I just leased the Turbo when my BMW 5 series xi was coming to a close. The ONLY thing I miss is the heated steering wheel. In ALL other areas this car matches the BMW - I can't believe it. Interior roominess, head room, amenities, legroom, interior AND exterior design, nav system, auto/manual option, TURBO RESPONSE. For me it came down to the VW CC and the Sonata Turbo. The MAJOR point for me was "...but it's a Hyundai...".
Well - no effing more - from now on I'll have to say BECAUSE it's a Hyundai.
Personal plug for the folks at KEY Hyundai in Milford CT. NOT PRESSURE. No need. The freaking car sells itself....

On a 1200+ mile trip from Tulsa to Florida with cruise, good conditions and very little wind, I got 35.3 according to the trip computer and figuring it the long way with math, i got 34. 653. Not bad considering I was driving it home brand new from the dealer in Tulsa were I bought it.

I called them as well with the same results. I purchased a demo turbo limited for a good price and have put another 1500 miles on it with no problems so far. I did some research and CR gave them a higher score than anything Ford had. I went from a Lincoln MKS to the Sonata. MKS gave me so many problems, I turned it in early. I notice mine has a huge battery in it. Maybe to address the accessory issue even if Hyundai admits it or not. I gets a battery warning on the nav screen like every 3-4 mins in accessory mode due to battery drainage, but at least I get a warning. Sometime I would find out I left the key on to long after I was listening to the radio while washing the car and cooking on the grill. I was impressed with the ride, agility, and power of the vehicle. this little 4-cyl puts out more horses and a smother ride than my MKS ever did (3.7 engine, not the eco boost). I had it tinted and many who have seen it can not believe it is a Hyundai. My favorite with the car is watching the cars in the mirror get small real fast, lol.

How smooth is the 2.0t turbo engine vs a V6?
And how quiet is the cabin vs say a Buick LaCrosse or Regal?

I traded in my 03 Maxima SE for a 2.0 SE. It's definitely a ticket magnet. Was really impressed when I test drove it.
To answer the question on the interior sound, it's very little. However, I felt that Hyundai skimped out on the cushioning of all the seats. It's not as comfy as my Maxima. Otherwise, it's a family sedan with a impressive engine. Definitely I felt that I made the right choice!
