I just had a Sonata Turbo on loan to me for a road trip and perhaps the numbers on paper aren't impressive but it sure takes off when you put your foot down to pass or from a roll. It is more than fast enough

I also got 33.4mpg (EPA is 34mpg) highway and that was with it loaded up with the family and driving driving at 80mph with a few jaunts to 100. I am also notoriously a mileage killer with my driving so I was surprised



Edit to add: Car and Driver got 0-60 in 6.5 and 1/4 mile at 14.9 @ 97mph. That is not exactly slow for a big sedan that is not meant to be all that sporty
