6 Speed - because it is the only way to drive.

Truthfully, the auto sounds nice, but I think the enthusiasts on here will prolly stick with the manual.

Good choice.

This will be my commuter so i'm not too sure just yet what I want to do. A lot of people complain about how annoying manual can be in traffic, I don't want to have any regrets.

Manual for me as well! I much prefer manual simply for more control and feel of the car. I also feel that manual does give less problem with less electronics. It comes down to drivers preference and experience with manual transmissions.

i'd advise everyone here to test out the 7-speed using an iM or the current corolla S, sounds like it will be a fun automatic:

______

The Corolla S CVTi-S offers a Sport-mode that helps deliver a more dynamic driving experience with software tuning that alters shift points, creating transmission behavior during acceleration that enhances the sporty character of the S-grade. Sport mode is not a track focused mode, but rather a transmission setting that, along with unique electric power steering programming, helps create a sportier driving sensation during normal road and highway driving. The new CVTi-S’ 7-speed sport sequential shiftmatic mode can be actuated through steering wheel mounted paddle shifters or the shift gate. A plus or minus symbol in the gate allows drivers to make fast, sequential, stepped shifts to help enhance the driving experience. The Corolla S console shifter also offers a manual shift gate (M position) that allows drivers to make brisk upshifts or downshifts using the shift lever. The shift step will automatically be engaged if the engine revolutions become high enough or down shifted if they become low enough. The M modeactivity is displayed in the display of the Corolla S combination meter. The Corolla’s Sport mode was developed and evaluated on roads within the key global markets to help ensure a more energetic drive across a broad range of conditions. The base model Corolla CE is offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission. The 6-speed manual is also available in the Corolla S.

I'm not super excited about a CVT but I don't really know how to drive manual. I'm hoping that the CVT is a good one and lets you feel the shift between gears.

It will only take one day of driving a manual car to feel it out. After that you won't want to drive anything else. Much more enjoyable IMO.

This is true.

My experience was just that my first time driving a manual transmission vehicle.

Getting a feel for the clutch is important, don't want to keep on stalling.

I'd like to learn how to drive one, but I'm not sure I would want to own one, at least not with a car like the iM. Maybe in a little roadster or something like that.
