Default Re: The need for common rail AUTOMATIC hatches

It definitely is an excellent idea to have a Diesel Automatic Hatchback but our Automobile Majors don't seem to see much potential in such an offering. As pointed out the Rs. 1.5-2 Lakh price difference is definitely a deterrent in our price conscious market.

The fact that the VW Vento / Skoda Rapid have been launched with the famed DSG Gearbox gives hope that the same gear box could be sold on the VW Polo / Skoda Fabia which share the same platform. The VW GT TDI with DSG would be an awesome offering.

I was about to buy the Vera CRDI AT but was turned off by a boring 4-speed transmission after a long test drive. The Elantra has the same 1.6L engine with a six speed which was excellent.

I drove a Chevrolet Cruze AT which had an excellent Engine Mated to 6-speed Automatic Transmission and was instantly in love with Diesel Engine / Automitic Transmission combination. Enjoy every day driving it in Town and Weekly on a lovely Four Lane Highway.

TATA is ready to stir this segment. The Bolt hatch is with an AMT. The QJD is for sure to be launched with AMT.
Planned launch in early 2015.

The diesel and the AMT (automatic) will have to wait for a date closer to the launch next year.
Diesel AMT not available on Bolt immediately.
