Pros and Cons of the CVT Transmission

Pros y contras de la transmisión CVT

Here are the Pros and Cons of the CVT Transmission which is now equipped with a large number of models, so if you're considering buying a new car you should read this before to make a better decision. A Continuously Variable Transmission CVT, provides, among other things, a better gas mileage and a smooth ride, but as well as these benefits also have problems. The first thing to understand is how to work the CVT. In a few words, a CVT is an automatic transmission that, instead of using speeds (gears) fixed, used a metal strip that connects two pulleys, mimas that have a variable diameter, which allows the transmission to adjust the radius of the gear in infinitely to always grant the motion perfect. The video below explains this operation.

Pros and Cons of the CVT Transmission


Since you understand a little more about the operation of a CVT transmission, we can move on to the benefits that this offers. When you use less components, a CVT is cheaper to produce than a manual gearbox or automatic, this reduction of cost may benefit the consumer, who ends up paying less for a car that equip. Due to the ability to change radios constantly, the CVT maintains the power and torque of the car is always optimal, this not only results in better acceleration but also in a lower expenditure of fuel. This is also better when driving on the highway and maintain a constant speed so as to be on a rise, where both cars manual or automatic are suffering at the moment of changing gear.


Everything good has something bad, and the case of the transmission CVT is no different. To be honest the greater justification for these problems is that the CVT's are a relatively new technology but that is not developing to its full potential. The most obvious case of this is his lack of ability to deal with high power, this is due to the perception of the consumer about a CVT is a transmission to improve the fuel consumption and not suitable for a car of high performance that it takes away from excitement in the car does not need be any change. For this reason producers have been focused on developing this box only for compact cars, and low power. This is not to say that the CVT doesn't serve for that, as there are boats, trains, and tanks whose engines produce more than 1,000 horsepower and that use. Other disadvantages of PVA include its high costs of maintenance, since a breakdown can be very expensive in the best of cases, because that is its repair is very difficult and in many occasions it is better to change the entire box. Also, we cannot fail to mention the sound that they emit when accelerated and that can be very inconvenient as well as slow response when accelerating to fund in some occasions, especially in the older versions that have a metal band that slides up when the power is very high.
