    Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses pulleys or belts for gear shifting. The use of belts or pulleys instead of steel gears results in variable gear ratios dependent on engine speed or RPM. As a result this helps it deliver better fuel economy and a smooth and jerk-free drive. On the downside, if you are an enthusiastic driver you will not like the transmission lag whenever you floor the throttle. On the other hand a dual-clutch transmission uses two separate shafts with their own clutches for gear shifts: one shaft for odd-numbered gears and the other for even-numbered gears. This type of automatic transmission is purely a performance-oriented transmission that also delivers good fuel efficiency but comes at a penalty of higher manufacturing cost. If a problem arises they are also expensive to maintain.

    Cvt - smooth , have rubber band in transmission , you will have a rubber band effect , durability - rubber band gets weaken by getting rubbed , mantainence is medium dct - complex mechansim , fast trasnmission , high mantainence , high performance ,if you are enthusiast then go for dct/ dsg if you need smooth and daily commute then opt for cvt
