Best Automatic Car in Rs 10 Lakh: The Indian car market has witnessed a sharp jump in the demand for automatic cars in recent years. Automatic transmission is no longer a feature only available on premium cars and several budget offerings also come with options of an automatic gearbox. Having an automatic car can be a total lifesaver when maneuvering through the heavy traffic on Indian roads. If you have been looking for a new car on a budget of Rs 10 lakh, here is a list of automatic cars to consider before finalizing the deal.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno
The Baleno is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine and is offered in three automatic variants: Delta AMT, Zelta AMT and Alpha AMT. Baleno’s automatic lineup starts at Rs 7.69 lakh and goes up to Rs 9.49 lakh for the top-of-the-line Alpha AMT variant.
Under the price range of Rs 10 lakh, you can also consider Nexon’s XMA AMT and XMA AMT S variants. Both models use the 1.2-litre petrol engine tuned to deliver 118.36 hp and maximum torque of 260 Nm. The compact SUV could be a good option to consider if you’re looking for a mix of power and features. The cars are loaded with features such as cruise control, I-RA voice assistant and automatic headlights among many others.
Tata’s premium hatchback offering Altroz is available in seven variants with automatic transmission. However, the diesel variants of the car do not have the option of an automatic gearbox.
