  • An iMT is a hybrid between a standard manual and an automatic gearbox.
  • It consists of a two-pedal, clutch-less system which allows the driver to manually shift the gears, but without the need of pressing the clutch.
  • The iMT uses an intention sensor integrated into the gear lever which severally informs the transmission control unit when the driver is about to switch between gears.
  • The TCU then marks a signal to the hydraulic actuator which automatically engages and disengages the clutch plate according to the gear shifting pattern.

What about the new Sports package?

  • Along with the iMT transmission, Hyundai has also introduced a new sports package available with the SX, SX+ and SX(O) variants equipped with either the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine or the 1.5-litre diesel engine unit.
