Apart from the Sonata N, the sub-high performance Sonata N-Line will be unveiled at the 2019 LA Auto Show. We just received confirmation Hyundai will not be showing the N-Line at 2019 LA Auto Show.

The Sonata N is Hyundai’s first mid-size sedan-based high-performance model with a 2.5T-GDi engine and a wet eight-speed DCT dual clutch transmission. 

In particular, as Sonata’s third-generation platform is considered to be a four-wheel drive system, it can be expected not only all-wheel drive but also four-wheel drive models. 

The specification of the Sonata N’s 2.5 T-GDi engine will be similar to the SmartStream G2.5 FR T-GDi engine, which was recently unveiled at the 2019 Hyundai Kia Motors Powertrain Conference.

It has a maximum output of 304 horsepower and a maximum torque of 43.0kgm, and uses dual injection that uses both port injection and direct injection. 

In particular, the company focused on thermal management compared to existing turbo engines by applying an electric CVVT system, a continuously variable oil pump, and a water-cooled intercooler. 

The maximum allowable torque of the SmartStream wet eight-speed DCT transmission is 48.0 kgm, an improvement over the existing dry seven-speed DCT, covering the 2.5 T-GDi engine.
