sport mode delivers head snapping shifts and no mid-shift drops in boost. can also manual shift it if i need to hold gears.



all you manual and 5-speed auto bros are really missing out. :thumbdown:

i also forgot to mention that 6 speed auto has the strengthened angle gear.


sport mode throttle response is just too sick.

I'm sure we can set up a HUGE debate over what's what. I have the 6sp auto and am loving it since the day I drove it.

Above all, there are pros and cons to each, it just depends on how you like your R.

I took my GT to track couple times.
I didn't expect much but it did impressed me.
I chose an automatic because if I wanted a manual I wouldn't buy a luxury 4 door sedan.
That just contradict the purpose of owing a luxury 4 door sedan IMO.

I have to agree I like the auto in this car. The "S" makes it even nicer. As a true car enthusiast nothing is more exhilarating than that third pedal. Especially tied to a high performance drive train. My old Fiat X19 handled like a go-cart (had a go-gart engine) blast to drive. Chevy Monza with a modified 305 and a five speed. I could spin that thing anywhere. 01 Audi A6 stage 3 tuning 400 hp 450 tq 6 spd. Big sleeper. Banging gears in an AWD is phenomenal. Enjoy the automatic but you can't dismiss a standard so casually!

lol the most useless thread which is about to get locked

Everyone knows that manual transmission offer a better connection with the car. Who cares about head snapping shifts - it's all about figuring out that foot-leg-mind coordination - makes you a better driver. Anyone can just bush gas-brake-gas-brake-brake-gas-gas-gas-brake

Volvo is lacking in the latest DSG Auto gearbox, shifts as fast or faster than manual "And" offered by Volvo's rivials.

That said, in a world where Auto trans "Rules", I must comment that the uprated specs of the Volvo 6 Speed GTA in sports mode does its job surprisingly quite well.
