They'd have to be fools not to offer an automatic version. As much as I love manual transmissions, it would be stupid to exclude a huge market of drivers who either can't or don't like to drive stick. I sold off my Focus last year, but am seriously considering ditching my A3 TDI if the new ST drives as well as we all hope. I won't lie though, I love my current ability to choose between an automatic or paddle shifters. I can pick my gears when I'm driving, but still know the car will have a clutch left when my girlfriend borrows it. Wish I could say the same for my Jeep.
