Have they gone back to CVT? not using DCT? 🤔Thought the DCT was a good gearbox.

Either a six-speed manual transmission or (on the more powerful unit) a CVT automatic is offered. Nissan has gone from CVT to dual-clutch and back to CVT in the past few years, but claims the new transmission is more efficient and responsive yet avoids the traditional ‘elastic band effect’ - where the engine revs out of kilter with road speed - thanks to simulated stepped gear ratios.


https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/ ... n/qashqai/

This drivetrain comes in four flavours, as listed below, the most powerful version also being available with a more 'intuitive and intelligent' four-wheel-drive system that has five driving modes. It's also claimed to shuffle torque split more effectively, redistributing power to the rear wheels up to five times quicker than the previous set-up.

138bhp manual front-wheel drive
155bhp manual front-wheel drive
155bhp CVT (automatic) front-wheel drive
155bhp CVT (automatic) all-wheel drive

You'll have spotted that the auto is a CVT – whereas the current Qashqai used a DCT. Why's that? Nissan Europe's deputy director of passenger car vehicle evaluation, Peter Brown, told us that's because CVTs are increasingly getting better and less elastic-band-like. He said: 'We looked at customer feedback and neither the CVT or DCT was perfect. This new CVT will be the best of both worlds – offering a relaxed, smooth, seamless drive at low speed, but enough grunt at high speeds.

'There are variable numbers of gears with a CVT depending on speed and amount of demand, not just the standard seven or eight.'


I suspect it's cheaper too.

Well my previous QQ was a 1.2 Connecta CVT and my new car is a 1.3 Auto and it is much, much better than the previous CVT. I would be very reluctant to go back to a CVT.

Yes Geordieman I Had 1.2 CVT and now have 1.3 DCT I find it's better though I didn't have any trouble with the CVT the DCT just seems more refined.

DD41, My new QQ is also much quicker than the 1.2 CVT and I have also noticed it is much better mpg as well.
