The new Hyundai Sonata N-Line will get a 2.5 turbo engineNovember 24, 2019
The eighth generation sedan will have “hot” modifications
Hyundai is preparing for the premiere of a “heated” version of the Sonata with a 2.5-liter supercharged engine. Insiders of the Korean company told CNET about the imminent appearance of the Sonata N-Line: the model’s debut may take place in early 2020. In just two years, Hyundai plans to release nine new cars of the N-Line line.
It is expected that the Hyundai Sonata N-Line will receive traditional sports accessories for the line: light-alloy low-profile wheels of the original design, bright brake calipers, aggressive bumpers, a special exhaust, N-Line nameplates on the body and special accents in the interior. Probably, the “sports” version is distinguished by a retuned steering and lowered suspension.
It is predicted that the 2.5-liter “turbo four” will produce about 280 horsepower. Nothing is known about the transmission yet: the Korean manufacturer can equip the “warmed up” sedan with a new 8-speed automatic gearbox as well as with a robotic gearbox with double clutch.
At the moment, the most productive Hyundai Sonata in the Hybrid version is equipped with a power plant with a capacity of 195 horsepower.
Hyundai’s CNET source emphasized that the South Korean brand is preparing the debut of three “purebred” sports models of the N line – a high-performance sedan, SUV and hatchback will go on sale. The timing of the replenishment of the Hyundai N family is not reported.
It is possible that the “heated” version of the Sonata will be declassified in February 2020 at the Chicago Motor Show. Probably, a little later a new sedan with sports notes GT-Line will be released by the related brand Kia on the basis of the fifth-generation Optima.
