go for the auto, super smooth changes and you get the ECO mode. got rid of the jeep liberty (20 mpg)and now average just under 40. good interior space. i'm 6' and can easily fit behind the drivers seat when its in its position for me. wider than the previous model and so quiet. would recommend a test drive to anyone
