Q) My wife and I love the DSG gearbox fitted to our Skoda Octavia for its quick, smooth changes and good fuel economy. Does any manufacturer outside the VW Group offer this type of gearbox?

A) The DSG (Direct-Shift Gearbox) is a semi-automatic gearbox available on a number of VW Group cars, including Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen.
Dual-clutch transmissions offer near-instantaneous gearchanges and theyre also more fuel efficient than conventional automatic gearboxes because less energy is wasted transferring the engines power to the wheels.

The DSG was the first dual-clutch transmission (where one clutch controls the odd gears and the other the even ones for super-fast changes) in the UK when it was fitted to the Audi TT from 2003. However, many newer VW Group models use a seven-speed version, rather than the six-speed system fitted to early cars.

  • The DSG maintenance service is a must every 40K miles on any VWs or Audis with the DSG transmission. This video will show you how to perform this service wi.
  • It concerns the transmission of chemical substances emitted by a composting plant. The question is whether a technological renewal changes the environmental impacts. 'CSD,i is the concentration change for pulse i due to subgrid diffusion, and is defined as = SG( C old-C Cioldd), where DSG = A('t)(D (Dx/'x ' 2+D +Dy/'y ' 2).
  • This type of transmission introduces further concurrency through communication. It is well suited for a distributed architecture, because if the receiver (the server) is located on a distant processor, the addition of the communication latency to the processing time may be significant.

Plenty of other manufacturers have since developed DSG-style gearboxes, with their own names and acronyms, and fitted them to specific models. These include:
BMW (DCT) 3 Series Coup, M3, Z4
Citroen (DCS) C-Crosser
Ferrari California
Ford (Powershift) C-Max, Focus, Galaxy, S-Max
Mitsubishi (SST) Evo X
Nissan GT-R
Peugeot (DCS) 4007
Porsche (PDK) 911, Boxster, Cayman, Panamera
Volvo (Powershift) C30, S40, V50

DQ500 DSG information. 7-Speed; Wet clutch; Stock rated up to +/- 600 Nm; E.g. Transporter, Tiguan, Q3, RS3 / TT and Kodiaq; The DQ500 (0BT) transmission is designed by Volkswagen AG based on the experiences afforded by the proven DQ200 and DQ250 transmissions. The DQ500 makes dual-clutch technology available for larger vehicles with high output engine configurations up to 600 Nm. Volkswagen’s Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) is not like any conventional transmission. Combining automatic convenience & manual precision.

Soon, Alfa Romeo will launch a twin-clutch gearbox called TCT in the Mito, and Mercedes-Benz will offer the SLS with its Speedshift box.
