Mini Will Drop The Stick For US?

By  | 

It looks like stick drivers will have to cross Mini off their list for the time being as the automaker might not be offering a manual transmission option for some time.

MotoringFile reported that Mini did come across some issue with their emission certification and that it is taking longer than expected. Due to the delay, there might not be able to offer their manual transmission option here.

Luckily, it will only be for a few months as a Mini spokesman did say that Mini still wants to offer a manual transmission and that they expect the delay could last 1 month to 4 months.

With more and more automaker choosing to remove the manual transmission option from their line up, it looks like buyers are having a much smaller pool to choose from now. Hopefully, this delay from Mini will only last for a short period of time.
