There are several possible possibilities, as these are kind of noisy cars. Failed strut mounts and bearings are a common source of noise when turning. Wheel bearings also make noise while turning when they fail as well. It's also possible the final drive (differential on a FWD car) is making noise inside the transmission, and only makes noise when it's allowing the axles to turn at different speeds, such as when going around corners. It could also have failed engine mounts, failed suspension bushings, or ball joints. Because there are so many potential sources of a noise while turning, I would suggest having the car noise diagnosed by a qualified professional, such as one from YourMechanic.
