The gearbox is part of the car's driveline (power transmission) between engine and drive wheels. The function of the gearbox is to change the gear ratio depending on speed and power requirements.

The car has an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and an electric motor for rear-wheel drive. Using the steering wheel paddles* it is possible to change gear manually. The driver display shows which gear position is currently in use.


To prevent damage to any drive system components, the working temperature of the gearbox is checked. If there is a risk of overheating, a warning symbol illuminates in the driver display and a text message is shown - follow the recommendation given.
