Have driven both and enjoyed them both for what they were. I do prefer manual so got one. The A10 was the best auto I've driven though. Either way, it's a badass sounding and looking car.
I'm genuinely trying to understand what you mean when you use the word "inefficient". Are you referring to parasitic losses?For most Americans, practically speaking: yes. Theoritically? No. You're bringing in an outside force to operate the clutch as opposed to an automatic that must, drive itself automatically. Automatics are inheriently less efficient because of complexity. There is a reason why it costs more to research, it costs more to develope, and it costs more to buy it. It is more resource intensive than a manual. Add those variables to the manual and the manual should be theoritically faster. Again, look at Chevy.
Do they care .....?....me thinks that would be not. ;-)
Another advantage for the manual box ....... can push start the car.... roll down a hill start the car.
Too busy driving to make up reasons to defend our decisions. I got every one of these spaces from posts on this siteI’d say at least the manual guys can fill up a whole card.
The only thing we hear from the A10 guys is “it’s quicker” or “it’s more consistent”
Whoa whoa whoa, defend decisions? It’s not like we are driving Kia Sedonas here or something.Too busy driving to make up reasons to defend our decisions. I got every one of these spaces from posts on this site
I'll make an automatic guys card tomorrow if you like.
