I've driven a CVT before, a long time ago and I really didn't like it - no engine braking, "wind up the rubber bands" feeling each time you put your foot down.

The DCT doesn't feel like that at all - if you kick down it's just instant oomph (or at worst maybe 1/2 second delay while it sorts out a gear), and when you pull away normally it's just smooth and comfortable. And with better fuel economy (which is a pretty good idea these days) thrown in.

Weird - but I'll get used to it and probably wonder why I ever drove a manual. Big Grin | :-D
