They are so different it's like the difference between night and day. Most manual transmissions have a single dry friction clutch disk. Whereas an automatic uses several wet friction clutch packs- each used together/in combination under hydraulic pressure to obtain the different ratios of the transmission. Go to the Library and read books about them. Though automatic transmissions are more fascinating than manuals because of their complexity, the stick is more fun to drive.

Are all VW Beetles manual transmission?

Most were and some aren't. Answer #2: In the older classic Beetles most of them were manual transmissions, they also had something called an autostick transmission. You used a clutch to take off but then only had to press a button on the shifter when switching gears instead of pressing in the clutch pedal. The new Beetles can be bought with either automatic or stick shift transmissions, I'm sure the automatic outsells the stick.
