    A Few Surprises from US 2018 Mazda CX-5

    The Skyactiv Auto is a traditional planetary with torque converter. What’s unique is that they keep the converter locked the majority of the time which contributes to that connected feel like a DSG. I agree is a very nice and refined transmission.

    I do wonder if the Mazda automatic is a true conventional. It shifts like a dsg but I know that it is not. Mazda incorporated a lot of ideas from various transmissions when they designed this one. It is a beauty though.
