Automatic Vs Manual

Automatic Vs Manual

One of the first questions you have to ask yourself when you start the car-buying process is whether to go for a manual or automatic transmission.

For many, it’s simply a case of sticking with what they know.  If you’ve only ever driven manual, switching to automatic may never have crossed your mind.  And if you’ve gotten used to automatic, the complicated world of manual may be daunting.

To help with this process, we’ve put together a quick infographic highlighting the pros and cons of automatic vs manual.


Automatic vs Manual – Our Verdict

The answer really depends on what you want out of your car.  If you spend a lot of time in traffic, or want something that will get you from A-to-B with minimal effort, then automatic is the way to go.

But if you drive just for the joy of it, if you like to be in control, then go manual.

And if you’re still undecided, then try both!  All of our sales sites have manual and automatic models available for you to test drive.
