Volvo uses the word 'Geartronic' to describe it's automatic gearboxes - it's a 6 speed gearbox that's beautifully smooth and doesn't really affect performance times with 0-60 being about the same whether you go for manual or auto. The price for the step up over the manual version is around £1,500 and strangely if you select either the petrol T2 or T3 models you actually get a different engine - a 1.5 litre rather than the 2.0 litre that you get with manual models, and even more strangely performance is identical between the two. Official fuel economy figures jump slightly when you pick the auto due to it's ability to pick a more efficient fuel-saving gear.
