What's New for the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?

For 2019, Hyundai is rolling out a vehicle that's strikingly close to the 2018 Sonata model. In fact, there's only been one substantial change. The Sport+ trim will no longer have a turbocharged engine available.

Previously, this turbo-4 2.0-liter engine had been customized for the Sonata Sport and rated at 245 horsepower. Now that it's no longer offered for the trim level, the most powerful engine option is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a 185 horsepower capacity.
