What many companies might call old technology, Mazda finds a way to reinvent and improve in as many ways as possible. The Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, and Toyota Rav4 Hybrid all use CVT transmissions. If everyone in the segment is doing it, surely there's a reason, right? Mazda has their own plan, with uniquely developed automatic and manual transmissions for their lineup. This video will focus on Mazda's automatic transmission style, a 6 speed planetary box with a torque converter, but also some very clever implementations to improve efficiency and driver feel.

    This is why I like mazda. They always do things a little differently. It's rare to see a company of that size still willing to try different things. Super cool!

    My 2017 Mazda6 is the best overall car I've ever owned, and I've owned a LOT of cars! Mazda just gets it, and the day they finalized their divorce from Ford is the best thing to ever happen to that wonderful little company.

    I'm a Honda guy and in 2014 I was going to buy an Accord. Hated the CVT and bought a Mazda 6. 100,000 miles later I've been very happy with my decision. I will not buy a CVT.

    You need to know one fact - NOBODY can fix a CVT transmission so when you have a problem it must be replaced AT YOUR COST. I will never buy a vehicle with a CVT.

    People trust toyota. They buy anything from them. Mazda still have to gain more trust from car buyers.
