How to Use Hyundai SHIFTRONIC®
Using the SHIFTRONIC® transmission, when equipped in a new Hyundai, is easy. All you need to do to get started is move the gearshift from the standard “D” or “Drive” position to the SHIFTRONIC® gear position. It only requires the quick flick of a wrist! Depending on the particular new Hyundai model that you have, there are a couple of different ways to shift gears with a SHIFTRONIC® transmission system:
- Regular Gear Shift: To downshift in the SHIFTRONIC® gear position, just pull the gearshift backward, towards the rear of the vehicle. To upshift, push the shift lever forward.
- Paddle Shifters: If your Hyundai also comes with paddle shifters, as some do, just press the “+” button on the paddle shifter when you need to upshift. Press the “-” button paddle shifter when you need to downshift. In vehicles with paddle shifters, you can use either them or the gearshift to shift between gears when in manumatic mode.
