Q. Hector Plus petrol automatic or manual, which is best in mileage and performance?

If you'll be driving more in heavy city traffic then we suggest you to opt for Automatic Transmission which are easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while Manual Transmission vehicles are less expensive more involved & are more fun to drive on highways. Moreover, every one of us knows that traffic is becoming an ever increasing pain. It does not matter how quick your manual gearbox responds or how reliable it is when you get stuck in a huge traffic jam and suffer excruciating pain in your left leg constantly depressing the clutch. The claimed ARAI mileage of Hector Plus Petrol Manual is 14.02kmpl, whereas, in automatic, the claimed ARAI mileage of Hector Plus Petrol is 11.67kmpl.
