Automatic transmissions are the smaller luxuries of life when they added up to the cars and make your life even easier
When it comes to the driving pleasure, there always are two opinions, one is in favor of the manual transmissions and the other is for the automatic transmissions. A decade ago, manual lovers were more than those who actually love to have automatic transmissions but now the table has turned. The automatic transmission has become a necessity while a decade ago it was a luxury. With the passage of time, the driving habits have emerged and people have started preferring the automated things rather than selecting the manual processes.
Almost every aspect of life has been shifted over automated technologies, from wheel chairs to the buses and from home garages to the car, everything is automatic. And why they shouldn’t be? They actually sooth away the stress and make the life easier. Automatic cars, on the other hand, simplify the tasks of the life in the heavy traffic when it is hard for a driver to select a correct gear. This is where an automatic transmission comes in and improve the performance and fuel economy at the same time.
There is not a single type of automatic transmissions, there is a lot, where a dual clutch transmission, automated manual transmission, and continuously variable transmission, are very common. All of them called DCT, AMT, and CVT respectively.
It is really common for luxury cars these days that they come with automatic transmissions as standard and these transmissions remain the only option. On the smaller models, these transmissions become the optional feature. All it depends on the trim level and vehicle type. Its again quiet differ in the overall costs, most of the times automatic transmissions remain more fuel economical than the manuals now.
Here is the list of the best automatic cars offered in the market

Volkswagen Polo DSG
The direct shift gearboxes or the DSG transmissions are famous across the VW and Audi lineup, where a car of Polo size is using the seven speed automatic transmission.

It offers a smooth, comfortable and stress free gear shifting process and has a number of options available in the used market of the UK. If you think that the POLO is not of your type vehicle, go for a 1.0 litre EcoBoost model from Ford, go for Fiesta then.
SEAT Leon DSG
In its many adverts, VW has talked about the cars like GOLF, the Leon is one of those cars and it has a majority of parts shared with the Golf. It also uses the same 7 speed DSG transmission which is being used by the Golf and Polo models in the UK market.
