NY Show: 2011 Hyundai Sonata gets New 2.0 Turbo with 274HP

Along with the all-new Sonata Hybrid (read more here), Hyundai also premiered a new turbocharged version of its well-received mid size sedan at the New York International Auto Show.

The Sonata 2.0T, as the car is officially named, is powered by a new 2.0-liter Theta II twin-scroll turbocharged gasoline direct-injection (GDI) engine that produces 274 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque from 1800-4500 rpm with regular fuel.

The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC manual control that drives the front wheels. No performance figures were released but Hyundai did announce that the Sonata 2.0T will deliver an estimated 22 mpg (10.7lt/100km) city and 34 mpg (6.9lt/100km) highway.

The 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbo engine will be available on the Sonata SE and Limited trim level, with the Limited getting additional upgrades, including a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch “hyper” silver alloy wheels, dual exhaust system and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
