HYUNDAI SONATA N LINE


Hyundai Motor Company has given us more details on the upcoming Sonata N Line. Based on Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design identity, Sonata N Line’s low and wide exterior styling is highlighted by the Parametric Jewel Pattern Grille, bold front fascia, wide air intakes and N Line badging.

Arrow-shaped air curtains on the lower fascia support aerodynamic performance and engine cooling while giving the model a sporty image. At the rear there are an integrated glossy black lip spoiler, chrome dual twin exhaust and N Line rear diffuser.
 
The interior has a leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes, red-stitched sports seats with leather bolsters, gearshift with metal accents and leather inserts and alloy pedals, complement Sonata N Line’s sporty exterior.

The Smartstream 2.5-litre turbo-petrol engine produces 213kW and 422Nm of torque from1,650 to 4,000 rpm. It is mated to an N eight-speed, wet dual-clutch transmission specifically developed for N vehicles.

Unique suspension tuning has firmer bushings, higher spring rates, revised shock absorber valving, as well as larger sway bars front and rear.
 
This Sonata has a topline audio and navigation display. The centrepiece is a customisable 10.25-inch touchscreen monitor with split screens and natural language. The cluster supervision display is 12.3 inches diagonally.

Hyundai Sonata N Line sounds like an interesting package from the South Korean marque and we look forward to road testing one out of our home base on the Gold Coast.
