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. 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 the turbocharged engine, while paddle shifters mounted on the D-cut leather-wrapped steering wheel put it all at the driver’s fingertips.
Sonata’s strong yet sophisticated design has evolved—informed by confidence, technology and attention to detail. All revealed in an exterior that features a 0.27 coefficient of drag that helps improve fuel economy.
Now there are two ways to get your daily dose of sunshine, fresh air and vitamin D. Sonata gives you a choice of either an available power tilt-and-slide sunroof or a panoramic sunroof. This large glass roof opens wide to give you an unobstructed view above.
This thoughtful available feature automatically switches from high to low beam headlights when an oncoming vehicle is detected. While the available LED Daytime Running Lights, HID headlights, and LED tail lights not only look great but also add increased visibility.
The Sonata has more passenger and total interior space than any other vehicle in its class.* In other words: There’s plenty of room for five, plus luggage.
A rearview camera and all-new 7-inch color LCD touchscreen are offered on the Sonata. This new display controls an audio system with AM/FM/CD/MP3, HD Radio™ technology, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, plus built-in smartphone/USB and auxiliary input jacks. Select the available 400-watt Infinity® audio system that features all of the above specs and 9 speakers for added sound quality that’s sure to impress.
No more fumbling with the key when you've got a key that enables your car to recognize you. Approach your Sonata with the available Proximity Key in your pocket and enjoy the ultimate convenience. Unlock or lock your car, start the engine with the push of a button and go.
The Sonata’s available navigation system makes getting to your destination easier. Use voice-recognition or the interactive 8-inch touchscreen for directions without distractions. The SiriusXM Travel Link® allows you to search for nearby businesses like gas stations, ATMs or restaurants. It also gives you a clear picture of current traffic situations, the weather, stocks and sports, all in real time. Plus, it can even let you know fuel prices and movie times.
This thoughtful available feature automatically switches from high to low beam headlights when an oncoming vehicle is detected.
To set this feature, just push the button located on the center console below the shifter. When the available Electronic Parking Brake is set, it disengages automatically once the gas pedal is depressed. And there’s an Automatic Vehicle Hold feature that will engage the parking brake automatically after the brake is depressed, without your foot on the pedal.
This standard feature offers added protection for the driver and is just one more innovative element of Sonata’s comprehensive passive and active safety systems.
This available radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it’s not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning.
