    multitronic

    The continuously variable multitronic is an option for many Audi models with a longitudinal engine and front-wheel drive. Like all transmissions from Audi, it offers outstanding features such as low internal friction, a wide gear-ratio spread and high efficiency. The smooth multitronic nearly always allows the engine to operate in its optimal efficiency range. For dynamic drivers, it offers a sport program with closer gear ratios and a manual mode with eight stepped gears.
