Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

SubTitle

A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is a type of automatic transmission that could be said to have an infinite number of gears. A CVT uses a pulley system instead of pre-defined gear ratios.
​ 
Traditionally, there are two pulleys with a belt connecting the two. The pulleys can adjust their width to make the belt turn faster or slower, depending on the speed of the vehicle and the torque needed.
​ 
CVTs are usually more efficient than standard automatic transmissions because they can seamlessly choose the ideal gear ratio. They also deliver a smooth driving experience without the standard engine revs and shifts most drivers are used to. Many drivers love the seamless acceleration.

The video at the top of the page gives a straightforward explanation of how a CVT works and you can see how the pulleys work together with the belt.

In general, CVTs are less expensive to produce, which translates to lower priced vehicles for consumers. Combined with the fuel savings, a CVT-equipped vehicle can help keep a lot of money in your pocket.
​ 
In the Mitsubishi lineup, there are numerous vehicles available with a CVT, including the Outlander Sport, Lancer, Outlander, Mirage, and Mirage G4. Come test drive a Mitsubishi today at El Cajon Mitsubishi to experience the benefits of a CVT today!
