I'm sorry to hear that. :/ Are MTs still generally popular in Brazil, like they are in Europe?

Sadly MTs are becoming pretty scarce in the U.S. I was really surprised that Toyota (known for being pretty conservative) decided to make a MT 'sport' model of the Corolla with the 2020 redesign. It even has an auto rev-matching feature -- a clear nod to enthusiasts. Their gesture worked for this enthusiast, but I fear Toyota will sell so few MT models that they'll switch to CVT-only in short order.
