LINEARTRONIC CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION

Smooth, seamless gear changes

LINEARTRONIC CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION

SUBARU’s Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) continuously adjusts the gear ratio automatically, with no loss of momentum. Adaptive Control automatically shifts to the best gear ratio for the conditions and the way you drive. CVT lets the engine run at the ideal speed, increasing power and responsiveness whilst reducing use of fuel.

Changing between conventional fixed, stepped gears is slow and inefficient. In normal manual or automatic transmissions, engine power is momentarily disengaged to change gear, compromising performance. Driving a SUBARU is quieter and smoother.

LAG-FREE PERFORMANCE

Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses a chain instead of a belt, offering a greater span of overall ratios. This provides a faster response to throttle input and improves performance and efficiency. Acceleration is responsive, instant and lag-free thanks to advanced torque control. An active torque-split AWD system monitors traction conditions, the transmission and driver inputs, continuously controlling and optimising the torque distribution from front to rear.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. PLUS MANUAL PADDLE SHIFTERS

Automatic transmission is a joy. But sometimes, like when climbing hills or overtaking, you may want to get hands-on. Paddle shifters** on the steering wheel let you change gear yourself. And simply settle back into automatic transmission whenever you want.
