Default car gurus:

is CVT
(continously variable transmission) the kind where you can switch between manual and automatic?

Yeah it is. There's lots of names for it depending on who you buy a car from.

I thought CVT was when there is a variable gear ratio that can change depending on the conditions.

no I believe CVT is the system where you have two cones facing in opposite directions and a belt run between then. The belt is then moved from one end to the other to change gear ratios which means that instead of having 5/6 gears you can potentialy have unlimited and ofcourse there is not need for a clutch to change gear

Yeah, David is right, it switches the gear ratios via a belt, so you feel no shifts.

bingo. It's pretty cool because you never feel the car shift. It's just a continuous acceleration.
