Top 5 Cars In India With Automatic Transmission

When you are looking to buy a new car, there would be many decisions to make. This includes the body style, engine type, colour, and transmission of the vehicle. It is important that you spend some time on researching the different options in the market, particularly the transmission type.

If you are confused about the type of transmission you would like to have in your car, you should look at your personal preferences and driving habits in general. This will surely help you make the right decision.

Difference Between Manual And Automatic Transmission:

The main difference between a manual transmission and an automatic transmission is the way in which the car shifts gears. When a vehicle has automatic transmission, the driver does not have control of when the gear should be shifted. The car automatically shifts the gears for the driver. In a vehicle with manual transmission, the driver is responsible for shifting gears through the clutch and gear stick.

The shifting of gears, irrespective of whether it is done by the car or the driver, is an important part of the driving process. As the driver increases the speed of the vehicle, the RPM of the engine also goes up. The tachometer on the dashboard shows the RPM of the engine. In order to protect the vehicle’s engine and align it with the speed, the gear has to be changed. In a manual transmission vehicle, the driver will change the gear. In an automatic transmission vehicle, the car does the changing of gears.

Advantages Of Vehicles With Automatic Transmission:

A vehicle with automatic transmission will offer you the simplest driving experience. Some of the key benefits of such a vehicle are as follows:

  • It helps the driver to stay focussed on the roads.
  • If you stay in an area with heavy traffic, it is better to go for an automatic transmission vehicle. Driving in stop-and-go traffic with a manual transmission car can be very exhausting. It is also easier to operate automatic transmission vehicles if you reside in hilly areas.
  • The latest models of automatic transmission vehicles are helpful when you need to accelerate fast.

Advantages Of Vehicles With Manual Transmission:

Cars with stick shifts also have die-hard fans. Some of the advantages of buying such a vehicle are elaborated below:

  • Cars with manual transmission offer better mileage.
  • Manual transmission cars gives you better control over the vehicle.
  • The repair expenses in a manual transmission car are usually very low.
  • Manual transmission cars are, more often than not, cheaper than automatic transmission vehicles.
  • It is essential for a driver to be able to drive a manual transmission car, as it can be quite handy during an emergency.

    I had chosen New India Assurance for my car insurance because I know a employee so I get some waiver off on the premium. I had claims on my previous car and the experience was not good. They need to improve on the benefits because I need to pay first for the cliam process then they send a cheque after 1 or 1.5 months that too after analyzing. I get 80% and sometimes 85% of the claim.

  • Royal Sundaram Car Insurance
    "Should be transparent"
    0.5 1.0/5 "Really Bad"
    I met with an accident, I had to get it claim because I have Royal Sundaram car policy it was bumper to bumper at the time of enrollment they said its fully covered. But when I went for the claim, the insurer said car engine was not covered. Then I fought with Royal sundaram Insurance company. They quoted 1.40 lakh claim value and they made me to pay Rs. 70,000 from my end. However the additional cost of engine protection is just around Rs. 400 but I paid the premium of Rs. 20,000. I am very disappointed with them because they are not transparent. So I suggest to all, before going policy make sure whether its fully covered.
