Renault Clio automatic
I have been looking into buying a Clio Auto, However am somewhat baffled as to the different autos out there.
Basically I'm looking at an Expression model on 52-53 plates.
However there seems to be 1 version of the auto transmission that is sometimes described as "Semi auto" or "tip tronic"...this type seems to have a conventional looking gear stick, but no clutch.....the other is a standard auto with a P N R D 1 2 selector.
My questions are....
Are all these transmissions basically the same gearbox, with different electronics? (one semi, one fully auto)
Does the Semi auto version have a fully auto mode?
Are the transmissions the same unit on the 1.4 and 1.6?
Are they CVT transmissions or conventional torque converter/planetary gear units.
I hope you can shed some light on this subject for me.
