What is Continuously Variable Transmission?

Last updated 5 years ago

While many of today’s cars have manual or automatic transmissions with fixed gears, a select few can be equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Instead of using gears, CVTs use a belt and pulley to produce an infinite number of gear ratios. With this design, CVTs are able to maximize delivery of power while minimizing the exertion placed on the drivetrain and powertrain. CVTs are also very fuel efficient transmissions, which makes them ideal for drivers that don’t mind giving up traditional gears in exchange for a fuel-efficient, cutting-edge transmission.

To experience a CVT in a new or used Honda, come to Brown’s Arlington Honda for a test drive. Currently the Honda Civic, Accord, and Insight hybrid can be equipped with a CVT. Call us at (703) 522-8808 or visit our website to browse our selection of new and pre-owned Honda vehicles before you visit the dealership.
