Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014) vs BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive35i (2014): 32 facts in comparison

1. Has dual-clutch transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
