Mini Convertible review - Latest soft-top is as fun as the hatch

  Mini Convertible review - Latest soft-top is as fun as the hatch Drop-top image may not be to all tastes, but Mini's latest convertible is as good to drive as the hatchThe Convertible’s engine range is shared with the Cooper hatchbacks. That means a 1.5-litre, turbocharged three-pot kicks off the range, alongside a 1.5-litre turbodiesel in the Cooper D Convertible and a 2-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol in Cooper S trim.

Top Automatic Transmissions . This article contains the information about the most popular automatic transmissions . We will review the most common problems encountered in automatic transmissions

Automatic transmissions have taken over as the prime choice for most drivers around the world. Convenience, hassle free shifting, and While automatic transmissions started out as simple gear changing mechanisms that were known for less than stellar fuel economy, years of development have

We love the manual, but these five are the automatic choice. © Microsoft ICE We love the manual, but these five are the automatic choice. Some car enthusiasts still loathe the automatic transmission, but these modern self-shifters are top-shelf units that even diehards can’t ignore.

Gone are the days of slow-shifting four-speed automatics in sports cars. We went through a brief era of the five-speed ‘tiptronic’ automatic, some with push-button steering wheel-mounted +/- buttons, but even John West would reject those.

Real advances came with the dual-clutch transmission design that dominates our top five, but there are also traditional torque converter automatics that hand out ratios as effectively as a casino card dealer.

An automatic transmission takes the pain of gear shifting out of your hands. Find out how an automatic transmission works and how it differs from a manual. If you wanted a top speed of 80 mph, then the gear ratio would be similar to third gear in most manual transmission cars.

1. Porsche 911 and Boxster/Cayman PDK

The combination of thumping upshifts, aggressive auto-timed downshifts and tightly spaced ratios is enough, but clearly such special Stuttgart engineering has resulted in transmission longevity too.

It’s best sampled beyond 8000rpm in a 911 GT3 RS, where you can even pull both paddles at once and uncouple both clutches to, “neutralise the driving behaviour of the vehicle when oversteering in a wet curve, thus redirecting additional cornering force to the wheels of the rear axle”.

Don't Panic, the 2015 Subaru WRX is Still a WRX

  Don't Panic, the 2015 Subaru WRX is Still a WRX We take a look at the 2015 Subaru WRX and address all of its most controversial changes, including its new CVT.But I'm here to tell you that everything's going to be alright, as first impressions from the auto show floor reveal that the new WRX hasn't lost its edge.

Unlike in an automatic transmission where you have this slip absorbed by the torque converter, this will directly cause wear on the clutch. Well because you were on the brakes the transmission might have assumed you were going to downshift next. Coming to a light, if it’s red but turns green, the

Daimler AG produces a number of automobile transmissions . Mercedes-Benz uses the number "720" to currently "725" to identify an automatic transmission . For manual transmissions G for gearbox and two digits are used. See G56 — 6-speed manual as an example.

2. Ferrari 458 Italia/Spyder/Speciale

Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder Speciale © Provided by Bauer Media Pty Ltd Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder Speciale The delicious 458 has just handed the baton to the newly turbocharged 488, but we are yet to drive one on local soil. When a transmission is working beyond 9000rpm with a flat-plane-crank 4.5-litre V8 engine it needs to be a good one, and the Ferrari seven-speed dual-clutch is as finely honed as expected.

Via the paddles, gearshifts are simply instant, up or down, and the throttle blipping and rev-matching plays to the hands (or hearts) of such a screaming engine.

It is a clever thing in the torqued-up turbo California T, too, the computers feeding in power to achieve throttle linearity rather than turning boost on like a light switch.

3. Audi R8 S tronic

2017 Audi A4 Allroad ups the Avant

  2017 Audi A4 Allroad ups the Avant Audi takes the wraps off the new A4 Allroad Quattro at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, based on the new A4 Avant wagon but beefed up for off-road duty.Can't decide between a wagon and a crossover? Audi offers both, of course, but it will also split the difference with the new A4 Allroad Quattro. It's based on the latest A4, but offers the extra cargo space, rugged look, and increased ride height of a crossover, without the added bulk that usually goes with it.Unveiled today at the Detroit Auto Show, the new A4 Allroad starts life as an A4 Avant wagon, but features a number of upgrades that ought to appeal to the elegantly outdoorsy among us.

For years, most automatic transmissions tended to have only two or three gears, like the two-speed GM Powerglide in this 1967 Chevrolet Nova and the three-speed Chrysler 727 Torqueflite in this 1968 Chrysler But starting in the 1980s and 1990s, four-and five -speed automatics started appearing.

Fast forward to this year’s second-generation model and a seven-speed dual-clutch unit joins contemporary standards both technically and in driveability.

Audi has stuck with natural aspiration and a mighty V10 for R8 round-two and it is a fine partner for the three-mode S tronic gearbox to work with. In its most track-focused mode it is possible to leave the paddles alone and let the computers deliver immaculately timed shifts.

4. BMW 228i/330i/340i

The way the manual mode allows downshifts that throw the tachometer right to redline is inspired in a world of autos preserving their insides with restrictive downshifting. If we hear one more beep one more time…

Unlike some dual-clutchers, this torque converter is impeccably smooth and smart even when trundling around town, yet the Clark Kent suit quickly gets stripped off when fast flying is called for.

5. Mitsubishi Evolution X

Mitsubishi Evolution X © Provided by Bauer Media Pty Ltd Mitsubishi Evolution X Back in 2008 when the Evo X launched the dual-clutch transmission was far from prevalent. Yet here it was in six-speed Twin Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) guise mounted underneath a humble Lancer.

It may not be the smoothest unit around – although it was like sheen on parquetry flooring compared with the GT-R and Godzilla’s similar design that launched a year earlier – but flick a toggle switch to its most aggressive setting, and heaven awaits.

Aggressive is perhaps an understatement to describe how brutal and immediate the TC-SST was in handing out downshifts when under brakes coming into a corner. It was so perfect the paddles were virtually redundant – and this was years before more expensive cars mastered the beauty of an aggressive sports auto setting.

Google wants your help to improve its automatic translations .
Google's ability to interpret and translate handwriting isn't perfect. The app, of course, is still hugely beneficial to Google. Any submissions -- no matter how few -- can be fed into its algorithms and used as a foundation for better, more accurate translations and analysis. The subsequent improvements should trickle down into Maps, Translate, Photos and conversational services such as Google Assistant. It's just a shame the company hasn't integrated some form of reward system -- something similar to Google Opinion Rewards or the Google Maps Local Guides program would go a long way to incentivizing contributions.
