With automobiles constantly evolving and finding new technology for better, safer, and more optimized vehicles, there seems to be a downward shift for one vehicular system in particular. The popularity of manual transmissions is dwindling.
Most vehicles have the manual transmission as the standard option on a model’s base trim, but most upper-level trims come standard with an automatic transmission, especially larger vehicles (SUVs and crossovers). Kia Motors offers a mix of manual and automatic transmissions, and one of the hatchbacks come with manual transmission as an option on its high-tier trim. Take a look at what vehicles you can get if manually shifting is more your style.
2018 Kia Forte
Available as a sedan and a hatchback, the 2018 Kia Forte sedan has three trims (LX, S, and EX) and two engine choices that make up the powertrain. The standard on the LX and S is a 2.0-liter DOHC engine made with the Atkinson Cycle to lower emissions. All engines are also optimized with dual continuously variable valve timing and an enhanced version of fuel delivery. This engine can generate 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission pairing is a six-speed manual to the LX trim, with the option to upgrade to an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic. That’s one saving grace for manual transmission lovers – Sportmatic is a system design that allows drivers to disengage the automatic transmission and open up the ability to manually shift gears by moving the gear shift knob to the left when set on “Drive”.
