As that old, violent saying goes—there’s more than one way to skin a cat. However, when you apply that saying to the world of green automobile technology, it’s a much sunnier sentiment, if you think about it. As Hyundai has demonstrated with the new Hyundai Sonata Eco, you don’t have to fill your vehicle with all kinds of electric or hydrogen-powered parts to get awesome fuel ratings and help save the environment.
While the normal Hyundai Sonata comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the Eco model comes with a smaller 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The Eco pairs that engine with a special seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to give drivers great torque and control over their driving experience. Thanks to this powertrain and stop/start technology, the Eco model gets 38 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.
The Eco model makes the Hyundai Sonata even more exciting and competitive in the mid-size market today. The Sonata, in whatever model or trim you opt for, also sports an awesome exterior style and a comfortable and roomy interior.
