Will Honda Launch BRIO Automatic in India?I am looking for Automatic Hatch and found Micra and Honda Brio good interms of mileage also because of CVT/iVTEC transmissions in these AT cars Can some one confirm?
Hi, am a first time car buyer... Have shortlisted Renault Kwid 1.0, but now confused between AMT vs Manual. Would like to know which will be better for a first time buyer like me in terms of city driving, handling, fuel efficiency and durability. Further would like to know AMT pros and cons.
It is great that you are planning for a new car. Kwid 1.0 with manual transmission has launched recently and Renault India confirmed that Kwid AMT will be launched within "this financial year".
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 doesnât 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.
I guess Mr. Pramod is correct here. There are several cars from different segments which provides good / best mileage in their segment. Please confirm the segment that you are looking for or the budget that you have planned so that we can suggest you accordingly.

Well, it's true. A new car takes time to accustom - the Engine, Piston, Fuel Lines all takes time to lubricate and initial mileage will be low. It generally takes upto 800 to 1000 kms for your car started to offer a better mileage. While at around 4000 - 5000 kms distance when covered, mileage will be at its best and will stabilize which even gets better on oil change at 7500 - 10,000 kms.
i have enjoy LTZ. my car mileage 14 km per liter, and two time oil empty after 1000 km, i have warranty but company said cant service in warranty, the problem is car drive just 66000 km in 2 years, it means company installed damaged engine in my car, how can i service in warranty
