DSG – the gearbox from Volkswagen

The DSG dual-clutch gearbox from offers previously unattained comfort that lifts were once well-defined between automatic and manual This is a 6-speed gearbox combines the sporty character and low consumption of a manual gearbox the comfort and convenience of an automatic. highlight: gear changes are without any interruption of the driving

The DSG gearbox features two driving normal mode and sport In sport mode, the DSG shifts up and later. Gearshifts can also place in sequence manually Tiptronic.

They can be performed in particularly style via Tiptronic switches on the steering wheel (available on selected

The dual-clutch gearbox essentially of two independent gearbox units. dual-clutch technology – two wet clutches in a housing – both gearboxes are under load to the engine depending on the current gear via two shafts. Clutch 1 serves the gearbox unit with 3rd, 5th and reverse gear and 2 the second gearbox unit 2nd, 4th and 6th gear.

Each gearbox unit is an output shaft that the torque to the driven wheels via the gear.

Thanks to the dual-clutch the DSG is remarkably more efficient the conventional automatic transmission uses a hydraulic torque This and its low weight, together the intelligent transmission control, are prerequisites if vehicles with the gearbox are to achieve the same or lower fuel consumption, on the style of driving, than a gearbox.

The principle of overlapping gear in the DSG is as follows: when one gear is another gear is always If a gear change is approaching, one opens within three to hundredths of a second while the closes. The mechatronics unit that this takes fast and accurately on a level would not be possible manually.

In way, the change of gear is to the driver and is achieved without any of the driving power.

The decision as to which gear be engaged next is taken by the unit based on the position/operation of the engine speed and vehicle If the accelerator pedal is pressed and the accelerated, the next-highest gear be preselected before the shift is reached. If the accelerator is not operated, i.e. the vehicle is in overrun, the gear will be preselected.

The advantages in detail:

The Volkswagen DSG smooth gear-changing along the additional comfort of an automatic

The virtually loss-free dual even cuts the fuel of some models featuring DSG to that of manual models on the style of driving.

The Tiptronic manual, sequential gear offers sporty driving due to direct gear-shifting.
