New control logic improves acceleration feel when starting off, and improved shift feel makes this a stick shift you want to use. Because the launch gear is handling the higher input load at launch, the size of the CVT’s belt and pulley components could be reduced, yielding shifting speeds that are 20 percent faster than in a conventional CVT.
