Benefits of CVT 

A CVT is an automatic pulley transmission that is quicker and more potent than regular automatic transmissions. It is known to last longer and has higher durability. The clutch plays no role in a CVT configuration. It uses variable ratios and cone-shaped pulleys connected by an interceding belt to transfer the power from the engine to the wheels. CVT depends on how you drive, as your vehicle speed determines the movement of the hydraulic cylinder, which in turn moves the connected pulleys to find an optimum gear, increasing efficiency. Benefits of a CVT include lower repair costs, fewer parts, smoother acceleration without shift shock, and an improvement in fuel economy.

What is an IVT?  

Now that you’ve read about CVT, there is a much better version of transmission called intelligent variable transmission, or IVT, that has superior efficiency over automatic transmissions. It is a subset of CVT but relates more to the shift pattern of a manual transmission and is known to be more responsive. Some of the latest Kia models come with an IVT configuration.
