However, we also get information about one powertrain configuration. The one listed with a turbocharger is 1.6-liter four-cylinder. With all-wheel drive feature in the car. It returns 26 mpg in the city, 29 in combined driving, and 34 on the highway. The engine is likely the same in the Hyundai Sonata. The engine makes 180 horsepower and 195-pound feet of torque.

Hyundai uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and also the Kia probably will too. But all-wheel drive will be a unique feature of the Kia. Kia previously said there will be another turbocharger engine, with 2.5 liters for the Sonata N-Line with 310 pound-feet of torque and 290 horsepower.
