A DSG (direct-shift gearbox) is a type of automatic gearbox with two clutches, which few other automatics have. While most cars come with one clutch, the second one works out which gear you’re likely to want next and gets it ready. In theory, this means that the gearbox is always prepared for your next move, so the gear shifts are noticeably quick and smooth. It’s sometimes also called a dual-clutch gearbox, twin-clutch or DCT, although some manufacturers have their own name for it.
Sensors in the gearbox constantly measure a whole host of things, including how fast you’re going, how hard the engine is working and the position of the accelerator, to work out the optimum gear and shift point. How you’re driving and the driving mode you’re in (if your car has different modes) will also help the gearbox work out when to change. A dual-clutch gearbox is able to change gear in just a few hundredths of a second.
