When it comes to double clutch transmissions, it is impossible not to mention the DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) of the VAG group.
In production since 2003 with the DQ250 unit, the VAG group was the first to install this type of transmission on production cars, gaining great experience in this area.
Since 2007, the DQ200 has been presented as a more compact and economical solution to the DQ250: a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox with dry lamellar clutches, capable of withstanding a maximum torque of 250Nm.
This type of unit allows significant savings in terms of production and maintenance costs. It can be installed on compact cars or city cars equipped with engines with limited power and torque, also allowing a reduction in consumption and an improvement in performance and driving comfort.
The engines, common to all models, are 1.0TSI, 1.2TSI, 1.4TSI, 1.8TSI, 1.4TDI and 1.6TDI.
