No automatic rev matching. You can however blip the throttle when you downshift to avoid jerking the car. With enough practice, you can make it very smooth and useful for engine braking.I noticed the new shift gate on the manumatic (GearTonic). Any idea if Volvo improved manual downshift so they match engine revs? I'd like to see more engine braking when shifting from 5-4, 4-3, etc.
