    Default Proton's Automated Manual Transmission

    guys proton is offering a newer automatic transmissin which is actually a manual one...

    this gearbox is basically renaults gearbox and they call it quickshift5 gearbox.. which is aviable in the Renault Clio..

    proton is offering this gear box in its savvy in malaysia..
    i hope this gearbox comes to pakistan..

    here is how it works..


    The Quickshift5/Automated-Manual Transmission (AMT) has 5 gears. There are 2 modes , a manual selection mode where you can switch through the gears sequentially by flicking the gear lever frontwards or backwards. The gearbox was derived from Renault’s normal 5 speed manual gearbox, but an electronic control module was added to it to operate the clutch electronically. The other mode is an automatic mode which shifts gears on it’s own and requires no intervention from the driver.

    Because the clutch control is computerized with precised timing, shifts are much quicker than any average driver can ever attempt with a normal manual gearbox and foot-operated clutch. The result is a driving experience that’s zippy and fun. The computer features some form of fuzzy logic which allows the auto mode to adapt to your driving patterns.

    Since the Quickshift5 is derived from a normal manual gearbox, it is lighter than an automatic gearbox thus improving fuel economy and performance.
