The EX and SX models comes with a Standard 6 speed automatic transmission and the LX and Koup come standard with a 6 speed Manual trans. Not sure what you are asking.

Short answer: 6 speed Automatic provides better fuel economy & performance compared to 4 or 5 speed Automatics. Check out this Kia link that does a very nice job of explaining the 6 speed Automatic and what makes it special: http://kia-buzz.com/independently-developed-6-speed-automatic-transmission/
