The transmission is connected to the engine through the clutch. The input shaft of the transmission therefore turns at the same rpm as the engine, which improves both power output and fuel economy. CVTs became common in hybrid cars because they are considerably more efficient than both manual and traditional automatic transmissions, and their popularity skyrocketed from there as automakers competed for the best possible fuel economy ratings. As of late 2016, one out of every four cars sold in the United States was equipped with a CVT.
One of the first things I was taught when learning how to drive a manual was to always let up on the gas pedal while shifting gears. That rule, however, doesn’t apply to the Cadillac ATS-V and its six-speed manual. The performance coupe’s no-lift shift feature lets you change gears without taking your foot off the gas, which avoids any power interruption from the car’s twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. The 2019 model year is the ATS-V’s last, and it’s unclear whether no-lift shifting will migrate to a future manual-transmission Cadillac. If you’re interested in this technology, a used ATS-V might be your best bet.
The Miata was all new for 2016, and a few years later the Mazda not only retains the easy-shifting and precise six-speed manual transmission in the Roadster model but also the even better driving retractable fastback (RF) model. Either way, 2019 MX-5s get an uprated engine that now makes 181 hp and revs to 7,500 rpm. And regardless of whether your Miata has a hard roof or a soft one, it’s one of the best manual transmissions available on any car at any price.
