The art of heel-and-toe shifting was once a prerequisite to get the most performance from manual transmission, but downshift rev-matching technology now makes anyone look like a pro. Found primarily on performance cars like the Nissan 370Z and Honda Civic Type R, this feature automatically adjusts engine speed to the gear you’ve selected for smooth, seamless downshifts. It’s particularly helpful during demanding racetrack driving, but it can make your favorite winding road even more enjoyable, too.
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.
For people who are just learning to drive a car for the first time it will be difficult to practice. Not infrequently when it feels proficient, many drivers who panic when behind the wheel, especially those with manual transmissions.
