"Sport+" is particularly emotional with double-declutching during downshifts and partial cylinder cut-off via a brief and precisely defined retardation of ignition and injection at full load.
The new 3.0-litre in-line engine is coupled with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission, which impresses with extremely short shift times, fast response to shift paddle commands, double-declutching function and multiple downshifts.
An AMG Speedshift TCT 9G transmission comes as standard, and features short shift times, fast response to paddle commands, a double-declutching function and multiple downshifts.
You get an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission which features three distinct transmission modes, a double-declutching function dependent on the transmission mode and a RACE START function for optimum acceleration.
When decelerating and shifting down (throttle valve closed), the engine speed is automatically adapted by means of double-declutching. Gears are engaged as usual by means of the gear pedal.

The Autocar magazine stated: "The car is unusually easy to control by reason of the synchromesh gear, which does not call for double-declutching. As regards silence of operation, second gear runs so quietly that it is hardly possible to tell whether the car is in top or second, except by the increased revolutions of the engine."
I'm not normally a fan of automatic gearboxes, being old enough to have learned the craft of double-declutching and heel and toe downshifts, but the 330d has so much grunt that changing gears is an iritating chore.
