It is great that you wish to buy a new car, we will be more than happy to help you. CVT is a type of automatic transmission, CVT stands for Constantly Variable Transmission. Talking about pickup, it depends on the torque of your car regardless of the transmission. Thus, pick up is going to be the same. On the other hand, it is going to affect the mileage of your car and maintenance also. Comfort is going to be better with CVT transmission as you don't have to switch gears every now and then while driving in traffic. Choice of transmission totally depends on you and your requirements. If you drive in cities and in traffic mostly, you should go for CVT otherwise manual transmission is a good choice. Also, if you go for Zeta CVT, you miss out on some vital features like touch screen infotainment system, SATNAV, Brake Assist etc. Thus, we would suggest you to go for Alpha instead of Zeta CVT.
