Cheapest automatic car in every segment in South Africa

New cars are rarely released without an automatic transmission in their line-up.

While automotive purists prefer the freedom, control, and feel of a manual transmission, the majority of consumers lean towards the user-friendly, comfort-oriented automatic options.

In fact, this is the reason why many premium manufacturers no longer offer manual gearbox variants in their cars.

For example: The latest generation of the BMW 3-Series is only available with eight-speed automatic transmissions.

Vehicles fitted with these gearboxes typically have higher asking prices, too – as the cheapest passenger car in South Africa becomes R19,000 more expensive if you would like the automatic specification.
