could you tell me the FE of your car and some differences that you find in the Zen AT against the MT Zens?
FE i get around 12 in the city without AC. With AC I get somewhere between 9-10 kpl. The AT is obviously slower than the MT btu still it fun to drive. Without the AC on its pretty quick and trust me its a boon to drive a smal peepy AT car like the Zen in Mumbai traffic. You can just sweep through traffic with out having the hassles of changing gears. I know manuals are more fun to drive but ATs are practical

Yeah they used to make a few of those long time back in the late 80s. They came with a 2 speed auto box

Dippy, well written and the car looks very nice (especially in the rear shot).
I wouldnt want to drive a AT car myself, but having driven a few I know they can be a boon in traffic conditions like our cities.
