CVT is mostly unheard of outside small vehicles, and for good reason.
The idea behind it of course is great but I've got doubts there'll ever be a decent implementation.
Given that autos with mad amounts of ratios are becoming common, there seems not much reason to pursue improvements.
Stupidly Subaru have gone with a CVT even on the 3.6R Outback whereas previously it was only on the 2.5.
A decent 8 speed would have been a much better choice.
