An Audi A4 has numerous manual, automatic and semi-automatic transmissions. On the other hand, Audi Sport A4 DTM has a manual transmission presenting high performance and which is used to control the horsepower and torque of its engine (460-hp). This means that Audi A4 uses quite a few distinct transmissions. This critique summarizes the complete Audi A4 transmission information.


The Audi A4 was introduced in 1994 with several powerful engines incorporating the 2.4- and 3-liter V-6s and 3-liter diesel V-6s and the 2.5-. These engines need durable and comprehensive transmissions to transmit the power.


The Audi A4 can have a 6-speed manual, 7-speed constantly variable transmission, 6-speed tiptronic automatic otherwise 7-speed S tronic.

Sequential Manuals:

Two types of manuals are presented there, one is the Gertag 6-speed for standard A4s and second one is high-performance Hewland 6-speed particularly for the Audi Sport A4 DTM.

ZF Tiptronic:

ZF Friedrichshafen AG introduced the tiptronic automatic which employs a manual “up shift” as well as “downshift” component that causes the vehicle driver to go around the automatic transmission for manual use devoid of a clutch.

S Tronic:

The 7-speed S tronic transmission is basically the four wheel drive Audi 4′s direct shift gearbox which with no clutch pedal, automatically manages a multi-shaft dual-clutch manual gearbox.


The Audi A4′s step less automatic is known as the 8-speed multitronic Continuously Variable Transmission. In this transmission gear ratio varies constantly for handling the torque of turbo diesel engine.
