MIK you can try luck with the lower end models.

 

Elantra/K3 and above they no longer have manual option.

 

Actually it sucks.. the korean 6 speed auto has very poor fuel consumption driving in SG, but so much better when in Malaysia on NSH. I would say the 6 speed auto is not built for city driving.

 

Other brands like sushi i not sure already.

Bo pian. Most people here damn lazy to change gear in traffic, so there's no market for manual any more.

 

Got a few left la I think, like Suzuki Swift Sport, Fiat Bravo, Proton Preve, Toyota 86, Subaru WRX STI, the China brands, and some performance models like Aston Martin, Lotus, BMW M3/M4 and the Mini JCW models.

I believe the Jazz 1.5RS has a manual version which Kah can bring in if you indent and I understand the price is about the same as the 1.3 auto version. Quite a good buy as the specs are good [thumbsup]

 

Not a sedan though.

Indent in volume mah. Got money, you want anything also can. Ang moh country still prefer manual over auto, so its wrong to say they are not manufacturing manual tranny cars.
