Volkswagen Models With Manual Transmission
It may seem like manual transmissions are going extinct, and have been for decades, but this rule doesn’t apply so much to Volkswagen. We still believe in some of the pure aspects of driving, and that is why we’re happy there are so many Volkswagen models with manual transmission.
So without keeping you waiting any longer, here is a list of Volkswagen models that are offered with a manual transmission. Keep in mind that this list is updated to the 2016 model year. Take a look or contact us at Neftin Volkswagen to learn more about their availability.
- Beetle Convertible
- Golf GTI
- Golf R
- Golf SportWagen
As you can see, Volkswagen drivers in the U.S. have plenty of options to choose from should they want a manual transmission. Those who want some of the benefits of a manual, but don’t know how to drive with one, can still choose between the many VW models offering the DSG transmission with Tiptronic shifting mode.
Advantages to Driving With a Manual Transmission
So why would you want to choose one of these manual transmission options over an automatic. Well, here are a few reasons why a stick shift might be the better option for some drivers.
- More control in adverse weather conditions or when you don’t have much traction.
- A possible theft deterrent (if the thief can’t drive a stick shift).
- The potential for a little better fuel economy.
- It’s just plain fun.
So now that you’ve seen how many Volkswagen models have manual transmission, consider VW for your next stick-shift model. If you haven’t learned how to drive with a manual transmission, seeing how many great VW models come with a manual transmission might just be a good enough reason to learn. You won’t regret it.
