Six-Speed Automatic Transmission

• Hyundai's all-new six-speed automatic transaxle
   helps the company meet its goals of improving
   fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. Shifts are
   silky-smooth with an option of manual control
   through the SHIFTRONIC feature.
• Designed for transverse engine applications in
   passenger cars and CUVs, the new compact
   transmission puts Hyundai into an elite class of
   auto manufacturers who have designed their
   own proprietary six-speed automatic
   transmissions. The strength of the design is its
   unique layout which makes it smaller, more
   compact and lighter than any other six-speed
   transmission on the market today.
• The gearbox has no dipstick because it is filled
   with automatic transmission fluid that increases
   vehicle life under normal usage conditions,
   thereby reducing maintenance costs.
