With urban traffic getting worse by the day, an increasing number of people are switching to small cars with automatic gearboxes. We take a closer look at the options and how they stand out from each other

 

Honda Brio AT

 

 

3. Honda Brio S AT and V AT

 

The Honda Brio is one of the liveliest hatchbacks in India with its free-revving 1.2-litre i-VTEC engine that develops 88PS of power and 109Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed torque converter gearbox that has toned down the performance but adds the convenience of a stress-free drive. Mileage, however, has dropped to 16.5kmpl from the manual’s 19.4kmpl (ARAI tested).

 

Being one of the smallest hatchbacks, the Brio is easy to manoeuvre and park. It features spacious interiors but cost cutting means no rear wash wipe or defogger. 

 

The S AT and V AT variants cost Rs 5.74 lakh and Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) respectively, Rs 75,000 than the S (O) MT and V MT manuals. 

 

The middle-of-the-line S AT packs in an integrated stereo, power steering, front and rear power windows, steering-mounted audio controls, manually adjustable ORVMs, dual tone interiors, ABS, remote central locking and front airbags. 

 

The top-of-the-line V AT gets electrically adjustable ORVMs, alloy wheels, chrome interior door handles, dual horns, seat back pockets and vanity mirrors for both driver and front passenger.
