Don’t be overwhelmed by dual-clutch systems. This video is sponsored by Luk, a Schaeffler brand.
The dual-clutch – or as some drivers call them “flappy paddle” – gearboxes have garnered a bad reputation. In an effort to fight driver resistance, some import automakers have gone so far as to drop them from their option lists.
Hyundai/Kia introduced a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) or Automatically Shifted Manual Transmission (ASMT) in the 2012 Hyundai Veloster. The dry, dual clutch transmission was first mated to the 1.6 L turbocharged engine and then with other four-cylinder engines found in various Hyundai and Kia models.
