Hyundai to unveil the GDI for hybrid models and also a 8-speed automatic transmission
At its annual International Powertrain Conference, Hyundai has unveiled two major new features.
The main one is represented by a new 4-cylinder 1.6-liter GDI engine able to deliver 105 hp dedicated to new hybrid and plug-in hybrid models that the Korean carmaker will launch in 2016.
It promises the same efficiency of the Toyota Prius 1.8 engine. The other novelty is a new 8-speed automatic transmission mated with front-wheel drive to reduce consumption by 7.3%.
