Standing for Sequential Manual Gearbox, an SMG can be thought of as a a transmission which is equally capable of functioning as an automatic or manual transmission. The benefit of this is that the driver is not required to operate a clutch pedal when functioning as an automatic.
An SMG gearbox is operated by either a traditional stick, or a set of paddle shifters which are attached to the steering wheel or steering column. The manual mode will provide greater engine performance and will also remove the human element which brings with it the potential for error. The long term benefit of this is that it ensures a longer life to the transmission and all its related components.
