Your car has strut type front suspension. When you take a turn the coil spring that is between the suspension strut base and top of the fender well "winds up" under the load of turning. The ends of the coil spring usually have a plastic sheath at each end to prevent this noise. Perhaps try spraying some lubricant at the base of the coil spring and see if the noise goes away.
For safety also ensure the wheel lug nuts are tight.
