Volkswagen 7-speed DSG For Golf GTI In 2016
It is time to move the game up to the immediate rivals with a new DSG.
2016 is also the year Volkswagen will introduce its 10-speed DSG which will only initially be offered in the premium Volkswagen sedans. In other words, the 10-speed DSG will be reserved for high-torque, large-displacement engines, to keep fuel consumption (and all-important CO2 emissions) at the optimum level.
A VW insider says that there will be no durability problems with the new 10-speeder, but the fact it’s reserved for high-torque models which means its for larger cars hints that the new gearbox might be a bulky package.
From Volkswagen’s perspective the DSG is a more cost-effective solution than a conventional auto, because the cost for engineering and industrialisation is much the same as for any manual transmission.

By the way, a DSG (direct-shift gearbox) is a type of automatic gearbox with two clutches, which few other automatics have. While most cars come with one clutch, the second one works out which gear you’re likely to want next and gets it ready. A dual-clutch gearbox is able to change gear in just a few hundredths of a second.
