Hyundai - VGT Badge
Explaination and usages
VGT

What does actually the VGT badge mean on vehicles by Hyundai?

Abbreviation of Variable Geometry Turbo. Hyundai and its sister company Kia use this label to mark their cars powered by common rail diesel engines (CRDi) equipped with a variable geometry turbo charger. The label was introduced at a time when the variable geometry turbines were less common and the same models were offered with less powerful fixed geometry turbines. However, the badge was still used even when all turbo chargers offered were of VGT type.
