Six-Speed Automatic Transmission with Manual Shift Mode

These engine technologies are combined with a six- speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode as standard equipment. This transmission provides an optimal balance between acceleration, ride comfort and quietness. Broad gear ratios ensure lively acceleration and smooth, powerful cruising speed, while the top two gears are laid out as overdrive, which helps save fuel when driving on the motorway. In automatic mode, it delivers a sporty shift feel and quick response to pedal input, and near manual-like shift characteristics in manual shift modes, for the best of both worlds.
