MORE SATISFYING TO DRIVE.
For a deeper understanding of how this new Sonata delivers rewarding ride and handling performance on the road, consider these suspension and chassis upgrades. New front and rear suspension designs provide enhanced steering response, handling capability and stability. While a new dual lower arm rear suspension enhances braking and stability during high speed maneuvers. In addition, road noise has been reduced through improved vehicle chassis rigidity and soundproofing materials.
Advanced Twin-scroll Turbo
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.
Steering Feel Meets Freedom Of Choice
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 starts with 18-inch alloy wheels and larger front brakes plus modified suspension and steering to deliver a sportier ride and increased steering response. A larger rear stabilizer bar reduces body roll and improves handling on curves. Stylish quad exhaust set in a sporty rear diffuser make the most of its turbocharged engine, while paddle shifters mounted on the D-cut leather-wrapped steering wheel put it all at the driver’s fingertips.
