Change gears in Gran Turismo 7

If drivers are really serious about immersing themselves in all the real-world elements of Gran Turismo 7, then they should take their chances and try manual transmission driving. Yes, automatics are easier, but there’s an unspoken thrill of finally mastering how to shift into the right gears. This is how you switch to the traditional driving style and achieve victories in the process.

Once you get past the game’s initial music rally tutorial, you can only switch to manual mode just before entering a race or on the pause screen. Each of these screens includes an Assist settings option that allows you to switch from automatic to manual or vice versa. When using manual with the default controls, pressing the square will lower the gears and pressing “X” will raise them.

You should start a race in low gear and keep an eye on the bar at the bottom of the HUD (as shown below). As you start gaining more speed, this bar will fill up and eventually start flashing, ultimately indicating that you should gear up. As soon as you hit a sharp corner and slow down, the HUD will recommend which lower gear you should use. The recommended lower gear is always to the right of the current gear, which is shown at the bottom of the screen.

These tools are available in all Gran Turismo 7 modes, so it’s worth testing your manual skills in practice rounds first. Aside from changing gears, we also recommend learning how to drift, as it can keep your car in high gears at the crucial moments – especially around sharp corners.
