The S and SE trim levels have an option of the auto or the manual. I believe the auto is a 6 speed. But I'm not entirely certain...something I should probably know.

Is the 6-speed really an auto? I've driven it and thought it was a double-clutched, computer controlled tranny; not the same thing at all. But I could be wrong.

It is in fact a double-clutch transmission. I've been pretty pleased with it.

Yeah Same here I have the red candy se with the same exact options and yes the auto is in fact an automated dual clutch 6 speed manual and sometimes it's nice but at other times shift timing kinda sucks but hey I get great mpg with it lol
