When you’re searching for a new car, fuel economy ratings may very well be one of the most important factors to you. This is probably why so many automakers are taking steps to make vehicles more efficient than they’ve ever been. One piece of newer equipment many vehicles offer these days is the Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT. A CVT, unlike regular automatic transmissions, doesn’t really shift between gears but rather adjusts as necessary at all driving levels. This means more efficient delivery of power and therefore better fuel economy ratings.
So, if you’re in search of an efficient new car and you’re interested in our favorite automaker, we can provide you with the information you need to you choose one. Below we have a chart detailing which Nissan models have a Continuously Variable Transmission. We have provided each new model and trims offering the impressive Xtronic CVT, so you can find the most efficient new vehicle.
