For the thermal version, two types of integral traction are offered: AWD and AWD with vectoring torque. The new transmission makes it possible to divert up to 50 percent of the torque to the rear axle, such as undocking both axes when in favorable highway situations no integral traction is required. The disconnection is made by separating two clutches, one in the front axle and the other in the rear, so that the losses and vibrations are minimized by uncoupling the transmission shaft completely. This control over the two transmission clutches also contributes to a reduction in fuel consumption. In the AWD variant with torque vectoring function, it also manages the rotation between the wheels of the same axle, favoring that of the outer wheels in curve and consequently improving its efficiency and behavior. Both AWD options are combined with an automatic changeover by the 8-speed torque converter.
