It might be tempting to dream of driving a stick shift after watching the latest Fast and the Furious movie – (with Fast Nine, the tricks got a little too crazy, but hey, that’s Hollywood for you!)
But all the same, it may seem easy and exciting to drive and go round corners at insane speed on a stick shift car, but the truth is, it is not.
It’s a well-known fact that manual cars can be more fuel-efficient. Plus, they also give more control to the driver.
So then why are most luxurious cars automatic?
Here are a few reasons why:
Easier To Drive:
If you’ve driven an automatic and a stick shift, you probably know how difficult it is to switch gears, especially on smaller routes that require you to slow down, come to a complete stop and start again.
The automatic shifting of an automatic car, on the other hand, provides more efficient acceleration to the driver through the gears.
They change by themselves, and thus, you don’t have to worry about changing gears and can enjoy your drive instead.
By the way, did you know that some supercars come with 9-12 automatic gears? You can take one for a test drive by renting a luxury car from us at LVC Exotics over the weekend and see for yourself.
This is why practically every car company offers an automatic transmission with their fully trimmed cars.
Cars with automatic gears are not only easy to drive but are also safer. This is why from Audi to Volvo, most cars and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) offer an automatic variant.
Young adults also find it easier to learn how to drive an automatic than a stick shift, making it a more popular option amongst drivers.
With more integrated systems like navigation systems, more and more luxury cars opt for automatic over manual.
