Are you a manual or automatic driver? What do you make of this?

Driving a car is decidedly not a “one-night” process. Vehicles normally come with manual or automatic transmissions, so there are two types of corresponding drivers: manual driver vs automatic driver. Who is better? The answer is the former. While manual cars offer better control of weight transfer, grip and modification, automatic models cannot do that.

Manual drivers vs automatic drivers: Who are better?

Below are some points that prove manual drivers are more skillful than automatic drivers.

>>> Pros and cons of driving an automatic car

1. Better handling

Manual drivers are more knowledgeable about the time to stop their car as well as the right way to handle it. They are more aware of physics and acceleration or braking. Other than that, such careful drivers know how the car may over- or under-steer with adhesion limit.

2. Cautious driving

Manual drivers are cautious when on the move. Roads have everything from corners, bumps and cambers and to drive safely and perfectly, understanding how the weight of your car shift from front to rear is needed. While manual drivers know it well, few automatic ones have an idea.

3. Attentive

Riding a manual car forces drivers to be very aware and attentive at all time. They have to gather all relevant information to get ready for driving in sensitive paths, making them mentally alert then minimizing the chance of negligence while driving. Unlike automatic riders, they cannot remain calm and relax during the trip.

Manual drivers feel exactly enthusiastic about driving rather than bored

Driving is an art that not everyone can master but manual drivers turn out to be good leaners. Yes, they’re exactly enthusiastic about driving rather than bored. Their car is not an automatic that does everything for you, so they have to learn driving tips their own from braking, turning and detecting distance, not to mention awareness and concentration.

So all things considered, manual drivers are definitely better than automatic drivers (we mean here those who drive nothing but automatic cars).
