The first two come with a 6- speed automatic transmission featuring sequential shifting through the ActiveSelect® system. This electronically controlled 4-wheel drive system can also vary its toque between the front and rear axles; this ensures maximum traction on different surfaces, whether on-road or off-road.

In order to save fuel, the system can even revert to front-wheel drive only when it senses that 4-wheel drive is not required.
