Dual Clutch Transmission

No More Shift Delays

Shift delays are now an artifact of history. The transmission uses one clutch for even gears and another for the odd gears. The next gear is already pre-selected, and the result is smooth, quick gear changes you’ll almost never notice.

Engine

2.0L Turbo

An all-new turbocharged 2.0L engine pumps out 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.[*] A 7-speed, dual-clutch transmission efficiently handles all that power by intelligently pre-selecting both lower and or higher gears before a shift even needs to be made. It’s an innovative technology that increases both performance and efficiency.

Intuitive Traction

The available AWD system monitors wheel-spin, throttle position and vehicle speed and sends up to 50% of the available power to the rear wheels for better traction in adverse conditions. When AWD is not required, 100% of the power goes to the front wheels to maximize efficiency.

Handling Dynamics

Sharpness with Smoothness

Sporty yet forgiving, you can feel the attention paid to tuning the shocks. They hold the vehicle tighter as you take turns while also softening the feel of rough pavement and bumpy roads, delivering a rare balance of responsive handling and a smooth ride. Engineers even reduced suspension noise to keep the ride comfortably quiet.
