2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo
-22MPG City/34MPG Hwy
I’m all for squeezing more power from a smaller engine. And 34MPG is a good reason to do it.
It seems that Hyundai chose to stay pretty subtel with its turbo model.
So it doesn’t look like they’ll market it like a sports sedan. (no manual available) More like an upgrade to the regular model.
Here is what they say:
The 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine in the 2011 Sonata produces 274 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque from 1800-4500 rpm with regular fuel. The Sonata 2.0T will deliver 22 mpg city and 34 mpg highway (preliminary estimates). Hyundai’s turbocharged engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger that when combined with the GDI system results in instantaneous power delivery. Twin-scroll turbochargers have traditionally been used on more expensive high performance engines, but as with GDI, Hyundai has chosen once again to apply this efficient technology in high volume to its most popular model.
The 2.0T engine will be available on the SE and Limited trim level, with the 2.0T Limited getting additional upgrades, including:
– Panoramic sunroof
– 18-inch hyper silver alloy wheels
– Dual exhaust system
– Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
