VW gear shift


Volkswagen is to offer a direct shift gearbox version of its 1.9 litre Caddy Van, enabling users to drive it like an automatic without incurring the fuel consumption of a conventional automatic.

The DSG lever looks like that of an automatic, but with the addition of a D setting, allowing the driver to shift up or down a gear.
