Hyundai revealed Sonata N Line with more than 275 horsepowerApril 18, 2019
In September of this year, at the plant in Alabama (USA), Hyundai will launch into production a regular version of the Sonata 2020 model year, the start of sales is scheduled for October of this year. Next year, hybrid and “charged” versions of the South Korean business sedan will be available to buyers.
This week at the auto show in New York, the automaker Hyundai “removed the wrapper” from the American version of the Sonata 2020 sedan model year. Two engines are available for the novelty – this is the base 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with 180 horsepower (264 Nm), as well as a 2.5-liter turbo-charged engine with a capacity of 191 hp.
If this is not enough, you will be happy to hear that a more powerful version of the sedan called the N Line is in development – it will be able to offer more than 275 horsepower.
During the presentation of the South Korean car, representatives of the company also revealed plans for a hybrid version of the Sonata 2020. The start of its sales is scheduled for spring 2020. Soon after, the more powerful Sonata N Line will also be available for purchase. Although this power is identical to the power of the 2.0-liter engine in the “charged” i30 N and the Veloster N, most likely this Sonata N Line will use the high-performance configuration of the 2.5-liter engine that can be found in a regular Sonata. This motor was developed quite recently.
“Several fundamentally different options for the new Sonata are under development,” said Hyundai Motor America CEO Brian Smith during his performance at the New York Auto Show.
