Available from September 1995 with just the 1.8i 120ps (118bhp) K series 1.8 litre engine and five speed manual PG1 series gearbox then the following February with the VVC using the same internal ratios but with a 4.2 to 1 final drive in place of the 3.9 to 1 in the 1.8i. July 1999 saw the first big model changes with the introduction of the 2000 MY (model year) cars with the introduction of the Steptronic (Auto) model (later called Stepspeed after BMW sold Rover and took the name with them.)
This auto model was a clever amalgam of CVT (Constantly Variable Transmission) gearbox and ECU control made by a well-known German transmission company, ZF, which also provided a ‘manual’ mode to include six locked ratios, rather than the constantly variable operation, so it provided a feel of a manual that could be changed at the flick of a steering wheel button, or the floor change, to imitate a ‘flappy paddle’ change.
For the TF, there were four basic models; 3 with manual 5 speed transmissions and a single automatic (CVT). The new TF 135 used the same gearbox ratios as the TF 160 which used the same gearbox from the previous MGF VVC.
