Other than that it seems CVT's are in the category if you can't beat them, join them - just like the upcoming 2018 Kia Forte. Here's a link if it's ok to post:


When this becomes mainstream in conjuction with a new engine with extremely high thermal efficiency, how can anyone compete with it? Maybe SkyActiv-X?
