Manual vs Automatic Transmissions — Pros and Cons
Manual and automatic transmissions connect a vehicle's engine to its wheels to make the vehicle move. Every transmission features a gearbox containing a system of gears, and these gears engage one at a time to provide different levels of power to the wheels according to the vehicle's needs.
For example, a car driving uphill requires a different gear configuration than a car driving on a flat road. Manual and automatic car transmissions each have advantages and disadvantages, and the car transmission that's best for you depends on your style of driving.
How Do Manual and Automatic Cars Differ?
The most obvious difference between automatic and manual vehicles is the layout of the shifter — that is, the lever that changes the transmission's gear placement, usually located between the two front seats of the car in newer models and sometimes attached to the dash or steering column in older models.
Automatic cars typically have simple shifters that let you alternate between four driving modes: park, reverse, neutral, and drive, in that order. Many automatic shifters sometimes allow you to shift gears to handle specific driving conditions.
Manual transmission cars, also known as stick shifts, are different. They tend to feature shifters with five to seven forward speed gears, plus reverse gear. The gears are numbered, with higher numbers corresponding to a greater distance traveled per engine revolution.
In addition to a more complicated shifter, manual transmission vehicles have a clutch pedal. The clutch pedal, which sits to the left of the acceleration and brake pedals, allows the driver to engage the vehicle's clutch plate to control the vehicle's speed. To drive, you hold down the clutch pedal while starting the engine, then gradually ease off it while pushing the accelerator. You also hold down the clutch pedal (with your foot off the gas pedal) when shifting gears.
The Benefits of Cars with Automatic Transmissions:
Automatic cars are the most popular new cars in America, mainly due to how much simpler they are to drive. Because automatics lack clutch pedals, many new drivers see them as having easier learning curves and requiring less maintenance.
Driving through hilly areas in automatic cars is also easier, as you don't have to switch gears each time the steepness of the road changes. In particular, accelerating from a dead stop on a steep climb is less tricky in automatic cars because there's almost no chance of the car stalling.
There's also little to no risk of the vehicle rolling backward once you engage the gears to move forward. Stalling isn't a problem in automatic cars unless there's a mechanical failure. You don't need to worry about your vehicle losing power if you're at a stoplight and forget to activate the clutch.
Another benefit of automatic cars is that you can keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times. You can respond to road hazards more quickly since you're not fiddling with the shifter. Similarly, heavy traffic isn't as much of a problem for automatic drivers as it is for manual drivers since you don't have to change the gears in a constant stop-and-go fashion.
The Drawbacks of Cars with Automatic Transmissions:
Although automatic cars are convenient and easy to drive, many drivers feel they don't perform as well as manuals since they sometimes switch to the wrong speed gear when they interpret driving conditions incorrectly.
When automatic cars switch to higher gears at the wrong time, they waste engine power and cost the driver money in wasted gas. At times, switching to a lower gear in a manual car provides a needed burst of power, but automatic cars' transmissions are usually more cautious about making such gear switches on their own. As a result, traditional automatic cars have a reputation for being less fuel-efficient than manual ones, though the fuel efficiency gap is no longer an issue for newer automatics.
Automatic cars require more maintenance because of their complex transmission systems. Many automakers charge more for automatic vehicles, which is another drawback.
The Benefits of Cars with Manual Transmissions:
Automatics may be popular, but manual drivers are passionate about their vehicles. Access to speed gears gives manual drivers better control over their speed. They don't need to rely on their car to make basic driving decisions, such as switching up a gear to ascend a hill. For experienced drivers, this intimate sense of full control brings peace of mind, as it means the torque converter is less likely to waste energy.
Manual transmissions also require less maintenance and fewer repairs than automatic ones, owing to their simpler layouts. In the earlier days of the automobile, manual transmissions were the default.
Manual cars tend to have a lower starting price point than automatics on average. However, the prices are close, and the savings won’t be enough to consider a manual solely based on price. You may also be able to secure more affordable car insurance.
It’s easier to maintain a manual gearbox, and it’s less likely to malfunction than automatic gearboxes, which translates to a more affordable insurance policy.
In addition, older manuals have a better fuel economy than automatic vehicles of a similar age. That's not just because manual cars lack fuel-draining torque converters. It's also because manual cars have lighter transmissions.
The Drawbacks of Cars with Manual Transmissions:
Like automatics, manuals have drawbacks. Most importantly, many drivers find them cumbersome. Manually shifting gears and managing the clutch pedal takes a high level of dexterity and situational awareness, especially for drivers who didn't learn to drive manuals from the get-go. Shifting gears in a manual requires taking a hand off the steering wheel periodically, making accidents more likely.
Another downside to manual transmissions is that they're less common than automatics. Because so few people drive manuals, reselling a manual when you want to upgrade can be difficult.
What's more, although some manual cars come with an automatic driving option, sports cars often don't, so you're stuck with what you have. In addition, the clutch in manual cars may need repairs or replacement after long-term use. Missing gears while shifting wears out the clutch, and a clutch that fails while you're driving can put you in danger.
Manual vs. Automatic: Final Considerations
Manual and automatic cars both come with benefits and drawbacks, but they're not your only options.
A third transmission type, the continuously variable transmission, is available as well. Though the driving experience is nearly the same as an automatic, technically, a CVT has a single gear. It uses a belt-and-pulley system to transfer engine power to the vehicle's wheels, allowing for infinite ratio gradients.
Fuel-efficient and relatively quiet due to their lack of gear-shifting, CVT transmissions are typical in hybrid vehicles. They offer a smoother, more seamless driving experience than either manual or automatic transmissions. However, many drivers feel CVTs have slightly uncomfortable acceleration and handling, plus a faint drone that some find irritating.
Many modern vehicles throughout the industry, especially Japanese and Korean brands, use CVTs. Just as manual cars are more common in Australia than in the U.S. for cultural and economic reasons, CVTs are more common in Japan for the same, though their popularity in the U.S. has been growing.
There's also something called a dual-clutch transmission or DCT. Popular in Europe, this transmission type also acts like an automatic, but it uses two clutches, each with opposing gearing (one has first, third and fifth gear, with the other having second, fourth, and sixth gear).
Initially pioneered in Formula One racing, these transmissions shift much quicker than conventional automatics, and they're most common in performance-oriented models like sports cars and supercars. They allow for nearly instantaneous gear changes either automatically or through steering wheel-mounted paddles that the driver controls.
There are a few other considerations to keep in mind when deciding which type of transmission to buy. Although manual cars typically come with five or six gears, the full gamut ranges from three to seven gears. More gears mean more flexibility, but it also means more complexity.
Whether you should get manual or automatic depends on your driving preferences. If you like convenience and ease of use, an automatic is probably for you. If you prefer a strong sense of control over your car, however, you might be better off with a manual.
AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) Explained
Off late, Maruti-Suzuki has created a ton of hype by launching their Celerio hatchback with the common man’s automatic gearbox, the automated manual transmission or AMT. For the past few decades in automotive history, the rapid progress in the technology of automatic gearboxes has effectively nullified the necessity of manual operation of the gears using the clutch pedal and gear lever.
However, they are often expensive to manufacture and usually sit in the premium pricing bracket away from the affordability of the masses. But now with the usage of the AMT, car manufacturers can also aim for the budget segments to provide the convenience of use associated with an automatic gearbox. Let’s take a look at how this Formula-1 derived technology functions and the various pros and cons associated with it.
How does Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) work?
In the current car market three widely used types of automatic gearboxes already exist namely, the CVT (Constantly Variable Transmission), the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) and the Simple Automatic Transmission. All of these use a gear and clutch arrangement much more complex and completely different from the conventional manual gearbox. The AMT, however, uses the exact same gear and clutch setup as seen in a manual transmission.
The only difference that arises is in the way they are operated. In place of a gear lever and a clutch pedal inside the cabin of the car, which are manually operated by the driver, the AMT transmission has a hydraulic actuator system mounted inside the engine which operates both. The actuators of the AMT system are linked to the ECU of the car, which gives it the input and the output goes to the gears and clutch.
The gear shift pattern is pre-programmed from the factory and that data is stored by the ECU. So whenever the RPM climbs to a certain level, the ECU automatically controls the actuators to operate both the clutch and gearbox in synchronisation.
This functions exactly like an automatic gearbox as there is no clutch pedal and in some cases, there isn’t even a gear lever inside the cabin (as seen in the Renault Kwid). Although in most cases, there is a gear lever with the three drive modes, R (Reverse), N (Neutral) and D (Drive). There is also an option of shifting into manual mode just parallel to the Drive mode.
In the manual mode, the gear operation is significantly simple, move the lever forward to shift into a higher gear and move it backwards to shift into a lower gear, no clutch and no multi-directional shift paths.
The Pros of Automated Manual Transmission (AMT):
- Convenience: The ease of driving is surely the primary useful attribute of an AMT gearbox. It works just like any other automatic transmission and you can indeed relax your left leg and hand as well unless you decide to switch to manual mode. This attribute really shines in rush hour bumper-to-bumper traffic situations. The added in-built “Creep” function further eases the situation by allowing you to move at a slow pace just by releasing the brake pedal and without giving any accelerator input.
- Economy: Fuel efficiency is another prime point with the AMT, unlike the other automatics. Most AMT’s in our country are used in hatchbacks and their shift pattern is programmed in a way in which maximum fuel efficiency is prioritized. Its computer operated so it’s very precise at doing that as well.
- Drive it like you want: Most AMT equipped cars also come with the boon of a manual mode. So whenever you are missing some old school “hand on the knob” driving, you can always do that whenever you desire. It’s even less complicated in this case with no clutch and a simple bidirectional shift path.
- Cost: All conventional automatics cost a bomb over the respective manual version of those cars because of the complex technology involved. An AMT gearbox costs almost half of what a conventional automatic would. In comparison to a DCT gearbox, it’s almost 1/4 th the price!
The Cons of Automated Manual Transmission (AMT):
- Jerky Gear Shifts:
This is one major gripe with the AMT transmission. The gear shift quality is not always consistent. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s plain jerky and awkward. In comparison to other expensive automatics, the AMT will certainly feel inferior in terms of shift quality.
The AMT options currently available in the country are mostly in the budget segment. These cars are tuned for fuel economy and hence might make unplanned upshifts in the middle of overtaking manoeuvres. This can be potentially dangerous and it is best advised to perform such moves in manual mode.
- Hills and Inclines:
Tackling the hills can get rather tricky with the AMT. Using an AMT in inclined or hilly terrain would require constant use of the manual mode and some thoughtful utilization of the handbrake. This aspect pretty much negates the convenience factor associated with it.
CARS24 Verdict on Automated Manual Transmission (AMT):
The introduction of AMT into the Indian market is a much-appreciated move by auto manufacturers. Traffic is worsening day by day and it is indeed very appealing to have the convenience of an automatic gearbox at a very marginal premium over the manual transmission. Sure it has a few rough edges, but for the price you pay, it is a very lucrative addition to opt for. Technology is developing at a rapid rate and over time you will only see the AMT’s get better and better.

How Manual Transmissions Work: Explained in an Easy Way
If you are driving a stick shift transmission car, you will have a lot of questions floating in your mind like “How does a manual transmission work?”, “What is moving inside the manual transmission when moving the shifter?”. In this article, we will answer all questions related to manual transmission and give you a basic knowledge of every vital components in your car’s drivetrain. Let’s go!
What is Manual Transmission? (Shift Stick)
Before find out the answer for the question “How does a manual transmission work?“, you should understand about what manual transmission is. Manual transmission or a stick-shift or manual gearbox or a standard transmission is a type of transmission which the driver uses a stick to change gears literally. In the past, manual cars often had a dash-mounted shifter or a steering column but nowadays, in modern vehicles, the gear stick is mounted vertically in the center console and linked to the transmission through a linkage.
What is manual transmission?
Changing gears requires the clutch disc (which is located between the transmission and the engine) to be released through a 3rd pedal situated on the left of the brake. Then releasing the clutch, selecting the chosen gear and engaging the clutch again. From a standstill, the disc will be wear out early if the driver engage the clutch too slow. And if the driver engage the clutch too quick, it will make the engine to stall.
Studying how to drive a manual car takes more time than studying how to drive a automatic car, but it is funner and easier than it sounds. When driving a car with manual transmission, you will feel there is a connection between you and your car that is too hard to reproduce with an automatic transmission car. And another cool thing is that if you can operate a manual transmission, you will be able to run any type of vehicle.
Normally, a base-model vehicle is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission. In more expensive vehicles, a 6-speed transmission is equipped instead.
Various Parts of a Manual Gearbox
These brief descriptions about the gear and hardware of the gearbox will help you comprehend the complex way it works.

1. Clutch and Clutch Pedal
Consisting of various small components, the clutch transmits engine torque to the transmission. The clutch pedal is a hydraulically controlled piece of gear that disengages the clutch when you depress it.
The circular mass sends engine torque to the clutch disc that interacts with a smooth surface of the wheel.
3. Selector Fork and Collar
It’s an arm-like piece of gear that helps in moving the collars along the output shaft. On the other hand, you can select different gears with the collar by locking it to a particular gear, resulting in passing the torque to the output shaft from the layshaft.
These help the gear and the collar to engage with each other and match their speed in case if there’s a difference.

5. Layshaft and Output Shaft
The layshaft’s gears mesh with the output shaft’s gears when the first one receives the engine power.
You will find gears of various sizes in a manual gearbox. Larger ones have more teeth and provide more torque to curtail the car’s speed while the smaller ones produce less torque so that your vehicle can run at high speed.

How Does A Manual Transmission Work?
So, with all your newfound knowledge, let’s find out what happens when you shift gears in your manual car and see how manual transmission works.
● You have to press down the clutch pedal to disengage the clutch before switching the vehicle’s key on. It will cut the power between the transmission and the input shaft of the engine. As a result, the engine will be alive without powering up the entire vehicle.
● Move the gearshift into first gear, which is located in the output shaft, so that the shifting fork advance towards the latter one. The first gear is connected to a layshaft gear. The layshaft, on the other hand, has a connection to the input shaft of the engine through another gear.
● There’s a synchronizer collar attached to the shifting fork. It helps the driving gear to transport power to the output shaft and sync up their speeds if there’s a difference. You put the vehicle in gear when this collar locks with the first gear, which is in a secure attachment to the output shaft.
● Now, put a slight pressure on the gas pedal and take the foot off the clutch. It will reconnect the engine with the gearbox. Then, the vehicle will start moving forward.
● Shift to the second gear after pushing the clutch to go faster. It will disconnect the power between the engine and the transmission gearbox. You just need to repeat this process to change the gear so that you can slow down or speed up the car.

Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline: что это за зверь и кусается ли?
Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline — опция, свидетельствующая о выборе ручной коробки передач при работе автозапуска охранной системы. Водитель должен выйти из машины, оставить ее на нейтрали КПП и с поднятым ручным тормозом (учтите, что на дисплее брелка может появиться надпись «Тормоз»). После этого можно дистанционно включат двигатель и автоматический пуск для прогрева мотора. Ниже рассмотрим, в чем особенности этой функции, как она работает, и должна ли постоянно гореть надпись на дисплее.
Что означает Manual Gear на брелке
Многие автовладельцы не совсем понимают особенности Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline, что это, и для чего требуется. Надпись, светящаяся на дисплее, свидетельствует о выборе режима работы автоматического запуска двигателя на ручной коробке передач. Таким способом охранная система вынуждает водителя выйти из транспортного средства, оставив его на нейтрали МКПП и с поднятым ручным тормозом.
При свечении на брелке Старлайн Manual Gear можно дистанционно заводить двигатель с помощью брелка и программировать автоматический пуск для прогрева силового узла. При этом не стоит переживать, что машина начнет самостоятельное движение на включенной скорости. По сути, речь идет о программной нейтрали.
Для лучшего понимания, что означает Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline, необходимо подготовит машину с МКПП к запуску. Речь идет о создании программной нейтрали — порядка действий, гарантирующего, что в машине, подготовленной к пуску, ручка КПП останется в нейтральной позиции. Следовательно, завести двигатель при включенной скорости не получится.
Программную нейтраль для работы Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline можно задать двумя путями — автоматически или с помощью пульта.
- Включите ручник и достаньте ключ зажигания. Мотор должен работать. При этом на машине начнет светится индикатор (постоянно) сигнализации Starline, а габариты мигнут один раз. На брелке звучит мелодия, а на экране появляется картинка R99. При включении режима турботаймера появляются иконки R01, R02, R03 и R04.
- Выйдите из авто и закройте двери. При этом мотор продолжает работать.
- Кликните кнопку 1 на пульте сигнализации Starline. На машине звучит один звуковой сигнал и единожды зажигаются габаритные огни. На брелке прозвучит короткий сигнал, а на дисплее появляется индикатор постановки на охрану.
С помощью пульта:
- Включите ручник.
- Жмите на кнопку 2 брелка сигнализации Starline. На авто начинает гореть светодиод, а габариты загорятся один раз. На пульте прозвучит мелодия, а на экране появится иконка R99.
- Достаньте ключ зажигания из замка, выйдите из авто и закройте двери. При этом мотор остается работать.
- Кликните на брелке клавишу 1. В этом случае звучит один сигнал охранной системы, а габариты зажгутся один раз. Мотор глохнет, а замки закрыты. На пульте звучит коротки сигнал, а на дисплее появляются иконки, показывающие режим включенной охранной системы.
После выполнения рассмотренных выше шагов функция Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline будет работать правильно и можно включать автоматический запуск двигателя, программировать его и использовать в дальнейшем.
Должна ли гореть надпись или нет
На форумах и в сообществах по интересам часто звучит вопрос, должна ли на брелке Старлайн А91 гореть надпись Manual Gear. Если на автомобиле установлена механическая коробка передач, свечение этой кнопки обязательно. Только в этом случае разрешено пользование автозапуском. При отсутствии индикатора на машинах с МКПП пользоваться опцией нельзя. Это связано с тем, что при нахождении на скорости машина при включении автозапуска может поехать и будет сбивать все на своем пути.
В случае, если на транспортном средстве установлена автоматическая коробка передач, индикатор не светится. При этом в предварительной подготовке транспортного средства и сигнализации Starline нет необходимости.
Во время настройки на дисплее может появиться знак дыма. Его свечение говорит о поддержке зажигания. Еще раз отметим, что это актуально только для машин с РКПП.
Теперь вы знаете, что такое Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline, и для чего нужна эта опция. В нормальном режиме на автомобилях с РКПП эта надпись должна гореть. Если это не так, пользоваться автозапуском нельзя. Если Вы его уже включили, заглушите машину с брелка и разберитесь с проблемой.
В комментариях поделитесь, с какими трудностями вы сталкивались при работе с автозапуском, и в каких случаях пропадала надпись Manual Gear на сигнализации Starline.
