One of the greatest joys of driving is making a perfectly timed shift, dancing on the clutch pedal, and perfectly matching the revs as you race through the gears. Unless you’ve driven a car with a manual gearbox, it’s a sensation you’ll never experience. 

Unfortunately, the list of cars you can enjoy with a manual transmission gets shorter each year. According to data from J.D. Power and Green Car Reports, sales of vehicles with manual transmissions have declined to the point that they're being outsold by electric cars. Vehicles with stick shifts are truly a tiny slice of the American new car market.

The prices shown are the least expensive model available with a manual.
