For 2015 Hyundai introduced the seventh generation Hyundai Sonata.

Probably one of the best upgrades for the money is a cold air intake system from AEM. By reducing air intake tract restriction, and turbulence, an AEM cold air intake is able to increase horsepower, torque, acceleration, and provide better engine sound without requiring additional modifications or tuning.
