Will the 2.0l trim ever recive a sports spec model and carry this motor in it as well?

2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI engine, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata offers an unprecedented combination of segment-leading fuel efficiency and power – with a 34 mpg highway rating, 274 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque from 1,800 - 4,500 rpm with regular fuel. The Sonata 2.0T delivers an outstanding 22 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
if it did man would this car pack a punch!

272hp and 269lbs of torque is going to be a ton of fun on a small car like the Elantara. 34mpg highway.. And regular fuel. Torque and power is at low rpms. This is going to be fun to drive in the city.
NOOO WAYYY! Justify this please! Where did you hear this info from? Cuz that would be freakin awesome! So much power for a compact ****.
The mileage is very impressive as well. For something with this much power. 34mpg. Of course real world mileage is going to be different. Plus Hyundai likes to over shoot their mileage.
34mpg? Really for that much horsepower? Finally something with power and efficiency! I cant wait!
I was reading that Hyundai is working on a performance version of it's Elantra 2 door hatch in Europe. No word on what exactly it will have but if they have any hope in making it a hit, it will need this powerplant, or something similar.

So, at the moment, IF this becomes a reality it will be in Europe first, maybe a year later for North America?
When I bought my Elantra sport the dealer hinted about the possibility of a 2.0 turbo. I think it would be a fun car but probably wont happen. In America the Elantra is an economy car competing against the Civic and Carolla. I just don't see them adding a performance turbo edition of the Elantra. Especially when they have the Veloster and Genesis coupe in the lineup.
if thats on regular fuel like it claims, imagine throwing premium in there. it would most likely make more power and get better mpgs.
