Here's a good explanation (although it refers to the Ford versions, it gives a good overview of the pros and cons)... https://www.cjponyparts.com/resourc...MIiL-e5pTP_QIVoxnnCh38SwX6EAAYAiAAEgKn_fD_BwE
Here's an excerpt...
"The benefits of DCTs speak for themselves. Faster shifting, less loss of power, and more fuel efficiency.
The negatives are that there’s a bit of a learning curve to using them, they tend to have a little more jerkiness than the average driver is comfortable with, and they have a driving sensation that feels a lot like “turbo lag".”
There's a reason why Porsches and other performance makes have dual clutch transmissions. In fact, I also have a Porsche Macan with the same transmission as the VW DSG, tuned slightly differently and rebranded as PDK. Audi uses the same one on all their cars as well. VW felt that most purchasers of the Taos would prefer the DSG to the full automatic. I agree. That said, as "slushboxes" go, the 8-speed automatic is a pretty good one.
