Auris M/M Details
The latest generation MultiMode transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifts is available on the D-4D 90 and 1.6 Dual VVT-i engines. The system offers two driving modes: an automatic for easy driving, especially in town and a manual gear shift for more sporty driving conditions.
In manual mode the gear shifts are made either by sequential shift of the floor mounted lever or by the paddle shifts on the steering wheel. The paddle shifts can also be used to override the automatic gear selection for temporary driving in manual mode.
Fuel economy with the MultiMode transmission is excellent thanks to the optimised control system and highly efficient direct gearing, without resorting to a torque adapter.
All manual transmissions will be equipped with the Gear Shift Indicator. This feature indicates to the driver when to shift gear up or down for optimal environmental performance. The system takes into account the driving conditions, including the level that the accelerator pedal is pressed and the vehicle speed. The Gear Shift Indicator may result in 5% fuel consumption reduction compared to normal gear shifting, though the potential for improvement is, of course, dependent on the driver's personal driving habits.
Through this remarkable choice of advanced technology engines and gearboxes, Auris genuinely offers engaging driving experience.
