All complete sets are delivered exclusively with a forward drive, and here rotation can be transferred through МКПП and АКПП in case of petrol motors. These designs have 6 gearshifts. But with a diesel engine there is a new DCT robot with a dual clutch function. This significantly reduces the time it takes to switch gears.
In addition, torque is transmitted more effectively by dividing by 7 gears. For comfort when driving on roads with poor quality, an independent suspension with springs responds.
