Sonata N Line adds looks, power
Hyundai has unwrapped its newest N Line product — a Sonata that’s not as high performance as the brand’s N models, but still plenty sporty for a four-door car. The Sonata N Line takes its cues from Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design ID for a front-end look that includes the cascading grille, mildly remodelled front fascia, and triple air intakes. It’s got new 19-inch alloy wheels below the N Line side skirts, and a back end highlighted by a lower bumper and dual twin exhausts. Inside, changes are limited to some dark chrome trim, sport seats and red stitching on the steering wheel. Perhaps most importantly, the first N Line Sonata will have a new power plant — a 2.5-litre turbo in-line four-cylinder that makes 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque.
