i received my 2014 Evoque in January (it was built in November 2013, i am guessing one of the first models built with the new transmission). So far I am very happy with it, and the transmission is definitely smoother than the old 6 speed. I do have one complaint however: the new transmission is not very smooth when upshifting from second to third, but only at certain rpms: if i press the gas gently - when the upshift happens below 2,000 rpm, then the shift change is smooth. If I floor it, then the shift change is also smooth. Only when the shift happens between 2,000 to 3,000 rpm, the shift is definitely noticeable (the car "shakes"). I was curious if any of you with a 2014 model have experienced the same thing?
