What is above ACEA A5? My guess is ACEA A3 since Hyundai allows a 5W40 in these engines.
I put Pennzoil platinum 5W30 which listed ACEA A5 on the jug.


If you searched the Elantra Sport or Veloster Turbo user group on Facebook, they all recommended 5W40 for our 1.6T for better protection. Also there was a TSB already released by Hyundai mentioned about it.
I have also switched from the Pennzoil Platinum 5W30 to Motul X-Clean 5W40.recently.

There is no Hyundai issued TSB requiring owners to use 5W40.

A5 doesn't cover LSPI resistance at all, that will be covered with A7/B7 (and C6).
d1G2 was the first major oil spec to address LSPI.

Since this is turbo, OP should forget ACEA A5 or API SN+ and just use ACEA A3 or C3 5W30.

Use ACEA A3 or C3.
You have Pennzoil Platinum Euro L in Wal Mart. It is MB 229.51 and better than ANY ACEA A5.

Yep. I use in my Toyota SIenna Mobil1 5W30 EP, ACEA A5.

What is overkill? HTHS of Mobil1 5W30 EP is 3, PP Euro L is 3.5. That is the most important thing for turbo application.
Also, PP Euro L is approved against MB 229.51, which means much better deposit control, NOACK limited to max 10% (PP Euro L is GTL based, so in 5W30 application NOACK is probably in range around 7%. BMW TPT 5W30 that is made by SOPUS has NOACK 6.8%. Some argue that PP Euro L is actually same oil as BMW TPT 5W30). So, I am not sure you can characterize lower NOACK, deposits etc. as "overkill."
On top of that, PP Euro L in Wal Mart is $22 for 5qt, while Mobil1 5W30 EP which is ACEA A5 is $25.
