YET ANOTHER WORLD FIRST
Pushing innovation beyond the bounds, we created an automatic transmission with no discernable steps or shifts. We called it LineartronicTM CVT. And it’s the reason our automatic models drive so smooth.
It’s the world’s first longitudinally mounted system for AWD vehicles. Unlike a conventional automatic transmission – which uses fixed gear ratios – our LineartronicTM CVT provides infinite variability between the highest and lowest available gears. So you now experience a smooth gear change, into any optimum gear for that moment.
LineartronicTM CVT is available in every model except Subaru BRZ.
