Anyone know anything about the auto gearbox in Hyundais? Probably the i10. Are they fairly robust?

My folks wrote their car off before Christmas. They need an auto box.

Thanks

If you're speaking about what will be utilized in the DCT i30N; the new automatic that will be utilized in the Veloster N and i30N, will be a wet clutch setup. A completely new unit, not shared or utilized in any other Hyundai.

The current unit which is shared by most of the 2.0/T and below Hyundai's is; a DCT dry dual clutch setup and a standard converter unit. They are robust for use in the 2.0 theta engine and below. It's not adequate for anything above a 2.0 theta engine.

The i10 is equipped with four engines variants;

1.1 liter three cylinder U2 CRDi diesel.
1.2 liter four cylinder gasoline.
1.0 liter three cylinder LPG.
Electric

The i10 is equipped with both MT and AT. The auto is a standard converter unit uses with the 1.2 engine variant. Supposedly, a great little town car.

Yes, not talking about the new i30N. Just talking about the i10, or even ix20. The folks need something a bit taller as my Mum finds it difficult to get into low seats. And definitely Automatic.

CVTs are the most efficient ones, yes. That's why Toyota also uses them in basically all of their hybrid cars. Problem with them is however that they will always try and keep the engine at optimal RPM for the currently desired driving style.

When you accelerate hard, the RPM goes up and stays there, kinda lika a moped. Problem with CVTs is that they are expensive and complicated to maintain, because of the way they're built:
