Similar in concept to Porsche's Tiptronic gearbox, this 'manumatic' (Manual/automatic) gearbox from Volvo allows the driver to select gears, whilst allowing them to still have the benefits of an automatic gearbox - namely, just sticking the gearlever in "D". The gearbox will change up at the redline should a dozy driver forget to upshift before then. Available with Volvo's T6 and D5 engines only.
"What gearbox does this have?"
"This has a six-speed Geartronic gearbox."
