CVT continuously controls the O-pulley diameter and changes the gear change ratio.

CVT makes for optimal tuning between the smaller pulley piston, reducing flow amount of oil pump, and the direct control torque converter by which an efficient engine output transfer and a smooth ride are realized. Based on accelerator travel information from actual drivers under actual driving conditions, the system controls to obtain the driving force in accordance with the driving situation, at the optimal efficiency point of the engine and the CVT. This enables a supple and smooth driving feel under all driving conditions while also achieving low fuel consumption.
