Then there is the Shift by wire tech which actually means that there are no gears mechanically connected between the gear selector and the gearbox under the hood. The gears are shifted via electronic signals.
The DCA also gets an Auto Park lock and a self-healing mechanism that filters out dust that enters the automatic transmission system, thus resulting in a seamless driving and ownership experience.
