What is manumatic transmission in cars? Features and technical parameters of the gearbox

Manumatic is the term used to refer to automatic, semi-automatic, and continuously variable transmissions with the function of manual gear shifting.

When choosing the manual mode, the driver can switch gears by himself by moving the lever in the ‘+’ or ‘-’ direction marked on the gearbox. On some cars, gears can be changed using the steering wheel paddles. The system provides a smooth transition from one gear to another. For changing the gear ratio, there is no need to press the clutch: this function is automatically performed by the system. When the driver applies brakes, shifting to a lower gear is also done automatically.
