The new 2015 Sonata Eco gives a different angle to Hyundai's midsize sedan arguments, with the new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a smaller, 1.6-litre turbocharged gasoline engine delivering both, an expected combined fuel consumption of 32 U.S. mpg, equivalent to 7.35 litres per 100 km, 38.43 UK mpg or 13.6 kms per litre.


Prices of this new Sonata Eco will start from US$23,275 (MSRP, excluding $810 freight charge), up to US$27,375 with the Technology Package.

With its four-cylinder, 1.6-litre turbocharged gasoline (petrol) Gamma engine, generating an estimated 177 horsepower and 195 lb. ft. of torque (264 Nm, 27 Kg-m), Hyundai promises that the new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will help deliver an estimated 28 mpg in city driving (8.4 litres per 100 km, 33.6 UK mpg, 11.9 kms / litre) and 38 mpg highway (6.2 litres / 100 km, 45.6 UK mpg, 16.16 kms / litre).

The combined fuel economy of the 2015 Sonata Eco represents a 10.3% improvement over a 2015 Sonata SE powered by the 2.4-litre Theta II GDI (gasoline direct injection) four-cylinder engine, 14.2% compared to a 2015 Sonata Sport or Limited powered by the same 2.4-litre engine, and 23% over the 2015 Sonata 2.0l Turbo (figures available the Sonata consumption page).

In equipment terms, the 2015 Sonata Eco adds to the standard equipment of a Sonata SE (the Eco version is US$2,125 dearer than the SE), a chrome grille, side mirror-mounted turn signal indicators, automatic headlights, a 10-way power driver seat with lumbar support, stitching on the instrument cluster hood, chrome interior door handles, a 5-inch color touchscreen audio, a rearview backup camera and Blue Link telematics system.
