Multitronic is a stepless transmission originally launched by Audi in the late 1990’s. Based on the principles of continuously variable transmission (CVT), it seamlessly combines the effectiveness and economy of a manual gearbox with the convenience of an automatic transmission.
The smooth acceleration of the multitronic is a bonus over a conventional automatic gearbox and, as the engine remains running close to its optimum operating level, fuel consumption tends to be lower than with a manual gearbox.
Adapting to the driver’s style and adjusting the gearshift points accordingly offers enhanced performance. If for instance the driver prefers a more sporty driving style, the engine will rev higher through the gears, but if the accelerator is used more gently, the gearbox will change up earlier.
