Driving a car is all about comfort nowadays, isn’t it? Manufacturers all over the world try to make the driving experience as pleasant as possible. Part of the idea involves getting rid of manual gearboxes. More and more cars now come without the need to shift a gear lever.

It is slightly wrong to say “a car without gears” because there is a gearbox – it just shifts on its own. Of course, this isn’t the place and time to dabble into how exactly auto gearboxes work. All you need to know at this point is that AGS stands for “Auto Gear Shift” and this is the formal name of this type of transmission.

So now that you’ve realized how convenient it is to not have a clutch and gear stick, how about we mention some of the more popular automatic cars in the UK market. Car sales in the UK nowadays involve predominantly automatic cars but here are the ones that stand out.

Here Are Our Choices

Mini Cooper is the classic UK-made brand and in 2017 and 2018 the company really came up with some impressive models. The CVT model hasn’t received just a facelift but over the years, the vehicle has been overhauled almost completely. The fully automatic gearboxes of the Mini’s also feature the Tiptronic function which allows you to change a gear manually just by pushing the stick one way or the other.

Honda and Nissan are not British brands, but the former is assembled in Swindon and the latter is constructed in Sunderland. Both brands are Asian, so the quality of their automatic gearboxes is guaranteed. The “P” setting stands for “parking” and it will allow you to have your car parked without the need to use the handbrake.

Lotus is a name which originates from the UK, and these top-end cars are made in Norfolk. Since we are talking about a vehicle which is basically a roadster, the gearbox really matters. This is why Lotus has integrated some advanced software and the gearbox is operated by pressing buttons and not moving a stick. If you don’t want to take your hands off the wheel, you can switch the gears from there as well.
