I know I know, why CVT or AT when you can MT, but there are some people who want to have thier car shift for them. I’ve been driving around my wife’s CVT and like it more than a regular AT. Now I dont know a whole lot about these but to me, it seems as if having infinite gear ratios would be much better than an 8 or 10 speed. The transmissions look to be smaller, which I would think would make them lighter, giving more to the all holy MPG. They also look to have fewer parts. This all feeds into simplify and add lightness method of thinking? So if what I’ve said is all true, why invest into these crazy 8 and 10 speeds?
also introducing shift points in a CTV boggles my mind.
