Thanks to their relaxing driving characteristics, comfort and ease, cars with automatic gearboxes are becoming increasingly popular. Allowing you to take your foot off the clutch, an automatic gives you one less thing to worry about on the road, which is especially useful if you frequently find yourself driving in heavy traffic. 

In most cases automatics are just as responsive and efficient as their manual counterparts nowadays - if not more so! From small cars to sports coupes, we’ve listed our top automatics below… 


Best automatic small car

The Vauxhall Corsa has earned its reputation as a stylish and comfortable supermini over the years. There’s a variety of different trims available on the Corsa, including Design, SE, and the more sporty SRi models. 

With its light controls and compact dimensions, the Vauxhall Corsa is great for urban driving. Add to this the convenience of the automatic gearbox, and you can expect stress-free journeys without sacrificing fuel economy too much. Despite being an automatic, Vauxhall claims it can achieve a very decent MPG of around 48.

Best value automatic car

Rivalling the likes of the Corsa, is the bestselling and much admired Ford Fiesta. It mixes everyday practicality with fun handling, while sensible pricing and low running costs make it a great value choice in our eyes. Combining the automatic gearbox with Ford’s powerful and efficient EcoBoost engines, the Fiesta should be a real contender for your next car. 

The Fiesta’s compact size makes it great for new drivers and city dwellers. But in spite of this, you’ll find it’s surprisingly spacious inside with enough room for four adults to travel comfortably.

Best automatic 4x4

The BMW X1 is a well-built and versatile 4x4 with premium looks. It’s a comfortable, compact car that inspires confidence on the roads, and a five star Euro NCAP safety rating should give you peace of mind behind the wheel. 

The X1 is packed with superb convenience features to make your drives easier, like a start/stop button, automatic tailgate, and foldable rear seats. Opting for an automatic adds yet another layer of convenience, saving you the hassle of changing gears so you can focus on the journey ahead.

Best automatic family car

The Nissan Juke has all the winning ingredients for a brilliant family car: space, practicality, and a good range of convenience features. When you add its distinctive looks and high-riding stance to the mix, the Juke is widely considered to be a great all-rounder. Choosing automatic transmission means you’ll get smooth driving with less effort.

The Juke is spacious inside with plenty of legroom, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and a decent sized boot, which are all sure to get a big tick from large families.

Best automatic sports coupe

Lavish looks meet comfort and luxury in the form of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Selecting the automatic gearbox means you’re in for a more relaxing drive, while features like Active Park Assist will ensure you arrive at your destination cool, calm and collected.

And as you’d expect from a sports coupe, it delivers fantastic performance. The seven-speed automatic gearbox is smooth and doesn’t jerk at low speeds, making it great for driving in traffic as well as on the open road.
