Damnit, the LC/LS 500h bullshift in all modes, apparently

Direct link to 1:45 in the video if it didn’t go there.

I’ve posted about the fake shifting of the Toyota Multi-Stage Hybrid system before, but I’ve seen claims that it doesn’t do that in Comfort or Normal modes, only the Sport modes.


This video was shot in Comfort.

It’s doing it.

Make your CVT-like transmissions be CVT-like, damnit, manufacturers! Especially, like, in the LS, which is meant to be an ultra-smooth luxury sedan, why would you even think about faking shifting in Comfort mode on that?
