Lexus new Direct-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (DCVT) combines features from an automatic transmission, a CVT, and a manual transmission. The CVT uses a fixed, mechanical first gear ratio for starting from a stop, and then switches over to the CVT pulleys for higher vehicle speeds.

The unique CVT style is also used in the 2019 Toyota Corolla. By using these fixed ratio gears, the new CVT will improve the belt efficiency and increase the shift speed ratio, resulting in better performance.
