Engine Specifications of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata

When looking for the right sedan, the engine capabilities are most likely one of the top priorities. On top of that, fuel economy ratings are also important to note, as a good model can save you at the pump. At Chico Hyundai, you can receive both when you look into the 2020 Hyundai Sonata. But what kind of engine options are there for this year’s model? Continue reading to learn more!

Engine Specifications of Each 2020 Hyundai Sonata Engine Option

Looking at the 2020 Hyundai Sonata engine specifications above, the model offers two options: the 2.5L standard engine and the 1.6L turbocharged engine. While the base engine receives more horsepower, the responsiveness and lower RPMs on both torque horsepower and torque give it a more excitable ride. The turbo engine – which comes in the SEL Plus and Limited trim levels – also receives 18-inch wheels compared to the SE and SEL trims.

What’s the Fuel Economy in Each Motor?

When it comes to fuel economy, both the standard and the turbo engine remain incredibly similar in terms of fuel economy. All trim levels receive a 15.9 gallon fuel tank. Starting with the base 2.5L engine, it receives up to an estimated 27 City, 37 Highway MPG. Meanwhile, the 1.6L turbo engine receives a slightly different 27 City, 36 Highway MPG. A major perk with the 2020 Hyundai Sonata is the fact that the turbo engine only drops by a single estimated mile on the highway, making it a minimal difference to the fuel economy despite a larger jump in performance.
