While exploring the Hyundai lineup, you might have come across SHIFTRONIC® on the specs sheet. What is Hyundai SHIFTRONIC®? Select Hyundai models are equipped with this unique transmission system that gives Capitol Hill drivers the opportunity to override the automatic transmission and shift gears manually. Another standout feature of SHIFTRONIC® is the fact that an advanced computer actually prevents the engine from stalling or over-revving while SHIFTRONIC® is engaged.


Using the SHIFTRONIC® system on your Hyundai vehicle is actually quite simple. All you have to do to activate this feature is to move the shift lever into the SHIFTRONIC® gear position. It’s that easy! Depending on the model that you drive, there are different ways to shift gears with SHIFTRONIC®.

  • Regular Gear Shift: To downshift, pull the lever backward. To upshift, push the shift lever forward.
  • Paddle Shifters: Press the “+” button on the paddle shifter when you need to upshift. Press the “-” button paddle shifter when you need to downshift.

When Should I Use Hyundai SHIFTRONIC®?

If you have a vehicle that is outfitted with Hyundai SHIFTRONIC®, you may be wondering when you should use the system. If you are looking to improve handling, braking, and fuel economy, Hyundai SHIFTRONIC® can help you do so.
