Automatic cars in India

First big task after moving back from US was to buy a car. After seeing the crowded and chaotic traffic at Bangalore, I knew it had to be an automatic. Vote for automatic was clinched after I decided to count the number of times I shifted gears on JP Nagar to Whitefield drive. Guess? I stopped counting after 200, and I had only hit Sarjapur Road junction by then.

I assumed I would have a few models to choose from. OK, No automatic M800, Alto or Indica, but how about the rest of the bigger cars? Surprisingly, there were only two realistic options less than Rs 10 lakhs (roughly US $ 20000). Hyundai Santro and Honda City!

When I went to the Honda dealer, I asked how many CVTs they sold. I was told 1 in 9 they sell is a CVT. CVT stands for continuous variable transmission, a new type of automatic transmission.
nhc
Agreed, its not as if the rest of the world – even developed world – has completely switched away from manual transmission. “In 2002, 10 percent of vehicles sold in the United States and Canada were equipped with manual gearboxes”. However, Europe is far behind. “In the United Kingdom, automatic transmission installations are on pace to reach 15 percent of all models, up from 13.5 percent five years ago, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.”

Automatic means driving comfort, and I assumed guys paying more than Rs 6-7 Lakhs for a car will be looking to pay and get it. Of course I made wrong assumptions there.

The most important consideration for indian car buyers is mileage. Even when one buys a car for 10 lakhs here! Next, buyers of relatively expensive cars are most likely to be sitting in the backseat. Why spend the extra money on an automatic when the driver is going to have all the fun? And third, there is this word around here that automatic transmission is prone to maintenance problems. My CVT is only an year old (I have written a review here), so I am yet to know if this is true.

Whatever. I enjoy driving a the CVT. Its simply the best city car available in India. Bit underpowered, bit tight on suspension – let me save the details for a review – but still, comfortable to be in.

PS1: Yes, Maruti makes a few automatic models, but those have bad outdated auto boxes. I suspect they may have helped these anti-automatic feelings.

PS2: A very similar discussion on team-bhp, a must-see forum if you are seeking info on cars in India.

PS3: I have since written a review of City CVT.

  1. Sir,
    I made so many attempt to get a maruti esteemax a/t. Many times I wrote direct to maruti, but unfortunately they are not interestede in ,A automatic car , if I say is confortable, eassy,no tress to drive.Her in USA 99.9 percent cars are built with automatic transmission and also withy a reasonable price.
    A toyota carolla with a/c., automatictransmission,mpower sterring,power windows all that cost onle $15000.00 or less.But in India ?
    I realy own Lincoln Navigator the laxury american car, BMW Bugg,Toyota Matric and Carolla.Anybody can buy a car here without any hassel.In India if you have cash,still too hard to buy; as I explained above , How can I buy a Maruti Esteem AX A/T? Why nobody response to my e-mail even all the dealers in Kerals negelected to reply.The best way to introduce a automatic car is make them availavle in the market and also make aware of the4 public the eassy way of driving insted of struglling with manuel trans
    mission.It may take time but why can`t they provide one who is ready to buy? I have no answer. Do you have?

    • Hi Natesan,

      I am really sorry that ur going thru all the trouble in getting a automatic car. Maybe u will find success if you learn better english communication.
      Thanks
      Anita

      • I can not believe people like you still exist in India. someone out there is tryng to buy an automatic car and if you are jealous about it, just shut your mouth and mind your business. Instead you SMS in a full reply post and make a fool of yourself. Anyways, I think it is so entertaining for all of us to see such goof upers like you.
        Hope you will become smart enough not to do such self humiliating things, even on a bad day…
        dars

      • Hi Anita,

        What has knowledge of English has to do with buying an automatic car? Or are you thinking to become his mistress, if he knew prefect English?

      • I think Ms. Anita has a point, even though I won’t say that poor english is a big mistake. (I don’t think Ms. Anita has abused Mr. Natesan)

        If I was at the one at Maruti to receive the message and the language is as in the above post, probably I may not reply. May be I’ll pass it on to someone else. And that is because the language makes the person look a bit illiterate (generally, unless we know he is literate) and it’s very difficult to deal with people who are illiterate (it’s difficult to make them understand what we have to say).

        I would recommend Mr. Natesan to send an email after getting it reviewed by somebody who’s better in english. Or better call the people over phone and speak in his mother tongue.

      • Well, I am no English teacher, but english or English? And is it a automatic car or an automatic car?

      • Nobody to moderate this page? In this page, I am interested to read abt automatic cars, not about English! Moderator, please remove all comments related to English, including mine!

    • That is a bitchy thing to say

      • Especially when you use SMS language like ur thru etc. Sort of Pot calling the Kettle black!

    • oops. Bad English.

  2. Looks like you are trying to buy a car in India from US, and that too over email. Email is not established here as a sales medium. And moreover, if they know you are talking from US, how do they know you are serious about buying. My experience in buying cars here has been very good. Call them up, they send a car to your home for a test drive. If you like it, then they come over next day with all the paperwork. What can be better !?

    I suspect they may not be making Esteem A/T any more. If they do, I see no reason why they will not respond, that too Maruti dealers.

    Auto trans isn’t popular here mainly because it gives lower mileage than manual. And it makes the car expensive. Why pay 80-90K extra for automatic? Ours isn’t a rich country like US.

  3. Hi! I am crazy about automatic cars, as they come with more smoother, efficient & hazzle free drives. Infact the most high end model cars are mostly autotranamission, like BMW, LEXUS, TOYOTA, AUDI….etc. Infact, even I fail to understand why good companies in India dont come up with autotransmission versions for cars like Qualis, Innova, Fiesta, Verna, as these cars come with good fuel economy & also will fall under Indian standard budget. And if there are a couple of them they are expensive then the manual cars & with their own technical draw backs. I urge the Indian Government to look into this issue & help its citizen to choose vehical of their comforts(especially for handicapped people). The reason what I beleive, for many companies not to come up with the A/T models is that it affects their bussiness, as there are not many buyers for A/T. Agreed, but they can have an option where it can be built on order(especially for physically challenged people & senior citizens who are capable of driving A/T cars) at extra nominal costs. The A/T cars in India are expensive then the manual cars, inspite of their low fuel efficiency & low performance in comaprision with manual cars.

  9. Dear Silkboard,

    Im recently bought one Maruti Esteem Ax 96 model, the drive gives you pleasure, but when you see the mileage i will say oooops!!! Its giving 6 kms only. Could you pl. advice, what is the company’s mileage and how to increase it.

    Thanks,
    Azeez

  10. Its heard that Maruti is bringing its Limited Edition Wagon R ( A new name some thing FX4 or like that) with a CVT gear box!
    Any one heard about that?
    It will be a boon to Autmatic Car lovers like me.

    I own a Zen Ax 97 Model.
    Petrol its giving 11 in city riding.When coneverted to Gas its giving almost 12-13 km in city & around 14-16 in highways. ( At times i got even 16+ ) All are with A/c.

    I have made a minor change to my carburettor while converted to gas .I think thats the reason for greater mileage.I just disconnected the secondory chamber valve so that only primary chamber will work .

    Murali

  11. Wagon R CVT? Never heard about that? When?

    If Maruti can do an SX4 automatic, that could do well. I hear that City CVT is slowly picking up in Metro cities. Untrustworthy source though (someone in Honda showroom)

  19. I think most Indians prefer manual because they feel that its an unnecessary cost, and also there is a suspicion that the auto transmission will “give problems”. The local mechanics may not be savvy with auto transmissions, so people want something that can be easily fixed by any mechanic if they are stranded on the road.

    For a smaller section of us, however, there is another reason to prefer manual. It is because we really like the feel of driving manuals, the level of control it gives, and the “raw” feeling it gives while driving. There are geeks who even prefer manual steering to power steering (though a very small group).

  86. As to the myth of automatic transmission vehicles in India, let me assure you its a myth.

    Gear boxes do not give any trouble. I have been driving automatic vehicles of different models for 12 years without any such problems.

    India and car manufacturers need to make vehicles accessible to all. There is a huge market so volume sales should be the method rather than rip the pockets of the public.

    I wish some car manufacturer takes the lead and makes automatic freely available to public at the same cost as manual. See the change in perceptions.

  116. Well its not all about mileage/fuel efficiency that matter with an automatic transmission vehicle. Probably its a psychological thing behind it. Most men think automatic is more feminine. Changing the gears gives a sense of power rather than just sitting and controlling the steering on a long drive. What i was about to tell was auto transmission does not suit indian road conditions and traffic unless you are riding on a desserted highway. The bumper to bumper traffic hinders the smooth working of auto transmission thus by reducing the performance of the system. Auto transmission does not mean no gear box. The gears are shifted automatically depending on certain speed levels determined for each gear level. Now in Indian traffic conditions these levels are hardly achieved during a city drive or even on a highway drive limiting us from getting the full advantage of the auto transmission. That is how the mileage goes down the scale. While riding in city limits the gear never shifts above 2nd gear burning more fuel through out the ride. This is my opinion.

    • This doesnt make sense. If you drive with manual transmission, you also drive in same gear – first or second!! Rather, sometimes, you dont get chance to shift it manually but automatic does it for you.
      So, dont go by theory or what marketing people tell you – experience yourself before commenting. I can say it because I used it for 10 years and never see mileage worse than manual transmission.
      On the other hand, it saves lot of expense on engine for not driving in correct gear and clutch plate which goes bad with manual transmission – saving lot of other cost. People dont think of overall cost while considering automatic.

I means to say that now a physically challenged person have the options to convert the manual car as per his comfort of physically challenged parts of body. Why should you compromise on a low millage AT car if u r a P H person? you can get the same millage in a manual transmission after getting some changes as per your requirements .You can buy a manual transmission car and then convert it into a semi – automatic car as per your physical problem . just visit

    • Hi,
      I am planning to sell my automatic Esteem 97 model in approx Rs. 1 Lakh. It all depends on me getting company car – I10 Automatic which I can get in next 1 month or so.
      You can see – after using this car for 4-5 years (I got it second-hand), I will ALWAYS use only automatic. It was always so nice for me. I also put RTO registered LPG Lovato kit and it gives me fantastic average of 10-11. (About Rs. 3 /km). Exteriors may not be good as its used car – but enginewise, its superb and I drive at speed of even 100 on LPG… In these 4-5 years (Now its 12 years old), it has NEVER stopped on road… I would have never sold if I would not be getting company car where I get many advantages.

  137. IT IS PITY THAT MARUTI STOPPED MANUFACTURING AUTOMATIC 800 CARS. THESE CARS VERY HELPFUL FOR PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED PERSON, SPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE ABLE TO DRIVE AND AFFORD THE CAR. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR EVERY HANDICAP PERSON TO AFFORD COSTLY AUTOMATIC CARS. EVEN TATA DID NOT THINK OF BRINGING NANO IN AUTOMATIC VERSION.

  138. my both legs are paralyzed, so I desire a car which can be driven by my only hands; residing in Delhi. please guide me.

  139. hi, have an automatic zen for sale in chennai, 1998 model. anyone interested can call me on 9841401207. Price:1.25 lacs fixed. thanks..deepak

  140. I have an Indica Dicor (2008). In 2009 I had a bike accident and now got almost recovered. But still I have trouble using my right leg for driving the manual transmission car as fast movements alternatively on brake and accelerator may be difficult for me with my right leg. So I have to use right leg on accelerator and left leg on brake. Brake and clutch in many cases are required to be used together. So I need a way to automate the clutch.

    A good option I found by now (and probably I’ll have to adopt if not other option is there) is to install ‘City Clutch’ (http://semiautomaticar.blogspot.com/ – posting the link if anyone is looking for) or something similar to make my car semi-automatic, where only the clutch control is automated.

    If possible I prefer to make it fully automatic (with automatic transmission). I just wanted to know if there is anybody who can get my Indica Dicor to be converted to Automatic Transmission.

    • Contact SHivaprasad he will fit your car with CIty Clutch along with hand Controlls if required his details and office details can be found in Google Search as City Clutch Shivaprasad you will get loads of details of him

  153. I just fitted my new Wagon R Lxi with City Clutch and Hand Controls as am affected by Polio on Both Legs. All you have to worry is brake and accelerator and forget about the clutch as it will be looked after by a small microprocessor unit. its same like driving a AT car all you have to do is change the gear and drive its full fun

  154. I am a handicapped person. I have post polia paralysis in my left lower limb. I want to bye a car. Can someone guide by replying following queries..
    1. Will I be able to drive car with one leg (right)?
    2. Which car should I purchase? I have a budget of 4-5L.

  155. I have automatic Esteem 97 model fitted with Lovato LPG gas kit. I am planning to sell as planning to purchase new I10/I20/Astar automatic.
    You can say that once person has purcahse automatic and he has seen the comfort – he will never go to manual. Auto cars giving less mileage or more maintenance is completely foolish and it is told only by the people who has never driven it or car salesman who are most interested to sell manual (as that will be always ready stock and he can make money fast).
    I am really proud using this car as its 13 years old but works so smmothly on road when my usage is good – nearly 50 kms/day. At this age, most manual cars DIE or gives lots of issues in clutch – people forget that they spend lot of money on clucth plate in manual transmission!!
    Anyway, if somebody is interested in my old car, I can sell it as it is. The body may not look good (Rust and scratches) but very good smooth drive. Maruti is buying back in Rs. 85000. I may look around Rs. 1 Lakh as I know Maruti will resell only above this value.

  158. I had Maruti Esteem AX 1997 model – 1,06,000 km which I just sold before a week to Trident Hyundai in Bangalore (Exchange for my new car I10 Next-gen Automatic) .

    I think they may still have it with them as they have just taken keys but not even transferred on their name.

    If anybody wants, I can share details for Trident Hyundai in Bangalore.

  159. Hi,

    I am looking for a Maruthi Swift automatic ( diesel), II- nd hand car, I am not sure that this model is available or not in Indian market. Pls advice….for any other good options in this segment..

    Thanks in advance…

    Balu, Muscat.

    • Looking for a used Honda City CVT, 2006 model & above in Chennai.

      Pls send me an email if you have one to sell. Thanks!

    • no – this model is not there. Also, dont trust Maruti for automatic vehicles now. I I used Maruti Esteem automatic for about 6 years and I was very happy with it. But now, they dont have models like that – and especially they are not able to keep us with market as they couldnt build good automatic cars.
      After struggling with Maruti, I decied to purchase I10 nextgen 1.2 automatic transmissionlast month – though it is overpriced, car is excellent. I used it now for 1 month – 800 km and I am very happy with my choice. It doesnt have any competitior in this segment right now and so, Hyundai is over-pricing but its really enjoyable to have this car. Try it – take test ride to know.

      • Hey Biren, can you please share how much i10 autmatic cost you. I own a spark and wanted to convert it into automatic transmission but do not know if it is possible and from where to get it done. I am from Bangalore. Thanks

      • The car is about 6.1 Lakhs on-road in Bangalore for I10 Kappa2 (VTVT) for Sportz model. I have used now 2000 km and running great. About mileage, it regularly gives me 12 in city and when I used on highway, I got about 16-17. My brother has I10 Manual and he also gets same mileage. So, there is no diff of mileage between manual and automatic.

    • dis model in AT is not avaliable.

  160. I’ve just stubled upon this site holdenhistory.com, could I just borrow the technical
    articles from the web site or do I need some kind of permission?. I am writing a school project.

      • hii Susant you need not modify any clutch plates like that just install City Clutch and it will do it for you no modification of engines or clutch plates and u can use your left leg for brake and acceleration and clutch will be automatic and as far as car is concerned both Wagon R and I 10 are good cars and you can decide according to your budget and also watch out for your seating comfort too

      • it is done in Bangalore and will cost approx 36000 for the City Clutch
