Choose comfort, choose a Maruti Suzuki Automatic
No matter what kind of Maruti Suzuki automatic transmission you pick, you get to experience enhanced driving comfort by not having to depress a clutch pedal or shift gears by hand.
- Auto Gear Shift (AGS)
AGS utilizes an intelligent shift control actuator operated by a transmission electric controller unit for synchronizing clutch and gear shift actions, which results in smooth gear changes. Taking manual control of the gearbox is also possible without needing to operate a clutch. Cars with AGS transmission deliver same fuel efficiency figures as their manual counterparts. Models like the Alto K10, Celerio, WagonR, Ignis, Swift, Dzire Vitara Brezza and S-PRESSO are available with AGS transmission.
- Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
Instead of a conventional gear system, a CVT transmission uses two pulleys of variable diameter that are connected by a belt or chain. The transmission electronic controller unit operates this hydraulic system to achieve the desired speed ratio as per the accelerator input. The engine stays in the highest possible efficiency band and the flow of power from the engine to the wheels is continuous and uninterrupted resulting in smooth driving experience and linear acceleration. Available in the Baleno, CVT ensures enhanced fuel efficiency and driving pleasure.
- Automatic Transmission (AT)
An automatic transmission unit is a completely automated gearbox that self-changes the vehicle gear ratios, freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually.
Here, the torque converter unit, which is controlled by the Electronic Control Unit, automatically changes gears based on the car's speed and load. The four-speed AT is offered with the Ertiga, Ciaz, and the newly launched XL6 in the Maruti Suzuki portfolio.
No matter what type of car you're looking for, you are sure to find it with the convenience of automatic transmission in Maruti Suzuki's expansive line-up of cars.
