Hello M S Mani !!
Nissan micra does not have CVT. It features five speed manual transmission.Its very smooth to change the gears and Nissan vehicles are very much reliable for long term usage. Instrument clusre has gear shift indicator feature. This helps to know in which gear you are driving the car. A very handy feature that can be realy helpful while driving in city traffic conditions. High reliability of Nissan technology equipment can be efficiently used for more than 10 years provided maintenance is carried out as per schedule.
It is noteworthy that Nissan Micra has no CVT and runs with the conventional manual transmission, but yes, a CVT grarbox is more efficient and does ask for more and major repairs than the rest. It can last long. In addition, the biggest benefit of having a car equipped with CVT, it doesn’t require nearly as many operational parts as a traditional transmission. Less moving parts result in less friction, and consequently there will be a drop in the heat working on the parts and breaking them down.
