Re: Nissan launches new 8 speed CVT on the 350 GT/Infiniti G35 (Hajduk)

quote:[HR][/HR]What's the point of having a CVT and limiting the number of gears?[HR][/HR]​
I think it's just for a "sport mode"... the actual number 8 seems a bit gimmicky, but it doesn't really matter because no power is lost between shifts (the engine never disconnects).
I would imagine there is some sort of "cruising" mode or "economy" mode since it's all just software anywhere (and software is cheap). That's where the CVT would shine as it's continuosly changing the ratio...
