Lada Granta car with automatic transmission got 30 new parts and components, said the manager of working group of AvtoVAZ by automatic transmission integration, Oleg Chramkov. By his words, engineering changes also concerned Japanese automatic transmission: carter of torque converter was changed for the adaptation of transmission to plant’s engine and engine compartment.

AvtoVAZ installs automatic transmission of Japanese company Jatco in Lada Granta cars.

The task of specialists of AvtoVAZ and companies-partners was the creation of perceptible transmission for a driver in case with Lada Granta”, – said Mr. Chramkov. – Feelings in Lada Granta car resemble manual transmission – the intensity of acceleration varies in dependence on the impact on acceleration pedal.
