The seventh generation of Hyundai’s mid-sized sedan goes on sale in the third-quarter of 2014 with new sheet metal and a new interior. Hyundai engineers have been working to re-engineer the Sonata’s platform to improve ride quality, handling and steering. The current Sonata’s lineup of 2.4-liter and 2.0-liter turbo engines also are expected to carry over into the seventh generation, but should have improvements to boost efficiency. A 1.6-liter turbo is a rumored addition, either as a replacement to the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder or as an additional engine.
