manuel has a stick transmission auto is automatic transmission A manual transmission is you shift gears manually by pressing the clutch as you increase speed, and overtime you will change clutch disk and has a better mileage than automatic transmission. Automatic transmission you don't need any shifting, the car does it for you.But the price of the car is a little bit higher like a thousand more or less.And you have to check your Transmission Fluid most of the time.
