Found this on another forum.

"We donít expect many styling changes between the North American variant and the Korean domestic market Avante, although North America is slated to receive a 200-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder as the top powertrain offering."

I'm kind of in disbelief. it sounds too good to be true but we can only hope.

its probably the 1.6 gdi turbo...and yes i believe it! although i doubt if it will come with a 6spd...just like the stupid turbo sonata

Krafcik said the Veloster would have a 1.6l making around 160 (if I remember without checking the Veloster thread). So a turbo 1.6l would probably make the 200HP mark. I haven't heard of this from anywhere else though so I'm not so sure. I wonder what the advantage would be for Hyundai to offer a 1.6l turbo engine making 200HP and a 2.4l engine making 200HP (the 2.4 GDI Theta in the Sonata)? Would the 1.6l offer a lower weight and better fuel economy? Perhaps. But, I'll say this probably isn't accurate at this point.

this seems to be the trend...smaller turbo motors that are better on fuel mileage.

Well it needs to be the trend along with GDI engines simply because of the CAFE rules and Hyundai's approach to them. If inadvertently makes them better for modding, then that's just a bonus for people like us.
