6-Speed electronic gear control gearbox

Six-speed electronic gear control gearbox which offers a choice between the comfort of automated operation or the pleasure of manual gear changing.

Two driving modes are offered:

- automated mode for automatic control of the gears by the gearbox, without any action on the part of the driver,
- manual mode for sequential changing of the gears by the driver using the gear lever or steering mounted control paddles.

With each of these two modes, a Sport function is available for a more dynamic style of driving.

With the automated mode, you can temporarily take control of gear changing at any time.

This gearbox provides you with additional functions:

- hill start assist,
- creep * (movement of the vehicle on releasing the brake pedal) in automated mode or reverse.

* Model fitted with the 1.6 litre e-HDi PEF 112 hp Diesel engine.
