Manual cars at Evans Halshaw
Manual transmissions have long been the default choice in most cars. However, over time, the manual gearbox which was once common is now becoming much more rare.
Often hailed for its engagement factor, the manual gearbox involves the driver more due to the operation of the clutch pedal and use of a gear knob.
But, other than having a clutch pedal and gear knob, what is a manual car, and more importantly what are the benefits?
What is a manual car?
A manual car is quite simply a car with a manual transmission. Manual cars have three pedals; an accelerator, a brake and a clutch.
Usually, a manual gearbox has five speeds in lesser powered cars, or a 6-speed in most modern day cars. Drivers operate the gearbox by pressing the clutch with their left foot whilst shifting the gear knob with their left hand (UK) through the gears they need.

- More engaging than an automatic car
