2020 Hyundai Kona Ultimate
I didn’t receive much of an answer when I asked Hyundai USA where the additional 26 hp came from in the 2017 Elantra Sport. While it looks like the same 1.6 Turbo engine as in the other Hyundai models (like my 2016 Tucson), it produces 201 hp, while all the others are rated at 175 hp? They just plain ignored my question! (Maybe they don’t know themselves!). The head mechanic at my dealership though it might be as simple as a different mapping of the engine control module, or as complex as a reworking of the throttle body or other engine change. Then again, they might have just purposely understated the actual hp figure in the earlier engines (not likely). Either way, I’d sure like to know the real answer and I really like to have those 26 extra ponies!!!
