Automatics are becoming the preferred choice over manual transmissions, according to many used car dealers.

Trade expert Glass's Guide claims used automatic prices are rising, from superminis to MPVs, while auto transmission is seen as essential on most luxury cars.

Renault dropped its 'Easy' clutchless option on the Clio, while Toyota dealers say Yaris superminis fitted with the Freetronic system are proving difficult to sell on.
