Subaru Lineartronic CVT Performance & Design Information serving San Francisco, California

Subaru Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

The Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission is available on Subaru Impreza, Legacy, and Outback model vehicles at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City.  This innovative technology was engineered to work seamlessly with the SUBARU BOXER® engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to help reduce fuel consumption. The system is designed to provide more efficient transitions between higher and lower gear ratios and because the Subaru Lineartronic CVT system works in tandem with the engine, it eliminates hesitation and preserves vehicle momentum that is often lost with conventional automatic transmissions. This, paired with its lightweight and compact design, keeps the vehicle as agile as possible and optimizes gear ratios, ultimately providing you with higher fuel efficiency.

Automatic Transmission with Manual Shift Mode

The Subaru Lineartronic CVT also gives you the option of a simulated six-speed manual transmission. In the Manual Shift Mode you are treated to paddle shifters that are mounted for fingertip control. With this mode you are given the power to select the gear ratio that best suits your driving situation, resulting in a sharper and sportier driving experience. And with a continuously variable transmission, your vehicle often requires less maintenance than ones with conventional automatic transmission.
