Hyundai Motor introduced a third powertrain option for the 2015 Sonata.

A seven-speed, dual-clutch (automated manual) transmission will make its debut in the 2015 Sonata Eco, which will have a 1.6-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The Sonata Eco’s estimated fuel-economy rating is 32 mpg in combined city/highway driving, which Hyundai says is 10 percent better than what the 2.4-liter-engine 2015 Sonata SE will deliver. The MSRP for the Sonata Eco is $23,275.

Hyundai says the 2015 Sonata lineup will be available in summer 2014.
