Alfa TCT (Alfa Twin Clutch Transmission) is a 6-speed automatic gearbox with two clutches from Alfa Romeo.
Available on the MiTo and the Giulietta, its sophisticated technology ensures continuous torque delivery and traction without loss of power while shifting.
From a technical point of view, the device consists of two gearboxes in parallel, each with its own clutch, which allows the selection and engagement of the next gear while the previous one is still engaged. Shifting is simply obtained by gradually switching the corresponding clutches, guaranteeing continuous torque delivery and therefore traction.
Alfa TCT interacts with all of the car's electronic systems. For improved road performance, according to driving conditions and driving style, the Alfa TCT is in permanent communication with the Alfa DNA selector and therefore with the:
• braking system
• steering system
• engine control unit
• vehicle stability control
Alfa TCT is always combined with the Start&Stop system. This technology allows a further decrease in fuel consumption and CO² emissions.
Alfa TCT can be used in automatic or sequential mode according to whether the driver wants a more comfortable or sporty driving experience. In sequential mode, gears are shifted by moving the gear stick to the UP and DOWN positions or by means of controls on the steering wheel (optional).
