4 SUVs With Manual Transmission You Can Still Buy

Manual transmissions are less popular since the development of automatic transmission, but they’ve never really fallen out of style. Hundreds of thousands of manual vehicles are sold every year to drivers who like their vintage feel and their durable transmissions.


If you’re shopping for a manual, it can be tricky to know exactly where to start. Fortunately, there are dozens of high-end, brand-new manual models available for purchase. Here are four examples to get you started.

Mazda CX-5

This SUV is a luxury car in every respect. Neat, comfortable interior features are built around a powerful 4-cylinder, 6-speed, 155 horsepower engine. Manual models come in front-wheel drive only, but the automatic models offer all-wheel drive.
