Why are automatics better?
An automatic car makes it easier to focus more on speed and road position – and you can keep both hands on the wheel as you won’t have to change gear. You’re also unlikely to stall in an automatic – which saves you the embarrassment of making a hash of hill starts or stalling just as the traffic lights change.
