What are the Advantages of a DSG Gearbox?

1 minuteread


A DSG tends to weigh but a traditional transmission because it doesn’t have a torque convertor, but is typically slightly heavier than a manual transmission, thanks to the extra weight from the mechatronics unit.

Because of the way it works, with ‘the next’ gear always pre-selected, DSG transmissions offer uninterrupted power delivery as you accelerate (similar to a CVT but with a greater torque capability) and a fast latency also as manual control. And, irrespective of what your mate might say, there’s no way he/she can shift his/her manual faster than a DSG, and torque-converter automatics, regardless of how clever, also are slower to shift than a DSG.

And, due to this pre-selection of gears, a DSG tends to be more fuel-efficient as there are not any wasted power losses as during a traditional automatic with torque convertor. In brief, a converter on a conventional transmission system does the work of a clutch on both a manual transmission and DSG; it’s a fluid coupling that enables the engine to spin independently (mostly) of the transmission. and then it’s because an automatic-equipped car isn’t fully disconnected, like in an exceedingly manual or DSG that you just get improved fuel efficiency from manual and DSG cars.


In Short:

  1. Better fuel economy (up to fifteen improvement) than conventional planetary geared transmission (due to lower parasitic losses from oil churning) and for a few models with manual transmissions.
  2. No loss of torque through the transmission from the engine to the driving wheels during up-shifts.
  3. Short up-shift time of 8 milliseconds when shifting to a gear the alternate gear shaft has preselected.
  4. Smooth gear-shift operations.
  5. Consistent down-shift time of 600 milliseconds, no matter the throttle or operational mode.
