In addition, efficiency studies performed during research and development reveal significant increases in fuel economy with eight forward gears versus six, which is what’s typically used by other luxury and non-luxury makes alike.
Hyundai‘s innovative design incorporates the use of over 130 new transmission technologies. The transmission uses four independent internal clutches for smooth operation when shifting between gears, and is mated to the engine via a single clutch mechanism, versus a dual clutch system.
