Manual vs CVT performance

Hello! I was just wondering, since I cannot find a valid 0-100 number, how these two are compared performance wise?
I think I had seen a video at YouTube showing the CVT a little bit faster. Can this be true?

It's true and pretty normal. The CVT doesn't need to shift and is almost always in its perfect powerband.
But it has a limiter with a lower topspeed then the manual and the torque figure is 220Nm instead of 240Nm for manual.
Also, with engine tuning in mind, you're also better with a manual because the CVT isn't build for higher torque.

I am pretty sure CVT is not faster to 100km/h


I think CVT is 8.5 and MT is 8.2?


Cheers

Youtube says otherwise.

They're both faster irl.

Sounds about right. The manual has more torque and higher topspeed.
I've also seen some videos where they manage to get a low 7sec on a stock car.

The CVT is much better than an automatic transmission, by the look of it the numbers are minimal compared to the manual. Test drive the CVT, it's very responsive - so different to a Nissan or Toyota CVT.

The CVT for me is so much pleasure to drive whether it be motorways, country roads or residential areas. It's never felt sluggish when you need the acceleration it's there.

I got 'tired' of manual after my 8G 6 speed manual - great car but gear changes aren't needed when you have a great CVT that hardly has any impact on acceleration or miles per gallon!

8gen 5sp auto solves any of the 6 speed manual issues - a little more thirsty tho' !

It's a great transmission! The only downside is that it's not as "bulletproof" as other transmissions when you want higher power/torque.
Other then that it's the most efficiŽnt transmission.

Edit: I never have driven one. I certainly want to testdrive one sometime.
