Undeniably, the automatic transmission is becoming more and more popular for new vehicles. Good news: on the second hand side too, the choice of automatic transmission becomes very important.
For a long time, automatic transmissions were not very popular with us and rather evoked American cars. But in recent years, automatic transmissions have greatly improved. They have become faster and sometimes even allow you to consume less. On occasion, it is now easy to find a model equipped with an automatic transmission for less than 10,000 €. In addition to gasoline or diesel models with automatic transmission, you should know that all electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid models will also exempt their driver from having to change gears.

For less than 10,000 €, here we find the excellent Skoda Octavia Combi. Its 1.4l TSI 140 horsepower petrol engine is associated with the famous DSG gearbox of the Volkswagen group. Often fast, it lacks responsiveness in urban (re) start-ups..
This Smart Brabus, the most powerful of the range, is offered here for € 9,900. Unfortunately, the robotic box is not the most convincing on the market. Better to use it in manual mode.
