Following its global reveal Monday, which showed off a futuristic exterior and more luxurious interior, Hyundai has revealed additional details about the 2024 Sonata mid-size sedan at the Seoul Mobility Show in South Korea today, including the powertrain lineup and details on its new tech.

The 2024 Sonata’s engine lineup mostly carries over from the 2023 model. Hyundai confirmed both the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder and turbo 2.5-liter four-cylinder found on the N Line will return, plus the 2.0-liter four-cylinder hybrid; absent, however, is the turbo 1.6-liter four-cylinder option. The automaker said performance and fuel efficiency will be improved compared to the outgoing model and that the hybrid will come with paddle shifters and regenerative braking for the first time, but Hyundai did not provide official figures.
The 2024 Sonata adds over-the-air update capability Hyundai claims will help owners save on maintenance costs. It also will come with a power-operated trunk — a first for the mid-size sedan class, Hyundai claims — as well as the Digital Key 2 system, which allows the car to be locked, unlocked and started via smartphone or smart watch. Additionally, the 12-speaker Bose audio system has been improved.
Pricing is still unavailable, too, but sales for the 2024 Sonata are expected to begin later in 2023.
