Depending on the engine variant, power transmission is handled by a manual five or six-speed gearbox or by the compact and lightweight DSG dual-clutch gearbox. It changes its six or seven gears at astonishing speeds and is exceptionally efficient. A freewheeling function is integrated into some versions to reduce fuel consumption even farther.
