FAQs

Which is the cheapest automatic car in India?

The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso at a price range of ₹5.19 – 5.29 lakhs is the most affordable automatic money can buy.

What is the difference between AMT and CVT?

Both AMT and CVT are different types of automatic transmissions. AMT stands for Automated Manual Transmission while CVT stands for Continuous Variable Transmission. As their name suggests, AMT allows manual shifting of gears by the car through a system on sensors and actuators. CVT, on the other hand, doesn’t use gears but two conical pulleys connected by a belt to the engine. The belt diameter can be increased or decreased by the pulleys to change gear ratios, which is why CVTs are smoother than AMTs.

Is the Maruti Suzuki Ignis a good car?

Absolutely. While the Ignis may not be a wildly popular car it is reliable and robust. Plus it offers automatic transmission as well.

Why is CVT Transmission expensive?

A CVT transmission is entirely different from AMT which is a kit that can be factory fitted. CVT on the other hand doesn’t use gears and is, therefore, constructed differently. This is the reason it’s costlier than AMT.

Which is the most affordable safest automatic car?

The Tata Tiago, with a 4-star Global NCAP rating, is the safest automatic car on the list.
