Few points:
Diesel AMT is impressive
Performance is close to conventional auto box
As per reviewer this is the best AMT they have driven
Agreed one cannot just take their word for it, but it should prompt people to take a test drive at the very least.

I'm on the exact same situation as you. TD Zest, Dzire, Swift and other Ameo Diesel AT. Ameo scored the best in driving department, but Dzire came out the clear winner when all the factors were considered. So finally booked the latest Dzire ZDI AMT.

Considered upcoming Amaze Diesel CVT as well, but decided not to pre-book since it is the first-gen diesel CVT on Amaze. Dzire on the other hand has been here for some time already, and the niggles are already out in the open. Like some say, a known devil is better than an unknown angel.

Didn't miss it sir. The reviews say that it suffers from the traditional lag or unrefined nature that inherently plagues all AMT boxes, however this unit is the the best they have driven yet. I am rather convinced to buy the Nexon ( in favour of the Baleno) and eagerly waiting to check out the car once they are available for TDs.

Not sure if this was reported before, but apparently bookings have "officially" begun. Booking amount is Rs. 11,000/-

Sir, I have been using the Dzire AGS since July 2016, having done 28K kms till date. Most of my drives have been within Kolkata city. Add to that a couple of 300+ kms in and around Kolkata. The longest I have done is Kolkata - Delhi - Kolkata.

I have ample experience in driving slush boxes and CVT abroad.

I have never found 'the AMT to be annoying to drive as a daily drive as compared to the conventional ATs". As a matter of fact, I feel it to be really comfortable as compared to a MT. Also I would like to iterate the fact that in city drives, my stress levels are really low as my left hand and leg are free of doing labour.

Yes, AMT does require a bit of tweaking of driving habits, but once that is mastered, its a breeze.

Yesterday I visited a Tata showroom in Mumbai to test drive the Tigor AMT. The advisor there told me that Nexon AMT will come in z and z+ variants. Also he said this week they expect the test drive car to arrive in their showroom.

I don't think the XZA variant will be launched for now. The website has been updated with the XZA+ variant (https://nexon.tatamotors.com/variants). The Sales Advisor told me that they are themselves waiting for further information and looks like it will be launched in the last week of April or 1st Week of May. Fingers crossed. Let's see. I hope the long wait is finally worth it!

Something from my birdies, Nexon will come come XZA+ and XZA , though no confirmed launched dates for XZA. With the launch of these Tata will be judging the demand for AMT's and which can lead to launch of XTA or XMA too.

Hi all. I have a quick question. I am one among those who waited madly for Nexon AMT and ended up buying Nexon MT. My question is, in AMT (in general), when brake is applied at any speed, including high speeds, does it give the same effect of applying clutch + brake effect of MT? This may be a generic question related to AMT gear box but I am posting as I own a Nexon MT and may get Nexon AMT for one of our family members in couple of months. I am quite used to how the Nexon brake is, by now. Just wondering of the effect of braking in AMT especially when we want to apply brake at high speeds where we want to take to stand still (in any such occasion).

Speaking from my experience with the Nano AMT. Such situations are handled pretty well. In my six months usage, the car has never stalled, even on hard braking. Sure, it does appear confused at times, pauses to think occasionally but never stalls.

Since you've prior experience with AMTs could you clarify whether is it possible to push start a AMT equipped car ? Touchwood let no one face such a situation but i tend to overthink most of the times and hence the question.

P.S I'm considering Nexon (D) AMT replacing one of the fords @ home and hence this interest in AMT.

If I may answer ( I own a NANO AMT):

To start an AMT equipped car, we need to be in neutral with the brake peddle pressed. So, to answer your question, I don't think bit can be push started.

Anyway, why would you want to do that? A better option is to jump start the car. Earlier cars with carburettor could be push started. However, with the advant of MPFI and CRDI engines, it is recommended to jump start a car instead of push start.

Tata has brought out the automated manual transmission (AMT) versions of its Nexon at Rs 9.41 lakh for the petrol and Rs 10.3 lakh for the diesel (ex-showroom, Delhi). Launched in a single top-spec XZA+ trim, the Nexon will be the first in the compact SUV segment to feature a diesel-automatic combination.

At this pricing, the Nexon AMT petrol undercuts the top-spec EcoSport Titanium+ AT (Rs 11.37 lakh) by a very significant Rs 1.96 lakh.
