IMO i10 is the best hatch with AT for an affordable price in market today.

Yesterday I saw a Wagon R AX and a brand new Santo Automatic. These 2 models are surely available.

As the decision seems unianimous for i10 AT Kappa, even i would like to suggest the same.

I have a manual i10 Kappa and very happy with it's performance. Like said, do check the FE aspect of this car which is pretty low. I think it will be in 8-10kmpl range.

today went to trident. took a TD. the drive was good. the interiors feels nice. the beige is good. quite comfortable to drive in the city. the AT is ok.. i had drive anhc AT and it comes nowwhere near it. if one is used to the manual then this AT feels a little different.. did not feel it like that when i drove the anhc.
there is not much power drop with AC on. the FE they quote is 12 .. so i guess 10 must be gettable.. that is the only drawback.
i was inclined i10 sportz AT... he gave a good deal insurance free, 5K corporate discount + mat kit, teflon, sun film, remote key lock free..
on road 5.28L. felt a little high.. but no choice either.
guys, do i need to ask for further discount

i also had a deal on my zen with a fellow bhpian :-)

i am thinking of going for a premium hatch. currently i own ANHC M/T. Considering the cars available, i am left out with only i20. But i am more attracted towards jazz. Does anyone know when is the Automatic of version of Jazz is going to be launched?

i10 AT with 4 speed transmission is a better choice than i20. i20 is still new and has not yet established itself in the market.

i10 is a good choice. Decent car with good build quality and nice interiors.

In premium hatches, i20 is the only choice if you want an automatic. And i think its a pretty good choice.

Go for the i10 AT. I have driven one and the power delivery is seamless. Must better than the 3 speed boxes of MUL. The car is a real gem and revels in city traffic.

Having owned both the Maruti (Zen-carb) and Hyundai (santro) ATs the former is no match for the latter. One must however add that both are rudimentary systems with no sophistication like Torque Converter lock-up etc.

Premium, very goodlooking car and I am sure as reliable as always Hyundai vehicles are.

yes, no doubt about the looks of the car. I personally feel the rear seat comfort is less when compared with Jazz. I think its mainly because of the split seats. Hyundai could have designed it better like the one that comes in i10.

If you can wait for about 8 months you may be able to get a 1.5 Jazz AT!
