The 2020 Hyundai Sonata hits the New York Auto Show, with confirmation of a N Line coming soon. The announcement gives the Sonata N Line a performance upgrade.
Later this year, the Sonata launches in the US, and will be available with a choice of two different four-cylinder engines. The most powerful option offers only 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It is a little underwhelming compared to similar midsize sedans in the same class. The automaker says a more powerful option is in the pipeline. Hyundai’s Jim Trainor said to expect “at least 275 horsepower, and probably a lot more” for the vehicle.
The 2020 Sonata will have the 2.0-liter turbocharged version in the markets outside of the United States, including China. The 2020 Sonata still has a great design with upgraded technology, making it ready to expand the line in the future.
The automaker announced that a hybrid option is on the way. Hyundai Motor America CEO Brian Smith said during his speech at the New York Auto Show, “Some dramatically different variants of the new Sonata are in the pipeline.” Hyundai provided no additional information beyond the Sonata N Line being available in 2020.
