For some reason I'm leaning toward the manual trannie just because I'm not too familiar with CVT transmission and I generally find manual transmission more fun to drive. Both are brilliant silver in color.
Just looking for other points of view.
If you enjoy driving a manual transmission, I would go with that choice. Nissan has had a lot of issues with their CVT transmissions, and I am talking from personal experience. I have a 2012 Versa sedan, and drive like a little old lady. At just over 12,000 miles, my cvt went south, and it was replaced under warranty. Nissan has such confidence in their CVTs that the new one was warranted for only 12 month or 12,000 miles, which ever comes first..............NOT MUCH CONFIDENCE. The issue with their CVTs is so bad, that they have so called "new"? replacement cvts in the pipeline ready to go to the dealer on a moments notice. Good luck with whatever you decide to buy.
