The sport compact-car scene might have peaked more than a decade ago but this is the year that Honda has finally decided to bring over one of its legendary Type R Civics. The Type R is the top performance car in Honda’s lineup. In fact, we’d guess only the Acura NSX supercar is quicker. But what’s neat about the Type R is that Honda channels the output of the 306-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine through a manual transmission and on to the front wheels. That’s right, every Type R is a manual.
The clutch pedal is the one that makes driving a manual car more difficult than an auto. Without going into too much detail, the clutch is essentially two metal plates that connect the engine to the drive wheels. So by pressing down on the clutch pedal, you’re disconnecting the engine from the wheels.
So why would we include a Jeep among st all this high-performance metal? Well first because the Wrangler is all new for 2018. And second because a manual transmission adds an extra dimension of fun to 4X4s. Creeping up and over boulders with a manual transmission is challenging and requires just the right shift timing, throttle, and clutch work. An automatic lets the vehicle slowly crawl over the worst trail obstacles. All the driver has to do is steer and gently apply the throttle.
