MINI’s new Double Clutch Transmission combines two partial transmissions into one single housing. One clutch is responsible for the even gears (2,4,6) while the other controls the uneven gears (1,3,5,7 and reverse). While driving, the “second” clutch is open and ready to engage the next gear without interruption of pulling power – resulting in smoother, more seamless shifts.

A BETTER WAY TO MINI.

COMFORT, ENHANCED.

Parallel opening of clutches means less jerkiness that can be experienced with manual shifting.
Smoother shifting of gears makes for a more comfortable cabin experience.
The Crawl Function enables smoother idling in stop & go traffic.

POWER, UNINTERRUPTED.

Dynamic acceleration during upward gearshifts without torque interruption.
Faster shifts between gears without the need to activate a clutch pedal.
Steptronic function for optional manual selection of gears and hands-on driver control.

EFFICIENCY, OPTIMIZED.

Coasting function decouples drivetrain when accelerator is not engaged to conserve fuel.
7-speeds shift at lower rpms to maximize fuel efficiency.
Engine start/stop function disengages engine when car is completely stopped.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

Is MINI’s Double Clutch Transmission considered a Manual or an Automatic transmission?

Technically, it’s both. The actual gear selection by clutches is similar to a manual transmission but is controlled electronically without the need for a clutch pedal – like an automatic transmission. Gear shifts can also be controlled in Steptronic mode, where you can move the shifter forwards/backwards to select a gear.

I thought Double Clutch Transmissions were for “the race track” – how will it feel driving in the city?

MINI’s Double Clutch Transmission is strategically engineered and refined to offer comfort in city driving situations. It even features a Crawl Function to enable more comfortable idling in stop & go traffic.

Does a MINI John Cooper Works variant have a Double Clutch Transmission?

MINI John Cooper Works variants feature MINI’s traditional 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic transmission with the added features of Steering Wheel Shift Paddles and Launch Control!

Do the MINI Countryman ALL4 and MINI Clubman ALL4 have a Double Clutch Transmission?

MINI’s Double Clutch Transmission is built for Front-Wheel Drive vehicles and is not compatible with the All-Wheel Drive Clubman and Countryman. These models feature MINI’s efficient 8-speed Steptronic Automatic transmission as standard.
