The demand of automatic cars (AMT transmission) is rising in India. In automatic cars there are only two pedals one is brake and other one is accelerator, they do not have the traditional clutch pedal like car with manual transmission have.
Cars with AMT are preferred more as compared to the cars with manual transmission by so many people especially by female drivers.
We all know that a transmission is absolutely vital to the inner workings of any car but which one is better; automatic or manual is the question into the mind of every new car buyer’s mind.
Well this question has not an easy yes or no answer because both transmissions have their own unique advantages and disadvantages one may be better in one situation another one may be in another situation even where one is perfect other one may be useless or less effective.
So many drivers today prefer automatic transmission because it is easy to use there is no shifting gears, working on clutch and new drivers are comfortable to use it where in manual transmission it takes a bit of practice.
In hill areas and for less experienced driver a manual transmission may be difficult due to steep inclinations but automatic transmissions operate your car efficiently in this situation.
Automatic transmissions are very useful in heavy traffic they allow the driver to move through heavy traffic without having to do accelerating, decelerating and pushing clutch more than push a single pedal.
Cars with manual transmission are less expensive in comparison to automatic transmission cars. If you are going to buy a new budget car, there is really no contest between the manual transmission and the automatic transmission. In India an automatic transmission car costs Rs.50000-90000 more, than a manual transmission car of the same model.
Automatic transmission is not only expensive but its maintenance also costly. On the other hand manual transmission cars are cheaper to maintain. Manual transmission cars engines are less complex and have more gears than automatics as a result of it they known to save fuel between 5% and 15% in comparison to automatic.
Automatic transmissions are easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while manual transmission vehicles are less expensive and more involved. Of course, there are exceptions to any rule and the only way to be sure which one is right for you is to go for a test drive.
