Recommended Posts

Neutral Newbie

The new Subaru Impreza just launched today in Singapore. As expected, no manual transmission available in Singapore. But it's available in USA for the base model.

You can PM me if keen on importing the new Impreza in Manual Transmission.

Thanks.

Even if manual transmission car were available, I am pretty sure the version would be specced down. For example, Proton in Malaysia price and specced their manual tranny cars the lowest. No six airbags for you, Sir.

Yes u are right, UK civic is hatchback body style.

Hatchback is more practical, with a larger boot opening.

How much would this UK Civic cost for the manual version? Does you have a physical showroom in which we could see this model?

TBH, who will really go buy a manual car here? It's quite troublesome to drive a manual in Singapore.

True lah, but then it's comfortable to drive auto in a city like Singapore, easy to move off the line, can hold partners hand when driving and moving off the line, no need to care about people stopping too near to your back when stopping at slope etc. =P

You have a GT86 icon. If you have that car, please, please tell me you bought the manual. That car is terrible to drive in auto form. Yes, I've tried both.

I find driving manual more engaging. Auto drive seems very mundane and your left limbs do not need to move often...no good for blood circulation...lol

 

Best of all, manual gearbox very robust, can subject to whacking and low cost maintenance
