I wouldn't agree. Of all the torque-converter ATs I've driven in India:

- Each has been smoother than an AMT. Personally, I can't live with the jerky nature of the AMT. It's a deal breaker for me.

- Each has been quicker shifting than an AMT, even the worst of them.

1. For starters, a sliding second row.

2. A slightly raised third row ( Is it so difficult?)
3. A larger set of tyres.
A raised 3rd row will kill headroom.

Agreed on the tyres. The Duster's 215/65 R16 size is perfect for the Lodgy.

Our Duster AMT review should be out in a couple of days.

Test-drive the XUV500 AT. As Rajeevraj posted, it's very competent.

Thanks, Rajeevraj. I did test drive the XUV AT, and it indeed is extremely smooth. Loved it and heart says XUV. But the XUV W8 AT it touching 20 lakhs OTR in Bangalore, and that would be a significant stretch for my budget.

Thanks GTO. I did not know the jerkiness in AMTs was this bad. Maybe I need to test drive a few AMTs to really appreciate the smoothness of AT. Maruti's 4 speed AT felt a bit lethargic though, thus the continued quest to find something better.

Now that the Duster CVT is out, any chance for the Lodgy CVT (other than the speculated AMT)?
