Transmissions come in a 6-gear manual and an 8-gear automatic version, thanks to the automatic transmission.
The new HI-MATIC automatic transmission has been designed to guarantee maximum performance and lowest running costs, whilst ensuring unbeatable comfort, superior performance and low fuel consumption. Thanks to the availability of 8-speeds, gear shifting is now faster and even more accurate than standard 6-speed transmissions, guaranteeing engagement of just the right gear at any engine speed in less than 200 milliseconds for unbeatable performance always at its best.
Electronic control also allows for two operating modes, which are functional to the specific mission needs:
• ECO – for smooth, low-speed gear shifting to enhance comfort and keep fuel consumption low.
• POWER – for faster, higher speed gear shifting to achieve more precise gear engagement and a sporty driving style.
The EcoSwitch function that modulates the torque, the EcoMac smart cooling system and the alternator that operates only in the energy recovery phase all contribute to a reduction in fuel consumption of 5,5%.
