Seven-speed S tronic
The new seven-speed S tronic transmission impresses with its high degree of efficiency. The friction was reduced even more, the weight was lowered, and the oil supply was designed to be even more efficient – thus enabling very low values at engine idling speed. The two multi-plate clutches are arranged axially one behind the other, which reduces the drag torque and improves efficiency. The seven‑speed S tronic is available for all engines except for the top TDI model. It will enter series production for the 3.0 TDI with 160 kW.
