Is the new Citroen EAT6 automatic gearbox any good?

I am thinking of buying a new Citroen Picasso with the 130PS petrol engine and automatic gearbox. Is it a true auto gearbox (torque converter) or similar to the EGS on my previous Picasso?

Yes. Compact torque converter. Brilliantly matched to the 230Nm of the 1.2 Puretech 130 motor. Great to drive one or two up. Can't say what it's like fully laden.
