► The 6-speed configuration has been achieved by using 2 planetary gear units, creating a 6-speed automatic transaxle.
► A Ravingneaux type planetary gear unit is used as the rear gear unit. The gear unit consists of pairs of sun gears (front and rear) and planetary pinion gears (long and short) with different diameters within a single planetary gear.
► The centrifugal fluid pressure canceling mechanism is used in the C1 and C2 clutches that are applied when shifting between the 1st to 6th gears. Refer to CH-51 for details.
► The shapes of the grooves in the clutches and brake linings have been optimized in order to reduce drag during clutch and brake operation.
