The Toyota Prius C does not come with a manual transmission; it only comes with a single powertrain—a hybrid engine paired with continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive.
Keep in mind that the Toyota Prius C was only produced from 2012 to 2019 as an ultra-affordable alternative to the Prius and the Yaris, both of which are still in production. If you want to shop new, you’ll have to opt for one of these models, although both come only with automatic transmissions, as well.
Looking for a small and affordable stick shift vehicle? Check out the 2022 Nissan Versa, which has a starting MSRP of $16,405 and comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission on base models. Of course, the option to upgrade to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is available, too. Higher trims will all come with automatic transmission.
