How does D-CVT compare to others? Take Myvi as an example

Wapcar Automotive News – Can’t imagine how it works? It doesn’t matter, because you will definitely feel the difference if you have experience with 4AT. Immediately, the Myvi feels much easier to drive around town and many people will be surprised at how easy it is to achieve highway speeds. Now, we wouldn’t say the 4AT was at fault for holding back the Myvi’s performance—the king didn’t get its rep because of the slowness—but you should feel less drag with the CVT. Suffice to say, the powertrain feels “lighter”. The pleasant surprise does not stop at 110 km/h. 

In spite of the charming Perodua Myvi colour, it boasts the strong power.The new Myvi’s unchanged 1.5L engine revs to just under 2,000 rpm at our highway speed limit, which is incredibly low, almost like a turbocharged car. with the multi-speed gearbox. We tested and the pre-renovated 1.5L version with 4AT revs up to 2,750 rpm at 110 km/h. That’s a big difference for the same engine, and it transitions into a more relaxed engine state with reduced noise. 

A great bargain on long road trips. If the new Myvi’s NVH levels look better, it’s 100% the cause of the gearbox change, as no other specific NVH measurements were taken. It also means that when it rains, the sound of water splashing from the rear wheel arches – beginners might panic, thinking there’s a leak somewhere – will be heard.

The powertrain has a new composure on the road but when it comes to acceleration ‘into gear’ is very good, easier than before. Again, this “lightness” appeared.

Now Perodua claims that with the D-CVT, the Myvi is 20% faster in the 0-60 mph sprint, currently at 11.5 seconds for the 1.3L and 10.2 seconds for the 1.5L. In practice, and certainly in motion (starting to roll), it seems like a car is faster than the 10.2 seconds suggested. And that was before using the “Power” button on the steering wheel for the 1.5L model. As on the Ativa, pressing it gives access to the engine’s maximum power. We don’t really need it.

Another big claim to complete win-win is that the fuel economy of the CVT is 5 times higher than that of the 4AT – the 1.3L now has a claimed combined FC figure of 22.2 km/l ( compared to 21.1 km/l) while the 1.5 L is good for 21.1 km/l (from 20.1 km/l). We managed to meet the 1.3L demand in our 1.5L without too much effort (90-110 km/h) and when it was on a long highway journey (a stretch of road). other on less restrictive highways that allow us to hit 19 km/l ), I’ll bet 16-17 km/l can be achieved in mixed driving with some traffic. We’ll have to confirm this with a daily commute in the city, but the Myvi FL’s cruise economy is fantastic.

Remember that although CVT enhances Myvi’s FC, it comes from a good base. Even with the 4AT, the Myvi far outstrips the Proton Iriz in terms of performance, and that’s thanks to the modern and modern DOHC, Dual VVT-i NR engines. The 1NR-VE 1.3L version produces 94 hp and 121 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, while the 2NR-VE 1.5L version produces 102 hp and 136 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. minute. Both have Eco Idle auto start-stop mode.

It occurred to me recently that the CVT – which is a bad word for some car enthusiasts – is in fact the dominant automatic transmission in our department. Because manual passenger cars are sold in small quantities, the CVT is the main gearbox on cars, from time to time. Not in America or Europe, but certainly in ASEAN.

Think about it. The Southeast Asian car market is dominated by Japanese brands, and for Toyota, Honda and Nissan, the CVT is the default transmission, at least for compact passenger cars. Honda Malaysia’s entire product line – from City Hatchback to Accord – is CVT only and UMW Toyota’s domestic product line is CVT to C segment. Nissan Almera has switched to CVT for N18 generation. Proton Iriz/Persona has been CVT since day one.

With a market-leading and best-selling CVT model in the country, the continuously variable automatic transmission is now the undisputed majority in Malaysia – so if you still consider it a ‘replacement’ ‘, you either live in the past or belong to the kayangan caste because CVT is not a thing in the premium segment. For the rest of us, get used to it if you haven’t already. Honda City, Toyota Vios/Yaris, Nissan Almera and Proton Iriz all use CVT

But not all CVTs run and feel the same. In fact, the D-CVT looks a lot like today’s CVTs, which means it’s linear and responsive, though it doesn’t mimic the step-by-step feel of an automatic torque converter like some Toyotas CVTs. .

If you’re from Proton CVT, congratulations on the quantum leap. Although the feedback service has improved a lot compared to previous versions, the latest Iriz/Persona Punch CVT still has much to look forward to. That’s especially bad on the highway, where the engine continues to hum depending on travel speed; you will hear it and feel the vibrations on the steering wheel, which becomes tiresome. While Proton was nervous, Myvi was calm and rested below 2,000 rpm. Of course, if you step on the gas, the engine responds with a loud hiss. That’s just nature and I personally think that’s overrated when it comes to CVTs – doesn’t the AT make a loud noise when reversing? Either way, having a progressive right foot and staying motivated will give you quick, serene progress.
