Hard to find new manual transmission car these days?

Searched on sgcarmart, only saw a malaysia made car that is =< 1600, other brand all above 1600cc

Checked with KAH motors about the availability for honda city manual and they said honda stopped production for manual already, only the luxury version got "manual" driving which is paddler shift.

Any other source to get new =<1600 manual transmission sedan?

How is the feeling of driving with paddler shift?

Little market demand and technology advances means ADs very unlikely to bring in manual cars.

Paddler shifts are gimmicky IMO. You just control when the automatic transmission shifts gears, that's all. The computer actually shifts better than you do if you leave it alone.

If you want you can try getting some PI to do imports of UK cars.
