here is something we didn't know

Automatics are becoming the preferred choice over manual transmissions, according to many used car dealers.
The advent of robust four and five-speed transmissions, plus switchable driving modes, is tempting even the most ardent enthusiast away from three-pedal power.

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. However, semi-automatics are proving a real turn-off. 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.
