Audi Develops Seven-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

March 24, 2008

AUBURN HILLS, MI – The dual-clutch DSG automatic currently available in several U.S. Volkswagens and Audi's has earned great reviews for its smoothness and lightning-quick gear changes. Audi has now unveiled an entirely new seven speed, twin-clutch system built specifically for the luxury maker’s lineup, according to www.motortrend.com.

 

Like the six-speed DSG, the transmission will be dubbed “S-Tronic” in Audi’s lineup. VW recently rolled out its own seven-speed DSG, but Audi said its new unit was developed entirely in-house. Designed to work with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive and longitudinally-mounted engines, it will be offered across the maker’s mid-range model lineup. The gearbox offers fully automatic and sport modes, with manual gear-changing available via the shift lever or a rocker switch on the steering wheel.
