The eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission adapts to suit your driving styles, whether you’re comfortably cruising or driving more dynamically. Prefer the hands-on approach? Use the shortened gear selector lever or gearshift paddles on the steering wheel to change ratios.
This is also where the newly developed, highly effective converter clutch comes into play. The eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission delivers maximum efficiency and incredibly smooth gear shifts. In Sport mode, the gear shifts are configured for maximum performance. The fine graduation of the eight gears optimises acceleration, keeping the engine at maximum power and efficiency.
Launch Control enables the fastest possible acceleration, shifting automatically to make use of the engine’s optimum power delivery.
At motorway speeds, the additional eighth gear reduces the required engine speed, so reducing fuel consumption and engine noise.
