Yes it does!
But you won't feel all that confident in speeds over 120 inside a small sub 1 ton hatch.

I second that . Own an i10 Auto . its is not the car to do very high speeds . Upto 90-100 its quite alright . Not over that . It however is a fantastic city car.

Maybe a tyre upsize would help with more stability . Cant comment on that as i am running stock tyres.

Default Re: i10 Automatic Transmission

Hi Guys- digging a really old thread as i thought this was relavant to my query:

I am considering an Automatic for my dad( retired and needs to learn driving).

- Budget : 4Lacs
- I was inclined on Alto K10 AMT, came to about 4.5 lacs, but then we found it really cramped for space.
- Our present car is a Manual Santro and its comfortable in terms of space

We are now looking at the pre-owned options:

Shortlisted on Santro Automatic, i10 Automatic and Honda City CVT
(Honda Brio AT may not be available in my budget)

Now i have read that if the Automatic transmission goes bad, replacement costs lacs. Considering this, i need your opinion on what may be the best option for me in terms of reliability and budget...

Since the car would be used for less than 100kms a month, i was even considering a Santro AT for less than 2 lacs... but would it be reliable. Newest i would get is a 2008 model.

If mileage isn't a concern you can go for i10 Auto . I have one that's 5 yrs and 30K kms old . No transmission issues so far.

You will need to spend heavily on auto transmission only if it gets flooded or if its a DSG from VW group . Other than that the Hyundai autobox is reliable and gives lot of confidence to new drivers . I know cause the car is used by my dad who only drives the small automatic.
