This is the Hyundai Sonata N-Line Before You’re Supposed to See it

Sonata N-Line leaks ahead of full reveal, with photos inside and out

  • 290 hp turbo four to power hotter Sonata in N-minor

  • Sharper Sonata expected to launch very soon


It seems that someone at Hyundai may have made a bit of a slip yesterday, but that’s given us a full look at the upcoming Hyundai Sonata N-Line before we were supposed to see the whole thing of the new Korean sports sedan.

Shortly after Hyundai revealed the first official photo, a video appeared showing the full car. It was taken back down quickly, but The Korean Car Blog got a copy, and they’ve published a full gallery of photos of the quickest Sonata.

Starting with a more aggressive grille and front bumper, the Sonata N-Line wears an N badge along with 19-inch wheels and Y-rated performance rubber. There are also side skirt extensions and faux vents behind the rear wheels, with the shape ending in a quad exhaust and a large rear diffuser.

On the inside, the N Line has a red-trimmed steering wheel and red gauges, and in a big of a surprise, the wheel doesn’t have a flat bottom. Large thumb wraps and what looks like carbon trim help make it look the part, though, as do heavily bolstered front sports seats with N embroidery and what looks like a suede covering.

KCB reports that the N-Line will use a 2.5L turbo-four like that offered in the Genesis G80, here making 290 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque. The report also says it’ll have a 9L/100 km fuel economy on the combined Korean cycle, though we’re not sure how that will translate to Canadian roads. The gearbox is an eight-speed DCT.

A stiffer suspension with dedicated dampers and bushings are also expected, with the official release of the car anticipated this quarter.

  1. I can’t believe they left out the fog lights. What a disappointment. I suspect there will be no rear vents in the center console and no power for the passenger seat. That is what KIA did on their GT and it really cheapened it. I hope Hyundai sees the light (as in fog light) and correct their deficient model before it goes into final production.
