I was planning to learn automatic because apparently it's easier but now manual is also appealing to me because you can drive both manual and auto whereas with auto its harder to drive manual. I'm 17 so was wondering what other people my age drive. Also is it true that most SUVs are manual? I hope one day to get one and don't want to be at a disadvantage if I can only drive auto. Thank you!

Learn in a manual, it’s not that complicated and then sets you up for either. I would not say that most SUV are manual, probably the opposite

Manual no question. It's really not hard and you'd regret learning automatic.

I would say manual but all hybrid cars are automatic

Learn manual. It’s more common to find a driving instructor and most cars for young people which are cheaper to buy and less to insure are manual. You can easily transition to automatic if you prefer a car which is an automatic
