Its Advantages

Continuously Variable Transmissions provide definite advantages, especially where efficiency, fuel savings and comfort are concerned.

Any pressure put on the accelerator progressively changes the speed ratios by varying the diameter of the pulleys. So, the ratios don’t change all at once, but progressively and regularly, providing better performance during acceleration. As well, the CVT requires less fuel since the engine never revs faster than necessary, which also means less noise. In short, the CVT has none of the disadvantages of a manual transmission (for example, the power interruptions characteristic of such transmissions), and provides all the advantages of the classic automatic gearbox, without the inconveniences.
