The popular subcompact car has been totally redesigned, starting with its chassis, which uses more advanced high-strength steel. The result is a stiffer chassis, which should improve driving dynamics, isolate noise better, and absorb energy better in a crash, all without adding too much weight. The suspension has also been tweaked to improve ride comfort, handling, and stability, and Hyundai says the steering is also more precise.
The powertrain hasn’t changed too much, with the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine producing 132 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque, which is actually less than before. What has improved is the engine’s powerband, which will make highway passing less stressful.
Transmissions are still a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic, but the auto box has been improved to be more efficient and it now comes with a Sport mode. Hyundai says fuel economy has improved 7 percent.
