So,do I think my driving skills with a manual transmission is better than the Powershift?After driving two identical transmissions operating totally differently.The Answer is YES.
Like I said previously,I now own a 2012 Elantra with a 6 speed manual.Even if the engine is smaller ,it's easier the exploit the performance through a manual transmission.
Ironic since the DCT is a manual...
That has no clutch you need to operate...
Which gives gear changes human hands can only dream of achieving...
