Last year Hyundai denied the current Sonata as "N-Line". But a lot has happened since then and more and more Hyundai Sonata N Line prototypes have been spotted and already presented as a prototype by various media. And now a video of a completely undisguised vehicle has even been posted on the web. But only for a few minutes. But The Korean Car Blog managed to take a few screenshots of the N-Line Sonata during this time and also to find out some technical details. As you can see from the screenshots, the performance-oriented sedan has been given a slightly redesigned front apron with more aggressive air intakes, there is an N-Line grille, an exhaust system with four tailpipes and sportier rims in an estimated 19 inches. In contrast, relatively little is happening in the interior.
2,5-liter four-cylinder with turbo
Compared to a normal Sonata, the interior is reduced to new sports seats from the brand N with fabric and leather upholstery, there are red contrasting stitching and a slightly redesigned steering wheel with the N-Line logo. According to the video, the Sonata N-Line, which weighs 1545 kg, has a 2.5 T-GDi engine with turbocharger that generates 286 PS (213 kW / 290 PS) and 421 NM of torque. Incidentally, this is the engine from the Kia K5 GT. The eight-speed DCT dual clutch transmission is used to shift the power to the front wheels. Apparently there is also an improved chassis with revised springs and dampers and according to the video there is also a launch control, a "Sports +" mode and a more powerful brake system.
Presentation in 2020
The brakes could also come from the K5 GT and therefore retard with 345 mm (13,6 inch) discs at the front and 325 mm (12,8 inch) mm at the rear. An official debut is expected shortly and the Sonata N-Line should then hit the market in South Korea in the third quarter.
