Default 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, Sonata to get direct-inject four-cylinder engines


Hyundai's Montgomery, AL factory added production of four-cylinder engines last year, but recently the engine line has been getting some upgrades. Evidently, Hyundai is getting ready to add direct injection to its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Like other DI engines, the revised version gets increased power along with lower fuel consumption. The DI four cylinder will debut in the refreshed 2010 Santa Fe this fall. Next year, when the completely redesigned Sonata goes into production, it will also get the DI engine.

Power from the DI four cylinder gets bumped from 176 to 200 hp, and it will likely get around 5-10% better gas mileage. The all-new Sonata will be unveiled at the LA Auto Show in November. Next year a hybrid model will join the lineup, as well.

awesome. DI making it to "normal" (non-VWAG ) cars is a good thing.

Trip out. There is that weird camera effect looking at the wheels. I think this is from the readout of what I'm guessing is a cellphone pic.

Smart move. Course now that Ford and Toyota have new 2.5L engines, they should now downsize to DI 2.2L engines for optimal efficiency while maintaining current power levels for base models.
