Manual transmission

WARNING

● Do not drive the vehicle with the clutch disengaged (i.e., when the clutch pedal is depressed) or with the shift lever in the neutral position. Engine braking has no effect in either of these conditions and the risk of an accident is consequently increased.

The manual transmission is a fully synchromeshed, 6-forward-speed and 1-reverse- speed transmission. The shift pattern is shown on the shift lever knob.
