Is there a city car with a decent auto box left?

Dual-clutch transmissions are expensive while torque converter gearboxes aren't great for emissions which is why manufacturers are increasingly offering automated manuals in small city cars (or not providing an automatic gearbox at all). You might have to look at cars a size up for a decent automatic gearbox - consider a Suzuki Swift or Hyundai i20.
