The growing demand for a powerful transmission has driven Dacia to launch an automatic manual Easy-R transmission to its range for the first time.
Featuring a new design, this revolutionary transmission uses electromechanical instead of hydraulic technology for improved flexibility and swifter response, while the number of components has been cut by approximately 25 percent to deliver greater reliability and streamline servicing. To guarantee the best possible quality, the all-new Easy-R transmission went through 130,000 hours of bench testing and a total of 120,000km of road testing. All units are also thoroughly inspected as they come off the line.
The Easy-R transmission was developed to ensure optimal driving pleasure, specifically in built-up areas and traffic. The gear shifts are also automatic and jarring-free. Meanwhile, of certain interest in slow-moving traffic or when maneuvering, the system enables motorists to move forward at slow speed by lifting off the brake pedal.
The beauty of the Easy-R transmission is that it is intuitive and easy to learn. With an automatic-type lever, one of four modes such as D (Drive), N (Neutral), R (Reverse ) and M (Manual) can be selected, which is then indicated on the dashboard. The manual mode enables the driver to resume full control of gear changes—an important feature in instances where extra engine braking is required.
Dacia’s Easy-R transmission is more affordable than a traditional automatic gearbox. It is paired with Stop & Start to ensure low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions levels of a manual transmission. For a more economical motoring, the state-of-the-art system also has an ECO mode.
