  • Classic automatic gearbox: It will use a torque converter, which will control the gear changes, it’s the oldest technology, it has evolved quite a lot in the last decades (more gears and a better management of the gear changes).
  • Robotized automatic gearbox: This is a manual gearbox with a robotized mechanism that will change the driver’s action. This sort of gearbox is less and less common because they are considered very slow. We also quite often feel a coupling during deceleration.
  • Dual-clutch automatic transmission: This is the best automatic transmission, it functions on similar concept as the robotic transmission, but thanks to its dual clutch, you won’t have any more problems with slow speeds or increased fuel consumption. They are often equipped on luxury models.
  • Continuously variable automatic box: It is similar theory as on a scooter, a variator will come to control the differences between acceleration and motor speed, they are especially slow and tend to be unresponsive during the acceleration phases of your Skoda Enyaq.
