Buying guide actually updated to 2021

Post by Standardshifter »

Last buying guide was 2013... Just updated it to the 2021 model year. List gets shorter every year. Will be looking back over the past 10 years for a comparison later this month, but for now: https://www.standardshift.com/buyingguide.html.

Audi returned to manual transmissions with the 2021 A3. Unfortunately, they decided to skip the 2021 model year for that model in the USA. So we will have to wait and see if the new 2022 model keeps the manual transmission or not.

I can't believe Honda got rid of the manual in all of their Acura products as well as the Accord. Mazda pretty much only has the 3 and the Miata. 6 is destined for the scrap heap. The base Golf is gone etc.

It is interesting how Subaru is keeping on the manual.
