Things you need to know about CVT gearbox

CVT gearbox is a type of automatic transmission that can be found in many cars. It is more efficient than the traditional manual or semi-automatic transmissions because the CVT gearbox transmits power transversely.

A CVT gearbox has a ratio that is variable, with infinite variations of transmission ratios. This allows the vehicle to have an optimum setup for all driving conditions.

CVT transmissions are also more fuel-efficient than other types of automatic transmissions because they can reduce engine power while maintaining speed and torque, which conserves fuel.
