No CVT for Hyundai

As continuously variable transmissions (CVT) gain popularity across North America, Hyundai plans to work on dual-clutch transmissions instead.

''Dual-clutch has a better future with us. It has better fuel economy advantages. It’s better for the enthusiast driver. It matches [our product philosophy] better,'' said Mike O’Brien, vice president of product planning at Hyundai Motor America.

The Korean automaker currently offers a dual-clutch transmission in the Veloster coupe only. However, based on O'Brien's comments, expect other Hyundai models to follow suit in the next few years.
