How to identify torque transmission in Mk3 foci?

Hi,

I am just wondering what is the most definitive way to know that a 2016 or other Focus is fitted with a torque converter rather than dual clutch transmission?

I was under the impression that SelectShift is the codename for the torque trans and PowerShift for the DCT but it's all murky in how it's identified.

Thanks in advance for any clarification.

Thanks, oddly I remember reading that they switched back to torque in 2016. WTH is going on :)

Actually if the car is equipped with a 1.0L engine and is an automatic, it's the 6-speed torque-converter automatic. Anything other engine options paired with an automatic, it's the Powershift DCT transmission. Hope it helps!
