Both engines have a timing chain rather than a timing belt – the chain has a lifetime service life which saves on maintenance costs of changing a belt.
Also, do Hyundais have timing belts or chains? As of 2013, all Hyundai engine models have a chain. The chain runs inside the engine and is lubricated by the engine oil. Unlike a timing belt that needs to be replaced after a certain amount of travel due to wear, the chain doesn't require special maintenance or replacement at a certain interval.
