An automatic car has an automatic gearbox (transmission) which doesn’t require you to manually shift gears.
The gearbox uses sensors to analyse road and speed conditions to switch gears on its own as the car moves, which eliminates the use of a gear stick to do so.
You can easily tell the difference between an automatic car as it has two pedals compared to a manual car which has the clutch as the third pedal.
Automatic cars usually only have four gear modes: Park, reverse, Neutral and Drive.
This is simply due to specialist (low) demand from the number of drivers who want to buy an automatic car over those who want to buy the manual version of the car.
Automatic cars may hold more value than the manual equivalents when it is time to sell and upgrade to a new car.
You may find driving an automatic car is easier than a manual car due to it having a reduced number of gear modes and the ability to stop or start using only one pedal.
You don’t have to change gears manually, as an automatic car does this on its own.
You don’t have to worry about clutch control.
