Hyundai introduced the pet name of the turbocharged Sonata as "Sonata Sensuous" and said it would hit the market on Friday. The new turbo version is fitted with a Smartstream 1.6-liter turbo engine embedded with continuously variable valve duration technology (CVVL).
CVVL is a technology which controls the timing of valve opening and closing to maximize an engine's fuel efficiency and performance. Hyundai's new technology also controls the time a valve stays open, allowing the engine to adapt and match valve timing to its driving environments in real time.
Sonata is Hyundai's iconic mid-sized sedan lineup that was first released in 1985. The sedan has been popular among consumers in their 30s and 40s over two decades.
