Under the Hood
The 2021 Sonata N Line is powered by a new turbocharged version of Hyundai’s 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that receives a new cylinder head with integrated exhaust manifold, piston cooling and other internal modifications to produce 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque from 1650–4000 rpm. The turbocharged Smartstream 2.5-liter gets mated with a new N 8-Speed wet dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters for manual shift-mode. Developed by N Brand engineers for performance and high-torque applications, the transmission is similar to the one in the Veloster N.
