In ANHC you make faster shifts by mannually moving the selector lever which questions the reason for a paddle shift - therefore more known as a gizmo feel good - drive some german (MB/Beemer etc paddle shift you will get what I am saying)
Of course, Beemers and Skodas would have much better AT/Paddleshifts/tripronics. But I was happy to see what Honda has offered in this price segment.
I am little confused about what you wrote about majority-conventional autos. Most of them won't have provisions to shift the gear manually.
ANHC also doen't not have provision to change gear by moving the selector.

@canonball
Purpose of 1,2,3 (D1, D2 etc in some cars) is different then the paddleshift on ANHC (or Civic)
When you slot the lever D3, it restrics the gear changes to first 3 gears. It is not the same as slotting a manual stick to 3rd gear (same thing with D1, D2). But you can do the equivalent of this in ANHC using paddleshifts.
ANHC has a 'S' mode where it restricts the gear chnages within first 4 gears.
D1, D2... positions are present to tackle differnt situatins like steep inclines and are not meant to be used on a regular basis in a normal driving situations. Using paddles on ANHC/Civic or triptronics on some cars is different from this.
PS:Sorry for going OT. May be we should discuss this in another thread
