Research the Subaru Lineartronic CVT Transmission at Hanson Subaru in Olympia, WA

What is the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission from Subaru?

At Hanson Subaru, we're excited to see the latest transmission technology from Subaru. Throughout our huge selection of new Subaru models, you'll find a wide variety equipped with the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission or CVT. This isn't like your traditional automatic transmission that changes between fixed cogged metal gears. Instead, the CVT found in Subaru models can vary the gear ratio between the engine and transmission with hydraulically operated adjustable pulleys and a chain link connecting them. This allows for stepless gear range for the optimal gear ratio in every condition. This means better fuel economy and precision performance whether you're passing a slower vehicle up a hill or merging with freeway traffic.

What are Some Advantages of the Subaru Lineartronic® CVT?

With an automatic transmission that's not hindered by a limited number of fixed gear ratios, you'll enjoy a variety of benefits. If you've ever been in a car going up a hill while the engine bounced back and forth between being bogged down or revving loudly, then you know that neither one is offering any acceleration while drinking extra fuel. With the Subaru Lineartronic® CVT, you won't have this problem since it will always be ready with the right gear ratio for the job. What's more, Subaru models equipped with the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission can be controlled manually with available paddle shifters that shift between pre-programed gear ratios. While other manufacturers are adding more gears to their traditional transmission engineering, Subaru is again raising the bar with their Lineartronic® CVT!

Why Should You Choose a Subaru for Your Next Vehicle in the Pacific Northwest?

When it comes to value, a wide range of established industry authorities agree that nothing beats a Subaru. However, getting more for your money is just the beginning of why Subaru continues to earn prestigious awards and an ever-growing reputation for being a vehicle worth owning. The acclaimed traction of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is found standard on nearly every Subaru model, and you simply won't find another engine like the SUBARU BOXER® engine for the money. The elevated ground clearance found on Subaru SUV and crossover models allows you to take your adventures farther, and the standard STARLINK™ infotainment technology keeps you connected without distraction. Subaru is also one of the safest names in the business, and we can hardly wait to tell you about the EyeSight® driver assist technology at Hanson Subaru serving Lacey and Tumwater, WA!
