Engine Displacement refers to the total volume of air and fuel the cylinders of an engine can draw in a single cycle, as measured by multiplying the width of a cylinder (bore) x the height of the piston (stroke) x the number of cylinders.

Torque is a measurable amount of force that rotates around an axis, like a crankshaft. Much like the wattage of a light bulb, the higher the torque, the more energy is being produced, which translates, along with other factors like engine speed, into quicker vehicle acceleration.

A compression ratio is a way to measure the different volumes in an engine cylinder between when a piston is at the top of the cycle and the bottom of it. A higher compression ratio is desirable because it means an engine extracts energy more efficiently.

Valve Train describes the particular mechanism a given engine uses to control air and fuel flow in and out of the cylinders. This vehicle uses 16-valves (four per cylinder; lesser engines might use two) to increase the efficiency of fuel flow, in a Dual CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) configuration. By making all the valves continuously variable, rather than fixed, the engine can automatically adjust itself for maximum fuel efficiency without reducing performance.

Gasoline Direct Injection, a variant of fuel injection, takes traditional fuel injection a step further, placing gasoline directly into each cylinder (as opposed to using a single multi-point delivery system), thus further improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.

An electronic ignition reduces wear and tear on the overall ignition system by eliminating the more traditional mechanical moving parts.

Front-wheel drive means engine power is transmitted directly to the front axle, thereby pulling the vehicle, as opposed to the rear axle, which would push it. The result is improved traction and safer handling.

Having six speeds on a manual transmission, rather than the more traditional four or five speeds, allows drivers to have greater control over the driving experience, allowing them to fine-tune increases or decreases in power. Manual transmissions also have the benefit of slightly better fuel economy than an automatic transmission.

A six-speed automatic transmission increases engine efficiency, by fine-tuning the transmission’s gear selection whenever driver input or road conditions change. Hyundai’s exclusive SHIFTRONIC® allows drivers to override the system at will, upshifting or downshifting to increase acceleration or braking.

As part of the SHIFTRONIC® transmission, drivers can upshift or downshift gears with a single finger, never having taken their hands off the steering wheel, which helps maintain control.

The Final Drive Ratio refers to the number of rotations a motor requires to make the wheels do a complete rotation. Lower numbers (like 2.0) can signal increased performance.

A unibody-constructed vehicle is made from a single unit, combining the body and chassis, rather than bolting together separate pieces onto the frame. The result is increased vehicle integrity and stability.

A sport-tuned suspension combines firmer springs and heavy-duty shock absorbers to improve road feel, steering response and overall handling.

Rack-and-pinion steering is an efficient gear-driven direct system, which is particularly easy to use when power-assisted.

Sport-tuned steering lowers the ratio of steering wheel revolutions a driver must make to execute a complete turn, resulting in heightened steering responsiveness.

The smaller the turning diameter, the easier it is to maneuver a vehicle.

Disc brakes, especially when used on all four wheels, provide for better stopping performance and less fade versus drum-style brakes.

In the event of an accident, side-curtain airbags automatically deploy, helping to shield both front and rear passengers from broken glass, as well as offering additional protection in side-impact and rollover situations.
