TL;DR – A Megane RS shows us how its 6-speed manual transmission can't outshift the GLA45s' 7-speed DCT transmission
A user-uploaded video on Complaint Singapore features a Megane RS and a GLA45s drag racing from one traffic light to the next.
Here's the video for reference:
The 22-second video takes place in the CBD area of Singapore, along Central Blvd.
It's not a Hyundai
The caption of the video states that the car racing the Mercedes is a Hyundai, but it's not. It's a Renault Megane RS
Manual vs DCT
Towards the end of the video, you'll notice that the GLA overtakes the Megane RS before the video cuts off.
So, does that mean that a dual-clutch transmission is better than a manual one?
Let's see how Google answered this question.
DCTs can be as efficient as manual transmissions, and it shifts faster than any human can. This is why the application of DCTs in performance cars makes perfect sense. However, in everyday driving, DCTs will struggle to creep in traffic and on hills. It's an inherent characteristic of DCTs to judder at low speeds.
