Choosing an Automatic Car

When buying a new car, there are a lot of decisions to make. Do you want a petrol, or a diesel model? Should you be considering an electric or a hybrid? Does a hatchback or a crossover suit your needs most? And, of course, do you want a car with a manual or an automatic gearbox?

>> If you have further questions about automatic cars, read our auto FAQ page here.

As your local highlands car company, Dicksons are ideally placed to help you make these decisions – and if it’s an automatic car that you are after we have a wide and varied selection for you to choose from. Why not visit our Inverness showroom to test drive your favourite automatic car?

Why Choose an Automatic Car?

A manual car has a gearstick that allows you to choose the gear that is most appropriate for the conditions. An automatic, however, has a gearbox that automatically selects the most appropriate gear as you drive. Not only does this save you the effort and decision, but nowadays enhanced technology means the gears chosen are better and more intelligent – meaning the drive experience is more enjoyable.  

Automatic Suzuki Cars from Your Local Suzuki Dealer

Whether you are after a compact hatchback or a roomy SUV, the Suzuki range on show in our highlands dealership will have the automatic transmission option for you. In fact, most Suzuki models have an automatic or a semi-automatic model. For those who don’t know, a semi-auto transmission lets you tell the car what gear you prefer, but then the car helps get you into that gear neatly – a compromise between control and experience!
