Transmission

automatic > manual
A stick shift that is placed in the Volkswagen Passat CC is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use but also it is less comfortable because there is no need to work with the clutch and shift speeds and it can be lot of inconvenience in a bussy urban traffic where we have lots of frequent stop and go conditions. An automatic transmission which is installed in the BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 Facelifting 320i 170HP automatic with gears in the amount of 6 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better one.
