People who want full control of their car’s movement often go for manual transmission models. But as technology has advanced, car manufacturers are no longer as excited about producing stick. Not all new car drivers and soon-to-be owners know how to drive stick. These days, most people look for automatic transmission cars out of convenience. But there are still those who want to play things old school, and believe there is no substitute for stick driving. Here are models that still offer manual transmission.

Ford Mustang

The Mustang is an iconic vehicle, especially for car fans who have a need for speed. A lot of Mustangs come in automatic transmission, but also come in stick shifts.

Mazda 5

Mazda still produces the Mazda 5 in standard manual transmission. However, its manual gear box is not as high-performance as its automatic transmission version.

Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is the commuter car of America’s middle class. It’s the first Japanese car to ever be manufactured in America, and it always offers a manual transmission option to fans of stick driving.

Volkswagen Golf GTI

The Volksagen Golf GTI, which first saw the stores 30 years ago, is not bidding goodbye to the manual stick. While its upper end versions are also available in manual transmission, car fans still go for the GTI.
