What is Hyundai’s iMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission)?
Hyundai’s iMT technology features a Transmission Gear Shift (TGS) Lever with Intention Sensor, Hydraulic Actuator and Transmission Control Unit (TCU). The iMT has been designed to offer a seamless Drive Experience by incorporating a cohesive logic between the various components on manual transmissions:
- Transmission Control Unit receives signal from TGS Lever Intention Sensor, indicating driver’s desire to change gears.
- TCU sends signal to engage Hydraulic Actuator forming Hydraulic Pressure.
- Hydraulic Pressure is then sent to Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) through Clutch Tube.
- Concentric Slave Cylinder uses this pressure to control the clutch and pressure plate, thereby engaging and disengaging the clutch.
- Driver is able to seamlessly shift gears without the need to mechanically operate clutch pedal.
Further, Sport trim in VENUE is being offered on Hyundai’s globally proven 1.5 l U2 CRDi Diesel BS6 engine (6MT) as well as Kappa 1.0 l T-GDi Petrol BS6 engine (iMT/ 7DCT).
