.6 Gamma produces 177 horsepower.

The 2.0 L turbocharged Theta engine features a high-pressure die-cast aluminum alloy engine block, hollow stainless-steel dual overhead camshafts (DOHC) with powder-metal cam lobes, pent-roof combustion chambers, and gasoline direct injection. The 2.0L Theta produces 245 horsepower.

The 2.4 L naturally-aspirated Theta engine shares the same architecture and construction as the 2.0 L version, with the same bore but with a stroke lengthened by nine millimeters. In addition, the compression ratio was reduced from 10.5:1 to 10.3:1. The 2.4 L Theta produces 185 horsepower.

Every K&N Cabin Air Filters carries a One Million Mile Warranty

A K&N cabin air filter helps block mold, mildew, fungus, spores, bacteria, dust, and more

The Hybrid power plant is based on the Nu 2.0L GDI Atkinson Cycle DOHC 16-valve Inline four-cylinder engine coupled to either a 51 or 67 horsepower electric motor for a combined 193 or 202 horsepower. The block and cylinder head are both cast of aluminum, DOHC, and 16 valves operated by Dual-Continuous Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT).

Regardless of engine, each of these models shares at least one common component: the cabin air filter.

Hyundai installs cabin air filters in the ventilation system to clean and filter the outside air that enters your Sonata. As the filter does its job and it collects dust, debris, spores, and pollen. At a certain point, the filter becomes clogged, restricting the air entering your ventilation system.

Without the full flow of air around which the ventilation system was designed it could cause your air conditioning or your defrost system to not work as efficiently as they should, and could even reduce the lifespan of those components resulting in expensive repairs.

For example, if you drive in an area with sand, dust, pollen, spores, even debris like leaves in the autumn, over time these contaminants can collect on your filter and reduce air flow through your Sonata’s heating and air conditioning system. An indication of a clogged or partially clogged cabin air filter is that the fan needs to be set higher than usual to get the same amount of air. In addition, if you’re plagued with persistent bad odors inside the car they can often be traced to bacteria or mold growing on an old filter.
