Question : WHICH transmission is better? CVT or the normal torque
They are two different things.
A CVT is a continuously variable transmission which is very much like an
automatic transmission except there are no
actual gears being shifted and the ratios
are continuously variable.
A lock-up convertor is fitted to an automatic transmission and what it does is
that above certain revs it locks up and
there is no slippage. This results in better
fuel consumption and is more noticeable
on longer drives where there is a constant
Personally, I prefer a transmission with
lock-up rather than CVT but there is nothing wrong with both as they achieve similar results through different technologies.
