I think Automatic transmission is more successful on indian roads...I do not agree that it affects engine performance,,,,however affects car mileage and is more expensive.

In my opinion, we Indians are more cost sensitive than car buyers in any other developed country...so we prefer manual transmission as it is cheaper and require low maintenance as compare to automatic transmission. As car makers want to reach more and more people they try to keep cost as low as possible... so almost all low cost cars in the range of upto 7 lakhs come with a manual transmission option.
However, the trend is changing in India and more and more buyers are now opting for Automatic transmission. And the good news is some car makers have started providing Automatic transmission even in small cars like Hyundai i10 and Hyundai i20.

Even, i am unable to drive manual giar car in Delhi and auto transmission choice is limited and very expansive. Vinay

Hi Ravi, Automatic Transmission is not suitable for India roads because it effects the engine performance and also it offers less mileage in comparison with manual gear level. Moreover on our Indian roads the traffic is more. Thank You
