Well, at times this can not be said but when it comes to overtaking any vehicle, you require a good amount of pick up in the vehicle which you will definitely get in Manual cars. Now, talking about the best one to pick. Please find below our inputs.

The reliability of these gearboxes are directly related to the wear and tear, the AMT still uses the clutch mechanism and the CVT does not use a clutch at all, as for the DSG, it requires a dual clutch to engage a gear.

CVT is the most probable gearbox for the reliability when it comes to daily commuting purpose, which will include traffic and a lot of 'stop and go' driving condition. This type of gearbox uses a single speed transmission, you might find this high revving & accelerating, however, there is not much of friction with several gears shifting.

The AMT gearbox is reliable too, it is as good as a manual gearbox of a particular model, it removes the hassle of manual use of the clutch through a pedal. The most important aspect of an AMT is that it is cost effective and you can experience an automatic gearbox in your first car.

As for the DSG, it is reliable when it comes to sports cars, DSG cannot be compared to the AMT or CVT, as the performance of the DSG is way too advanced compared to the other two gearboxes.
