Engine stop-start technology has proliferated in automatic-transmission cars as automakers try to squeeze additional efficiency from internal combustion engines, but they’ve figured out how to bring the fuel-saving feature to stick-shift cars, too. In the Porsche 718 Cayman, for instance, the engine can shut off to save fuel when the car is stopped, the gear selector is in Neutral and the clutch pedal is released. Depress the clutch to get into gear and the engine restarts.
Besides the ubiquitous smartphone, lots of other stuff has become “smart” — watches, thermostats, doorbells and more. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback’s manual transmission has grown smarter, too, and it can do things that previously required plenty of practice. Downshift rev-matching is one such feature, but the car can also automatically adjust engine speed to minimize lurching during an ill-timed shift. Cars.com reviewer Brian Wong also observed that you can get the car moving on a level surface using just the clutch pedal. Combined, these characteristics make the hatchback a good choice to learn how to drive a manual.
Before practicing running the car, the novice driver must memorize the gear shift position. Also understand the technique while stepping on the clutch and brake pedals.
