Overall, manual transmission engines are less complex and weigh less. The end result is that you'll end up getting more kilometres out of the petrol you pump in than you would with an automatic. Cars with manual transmission consume 5%-15% less fuel depending on road conditions and driving habits.
Apart from this - Manual transmission don't need as much maintenance as automatics and when they do, the repair costs are much cheaper.
Ultimately, it is the way you drive your car that will have the biggest impact on efficiency.
Please let me know as to when is Mahindra launching XUV500 in Petrol engine version, as Shri Pawan Goenka had given a statement that the same would be launched in this year. So what is the probable date of its launch.
Mahindra & Mahindra confirmed that the petrol variants of the Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra XUV500 will be launched. They are expected to arrive either late this year or in the first half of 2017, however, there is no announcement of the launch date yet.
Hyundai Grand i10 is available with two engine options. First is 1.2-litre Kappa VTVT Petrol Engine and the other is 1.1-litre U2 CRDi Diesel Engine.
Coming to the transmission - Both petrol and diesel variants of Grand i10 offer light weight and robust 5-speed manual transmission for smooth and accurate gearshifts. Thus, delivering optimum performance. Driving in traffic is a breeze with 4-speed automatic transmission available in the 1.2 Kappa petrol "Magna and Asta (O)" variants.
On the other hand, the clutch action is long, but quite light and the 5-speed manual gearbox is one of the slickest shifters in its segment. The innovative digital gear shift reminder recommends optimum gear so as to extract maximum mileage.
Hence, Hyundai Grand i10 is a great value for money, and yes, you can rely on its transmission. Rest, a test drive can give you a better clarity on it.
I intend to upgrade my Bolero to TUV300. I am very apprehensive to make this change due to the various negative user feed back on this vehicle. Besides the stoic silence from the manufacturers . I wonder if I should look at some other similar vehicle.
Both cars are quite different performance wise, Bolero is a traveller and it isn't that performance oriented. TUV on the other hand offers good competition, it has 1.5 litre, 3 cylinder unit that churns out 84 bhp with the manual transmission and 81 bhp with the AMT which delivers good fuel efficiency but it can be a hiccup while driving in bumper to bumper traffic in lower revs and expect a slight lag on higher revs. The rear seats of TUV aren't that comfortable either. Thus, other options can also be considered.

Diesel has its major advantage of low fuel cost and better mileage but when it comes to service and maintenance it will cost you more than petrol. As you mentioned, the daily running of your car will be 100 kms - we recommend you to opt for the diesel variant as it will be more economical for you when it comes to the overall running cost.
Moreover, the maintenance cost of diesel cars is higher than petrol cars. This is because consumables like engine oil and spares used in diesel vehicles are more expensive.The resale value of a used diesel car is higher than that of a petrol car.
