Automatic DSG Transmission
Volkswagen Automatic DSG Transmission

The sportiness of a manual with the ease of an automatic.

DSG is the first gearbox to combine the advantages of both worlds without compromises — no interruptions in traction and maximum driving pleasure.

It gives:

  • Ease of shifting at the level of an automatic gearbox.
  • Split-second gear changes, hardly noticeable to the occupants.
  • Better driving performance with unbroken acceleration.

Not just another automatic

DSG is a groundbreaking 'two-in-one' concept where twin electronically controlled shafts manage gear selection, always anticipating your next shift. The two independent gearbox units are controlled by a mechatronics module that ensures one gear is always engaged and another preselected. The shifting occurs without interruptions in traction, in less than four-hundredths of a second.

Owing to the double clutch the efficiency of the DSG® is significantly higher than in a classic automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter.

Performance

The modern engine technology in Volkswagen models is characterised by economy, high torque and power. It is crafted for you who loves driving and drives a lot, but still want to keep your consumption down.

The TDI badge identifies all diesel-powered models featuring diesel direct injection and a turbocharger. The TDI engines are known for their fuel economy, low emissions, high pulling power (torque) and outstanding power efficiency. The engine keeps noise to a minimum, while hydraulic engine mounts ensure smooth, low-vibration running.

Xenon headlights make night driving easier, thanks to the fact that the spectrum of xenon light is similar to daylight, thus providing a high level of safety. With low energy consumption, the durable bulbs last for the vehicle’s entire service life. Xenon headlights also deliver considerably more light than halogen headlights and make night driving, particularly in poor weather conditions, safer and less tiring for the driver’s eyes.

Modular Transverse Matrix

Modular Transverse Matrix platform, known as the MQB, for the Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen brands worldwide. A thousand engineers at Volkswagen and many thousands more engineers at the suppliers have been involved in one of the biggest development initiatives in the creation of the matrix platform system. Everything has been optimised to ensure efficiency, safety, comfort, convenience, design and driving pleasure, always.

The forward relocation of the front wheels results in especially balanced proportions in the design, plus the optimised use of space for the vehicle's occupants. In contrast to the platform concept, a modular matrix principle opens up much more scope for the design of all sorts of vehicles, including emotional niche models.
