8-speed Steptronic sport transmission.
The most comfortable way to save: the 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission not only ensures extra-smooth gear changes and reduces background noise at high speeds, but also significantly reduces fuel consumption.
Only the rev counter will reveal how fast and seamlessly the optional Steptronic sport transmission changes gear. The individual gears are finely graduated so that the change from third to fourth gear, for example, involves a smaller rev interval for the engine and the transmission process itself takes place almost imperceptibly. At the same time, the engine is always held at the performance level at which it can optimally use its strength and efficiency.
The eighth gear reduces the number of revolutions at high speeds, thus lowering fuel consumption and engine noise. The system is supported by the newly developed and more efficient converter clutch – even when you switch to manual gear change.
