Automatic transmissions with Tiptronic, which are available with five or six speeds, have all the advantages and technical features of the automatic transmission. Tiptronic allows the driver to override the automatic mode by moving the lever into a second (Tiptronic) shift gate. Here, the gears are arranged one after the other as in a motorcycle or racing car sequential gearbox. In other words, changing up is achieved by pushing the gear lever forwards, and changing down by pulling the gear lever backwards. Gearshifting is also possible with padels on the steeringwheels.Tiptronic provides the convenience of an automatic and the driving enjoyment and sportiness of a manual gearbox. Safety, e.g. when overtaking, is provided by the automatic change-up feature when the engine speed limit is reached. The sporty driver benefits from changing down and using the engine for braking before a bend or when climbing hills.
