Jacob Burford Feb 28, 2013
Sheesh! Gears are getting out of hand!

Awkward moment when your car has 4 gears and does like 7mpg lol

vv A new transmission vv
Jack Howard Feb 28, 2013
And what happens when this car has high mileage and the transmission becomes delicate?
Jason Brown Feb 27, 2013
More gears are to come. Hyundai and BMW have been working on 10 speed and even up to 12 speed transmissions. Stricter EPA laws are forcing manufactures to squeeze more mileage out of every component of a vehicle.

And dads truck only has three....

The 6 speed was probably an automatic too
Noah Roberts Feb 27, 2013
So we are killing a 6 speed manual for a 9 speed auto? Fuck logic
Ethan Amo Feb 27, 2013
I think automakers are going crazy now...8 gears was quite enough I think 9 is unnecessary
Jacob Burford Feb 28, 2013
Agree Matt! This is extremely sharp looking, and an overall great SUV! I've driven it and it feels like a car on the road but still has the capability of a proper land rover!

I would be lost half way through.

Automatic transmissions at like Apple Products.

Make a ten. 5 low 5 high. May confuse the masses though. F it... It's all about maintaining power and adhering to the all might MPG

I would never buy it with a manual and I love manuals
Noah Roberts Feb 27, 2013
Goodbye manuals :(

I like the evoque, and I do helped my friend to buy one. But the top line model of evoque is somewhere in the territory of ML and X5, no to mention its more than a GLK,X3 and Q5.

How's it over priced? It's base price is right with all the other lux SUVs it competes with? Anyways, I think it's an awesome car! Best looking SUV on the market!
Carlos Dorantes Feb 27, 2013
Overpriced & Overrated!
Description: The new gearbox is 6mm longer but 7.5 kg lighter than the outgoing transmission. Offering improvements in economy and responsiveness, as well as a reduction in noise at high cruising speeds, the new 9...

@Dale youre forgetting the race for highest wattage sound system. The germans went crazy for a while
Dale Schroeder Feb 28, 2013
First it was the race for most horsepower. Then it was the race for the highest top speed. Now we'll see the race to have the most forward gears. First to 100 wins!
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Feb 28, 2013
I can understand maximum 8 speed! As the BMW unit is perfection! But 9????
Ryan Lopez Feb 27, 2013
Six speed has and does everything
Noah Roberts Feb 27, 2013
This is evolution?
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Feb 27, 2013
At just under 70mph (110kph) revving at 1.8k revs! My 6speed 5 series does that?? What's the point then of anything over 8-speed? 9 getting ridiculous... Until someone make 10, 11, 12..... Lol
