That power is sent through a new, seven-speed dual-clutch 'box - the first gearbox of its type in the segment. Hyundai points out that the Sonata Eco's 32 mpg combined rating offers a 10 percent improvement over the 2015 Sonata SE with its 2.4-liter naturally aspirated inline-four.<br /><br />38 mpg highway is pretty impressive, especially considering rivals like Toyota's electrified <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/camry/">Camry Hybrid</a> musters up only one better, with 39 mpg on the highway (though its 43 mpg city fuel economy is, obviously, much better). And while Hyundai still has not detailed news about a next-generation Sonata Hybrid, we've heard the company is still committed to offering one.<br /><br />The 2015 Sonata Eco starts at $23,275, not including $810 for destination. This represents a $2,125 price increase over the base Sonata, and the only option available on the Eco is the $4,100 Technology Package which includes a whole host of amenities, including heated leather seats, blind spot monitoring, proximity key and a navigation system with eight-inch screen among many other niceties. <a href="www.autoblog.com/2014/06/19/2015-hyundai-sonata-eco-38-mpg-official/#continued">Scroll down</a> to read the full details in Hyundai's official release.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/19/2015-hyundai-sonata-eco-38-mpg-official/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco nets 38 mpg from 1.6L turbo, 7-speed DCT</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/19/2015-hyundai-sonata-eco-38-mpg-official/">2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco nets 38 mpg from 1.6L turbo, 7-speed DCT</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 19 Jun 2014 23:25:00 EST.
