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?
I am planning to buy a diesel hatchback but confused whether to go for ELITE I20 or VW POLO. My budget is 8.5 - 8.8 lakh. My priority is Low maintenance Cost, Fuel Economy Long life. Which car would be better for me among these?
Well, referring to your requirements, I would suggest you to go for i20 as Polo undoubtedly has better built quality and premium interiors. However, it isn't that pocket friendly to maintain. Hyundai has a great service network in India and hence, it is easy to maintain i20. Also, the fuel economy is good with i20. Click here to check out the comparison.
No, we haven't heard about any such issue for poor mileage. The Baleno has proven itself in every aspect. Rest, the engine which has been used is 1.2 dualjet and 1.3 diesel engine which is from Fiat.
The Redi Go claims a maximum mileage of 25.17 KMPL (Highway) and 21.38 KMPL (City). For more information, please click here.
The mileage, features, and whichever details that are mentioned on the CarDekho website regarding any car is the one which is claimed by the brand.
Coming to the mileage specifically - The mentioned fuel economy figures are the same as claimed by the brand. However, the actual mileage cannot be determined. It can vary, depending upon the factors like environmental conditions, way of driving etc.
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.
