what's up and downside of dzire AMT if compare with manual transmission ?
Which is more suitable for you-AMT or manual? It depends on your driving requirements. If you like complete control of the car and better fuel economy, manual transmission is the way to go. However, if the thought of driving doesnÃ¢ÂÂt fill you with joy, an automatic is by far the easiest option.
A lot of town or city driving means lots of gear changing. If it is about city driving, AMT will be better but when it comes about fuel efficiency, durability and handling - manual transmission is a better option. Automated Manual Transmission commonly called AMT is basically a manual transmission car in which the operation of the clutch and the gear changing is done automatically with the help of a computerised electro-hydraulic mechanism.
An AMT car will not have a clutch and the gear lever will only have the options of Neutral, Reverse and Forward. There is also the control to upshift or downshift the gear manually with the +/- option. The upshift or downshift +/- option on the gear lever helps to select the gear, for example when you want to overtake you can shift to a lower gear (from 4th to 3rd gear for example) just by tapping the AMT gear shift stick. You press the accelerator and rev up the engine at the lower gear and you will get the necessary acceleration required to overtake.
Another very important advantage of an AMT automatic car is that the AMT car will not roll backwards when you stop and go on an uphill slope. In a manual car you have to be an expert using the clutch and brakes together to avoid rolling backwards when you stop and start on an upwards slope.
Manual transmission don't need as much maintenance as automatics and when they do, the repair costs are much cheaper. Manual transmission boxes are lighter than automatics. It's much easier for an automatic transmission to overheat. Cars with manual transmission consume 5%-15% less fuel depending on road conditions and driving habits.
