Looks like Hyundai will continue adding more and more turbocharged engines to it's offerings in the US. Hopefully that will include the Elantra!

During the 12th Hyundai-Kia “International Powertrain Conference” that took place on October 23 and 24 at the Rollins Hill hotel near Hyundai's R&D center in South Korea, the company unveiled its current and future engine and transmission line-up. Chief among them is the next generation of turbocharged petrol engines, which according to the company will offer high performance along with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Hyundai is already offering its T-GDI (Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection) technology in 1.6- and 2.0-liter engines and is now expanding its application to “small, yet strong” units, keeping in line with the downsizing trend that has spread across the industry. At the conference, the company displayed the new Kappa 1.0 TCI (Turbocharger Intercooler) and 1.2 T-GDI petrol engines. The 1.0 TCI has an output of 105HP (106PS) and peak torque of 137.3 Nm (101.2 lb-ft or 14.0 kgm). Its block is made of aluminum and it features an integrated turbocharger and a plastic intake manifold and head cover.

Apart from these two units, the Korean carmaker also showed the Gamma 1.6 T-GDI, Nu 2.0 CVVL and Theta 2.0 T-GDI petrol and the U2 1.1 WGT and Euro 6-compliant 2.0-liter diesel engines, as well as the Kappa continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Hyundai said that it intends to increase its global sales by offering “customized” powertrains suitable for each region. For example, it plans to increase the number of its T-GDI-engine models in major markets like the U.S. and China, introduce flex-fuel units to markets where there are more suitable, and provide engines that will perform the same no matter the temperature in countries that experience extreme weather conditions.
