Best Automatic Cars in India - 2022

There are 4 Different Types of Automatic Cars - on Sale in India

» Torque Converter (as Essentially Conventional Automatic in 4 Speed to 7 Speed Automatic): As is Popular on Cars for Long. Here in - the Gears are Changed basis Set Speed and RPM Criteria. Been Ofcourse, higher the number of Gears - better the Mileage, Acceleration and Pep.

» CVT Automatic (aka IVT): With Infinite Gears, every Single Km of Speed has its Own Gear Ratio. Advantage of Mileage and Low End Drive-ability Output. Disadvantage for Enthusiast - where the Car just lags on feel of Sudden Surge 

» DCT Automatic (aka DSG) : Latest Technology, wherein it has dual Clutch - one each for Odd & Even Gear Shift. You upshift and downshift and gets an immediate response at almost less than 1 Milli Second. Popular in Diesel, Ideal for Enthusiast looking for Quick Performance Output  

» Auto Gear Shift (aka AMT): Although technically AMT are not Automatic, but basis fact that there is no Manual Clutch Pedal for Driver and Car changes gear on its own through Actuators - they are loosely been referred as Automatics. For Budget Friendly Technology, to give a feel of Automatic Cars as the Clutch Mechanism is governed by Actuator and Ideal for Day to Day City Drive. Disadvantage is - Lacks Smoothness of Conventional Automatic 



Also, for Convenience of Buyers in Manual Transmission - Hyundai and Kia India introduced IMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission) where there is no clutch pedal, but gear shifts are done by Driver. Only added convenience is 

  • Freedom from Manual Clutch Pedal
  • Creep Mode in 1st and 2nd Gear

But IMT is not Automatic and essentially - they are best placed in Manual Transmission only

Below are best Automatic Cars with all Prices as Ex-showroom as on date

 

Best Automatic Cars of 2022 in Entry Segment Hatchback (5 Lakh to 6 Lakh)

To View basis AMT Responsiveness if you seek Best AMT Car in Entry Segment:-

  • Maruti S Presso Vxi Plus AMT 
  • Hyundai Santro Magna & Sportz AMT

are what recommended if almost near 100% of Drive is within City Usage, where you drive in controlled speed. Both Cars are suited for City Usage and somehow high speed steering feedback is very average and S Presso infact has higher body roll too. 

Choose in Santro AMT if not very stringent on budget - feels premium in Cabin and AMT response feels better than S Presso too and arch rival Wagon R AMT too

Disclaimer: There is Safety Concern in both Cars, hence recommended only if having Maximum Usage in Controlled Speed

Best Automatic Cars in 7 Lakh to 9 Lakh Price Budget

If your budget is in range of 7 Lakh onwards then we recommend to increase a bit and should move ahead from AMT and rather check out Proper Automatic as CVT Automatic as what offered in Maruti Baleno and Honda Amaze is better

The Refinement of CVT is unmatched and is like big level leap up over Budget AMT Transmission.

Choose Amaze if your majority (almost 95%) usage is in City as this car is what best meant for City Use, while choose Baleno if your usage is mix of both City and Highway as somehow Maruti Baleno has rather stiffer suspension for superior high speed dynamics

or Care for Performance then VW Polo is ideal

No, CVT by definition is Continuous Variable transmission, which means the ratios can be adjusted continuously.
When they come with a paddle shifter (6/7 Spd normally), they fix 6/7 ratios for the speed.
