Hyundai welcomes the Sonata Turbo to the Middle East
Hyundai Motor Company has announced the Middle East arrival of the All-New Sonata Turbo Sport. Taking its place as the new flagship car in a model line-up that was launched in the region last September, the Sport Turbo can hit a top speed of 235kph and offers striking exterior design changes and a sporty interior.
At the heart of this model lies a 2.0L four cylinder Turbo gasoline direct injection (T-GDI) engine which allows for increased acceleration, higher torque (350 Nm) and more power – at 242 hp it delivers a 38 per cent increase over the current range-topping model. Supporting this punchy engine, which can reach 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds, is a newly refined sport-tuned suspension that results in a sportier driving experience even at high speeds.
On the outside, new features include 18-inch alloy wheels and dual twin tip exhaust mufflers, which enhance the powerful engine tone and complement the performance. On the inside, design enhancements include turbo stitching, a sporty D-cut three-spoke steering wheel for easy handling, a new gear knob and interior trims.
