MINI gets faster gearshifts for increased driving fun
MINI has just released information on their new type of transmission. Extremely fast gear changes, a high degree of shift comfort and optimised efficiency – these are the benefits of the 7- speed Steptronic automatic transmission with double clutch, available for the MINI 3 door, the MINI 5 door and the MINI Convertible. It is offered in conjunction with selected engine types and as an alternative to the standard 6-speed manual transmission. The new double clutch transmission provides impressive shift dynamics for enhanced driving fun while at the same including all the comfort features of an automatic transmission. The new shift design looks more like a smart phone and this is probably the direction Mini designers wanted, with every human wanting and having a smartphone in their hand more than ever before.
