Hyundai developed it especially for the British market and in terms of power train the model includes a new European-developed gasoline engine, the Nu 2.0-liter GDI – Gasoline Direct Injection.

When it comes to the R diesel engine, the specialists made sure to offer clean technology like LP-EGR – low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation.
