The manifold and turbine housing of the Sonata 2.0T twin-scroll turbo is one cast stainless-steel piece. Its highly advanced design helps minimize lag and makes this powerplant lighter than a conventional turbo engine while putting out 245 horsepower. Specifically engineered to recover even more energy from the exhaust than a single-scroll turbocharger, the Sonata’s turbo improves combustion efficiency, and provides low-engine-speed efficiency.
Everybody has a different take on steering feel. Some want more steering effort, others less. Well, with Drive Mode Select, now you get to choose. Drive Mode Select adjusts both engine mapping and steering effort to match your driving style. Select from three modes: Eco, Normal or Sport by simply touching a button on the center console.
The Sonata Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T trim levels start with 18-inch alloy wheels and larger front brakes plus modified suspension and steering to deliver a sportier ride and increased steering response.
