I would like to know what type of automatic gearbox is in the Hyundai ix35 2.0-litre diesel AWD?

According to Hyundai, "The 2.0 CRDi automatic features an all-new six-speed self-shifting transmission that is smaller and lighter than any other six-speed automatic offered anywhere in world.
As well as the obvious economy and emissions benefits, the system uses a uniquely-shaped torque converter to reduce its overall size, and features three planetary gears and four pinion differentials.
Although it offers smooth and precise gearshifts throughout the rev range in fully auto mode, the gearbox can also be used like a sequential six-speed manual. A gate-type shift pattern allows the driver to choose between fully automatic or clutchless manual ‘Sport’ modes, which offers even more driver involvement and a more rewarding driving experience beyond the city limits."
I hope this helps.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
