The sportiness of a manual with the ease of an automatic.
DSG is the first gearbox to combine the advantages of both worlds without compromises — no interruptions in traction and maximum driving pleasure.
- Ease of shifting at the level of an automatic gearbox.
- Split-second gear changes, hardly noticeable to the occupants.
- Better driving performance with unbroken acceleration.
Not just another automatic
DSG is a groundbreaking ‘two-in-one’ concept where twin electronically controlled shafts manage gear selection, always anticipating your next shift. The two independent gearbox units are controlled by a mechatronics module that ensures one gear is always engaged and another preselected. The shifting occurs without interruptions in traction, in less than four-hundredths of a second.
Owing to the double clutch the efficiency of the DSG® is significantly higher than in a classic automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter.
