Kia to launch new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic in 2015

Kia will introduce a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to its passenger vehicle range from 2015. The new transmission will replace the six-speed auto that is currently available across most models in the car maker’s line-up. The new seven-speed DCT has been designed primarily for vehicles equipped with engines up to 2.0 litres in capacity, though it will be versatile enough to fit a broad range vehicle sizes, from the Kia Rio city car (pictured below) to the Sorento SUV.
