What is a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)?

Some of the earliest automobiles were made with gears that could be changed out as the vehicle increased in speed. This principle of switching fixed gears has been used for over 100 years and is now being replaced by the advanced engineering behind the continuously variable transmission or CVT. Instead of using the fixed gears of the past, the CVT can vary the size of two pulleys, one from the engine and the other to the wheels. This allows for near infinite availability of gear ratios so the vehicle can remain at its peak power curve no matter what the road or traffic is doing. The other advantage is that the CVT is far more efficient since it allows the engine to better remain at a consistent speed. The Subaru Lineartronic CVT is also available with steering wheel paddle controls for manual control and more spirited driving.
