Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Automatic variants expected to account for 30% of Creta’s sales.

Speaking to Financial Express, a Hyundai spokesperson has divulged that the company is planning to introduce petrol automatic variants of the Hyundai Creta and Hyundai Elite i20 soon.

A petrol automatic variant of the 1.6 MPi petrol engine is expected to be INR 1.5 Lakhs cheaper than the diesel AT.

Currently, an automatic gearbox is only available for the Hyundai Creta 1.6 CRDi SX+, which accounts for 18 percent of the local demand. A petrol automatic variant of the Creta is expected to be INR 1.5 Lakhs cheaper, and could be appealing to customers looking for hassle-free drivability, with limited running requirements. Both, the diesel and petrol automatic variants are expected to account for 30% of Creta’s sales.

As for the Hyundai Elite i20, the inclusion of an automatic variant will help rival the likes of the Maruti Baleno CVT, Honda Jazz CVT and Polo GT TSI.

The Hyundai spokesperson also confirmed that they’ll stick to the regular planetary automatic gearbox, rather than introduce an automated manual transmission like the ones offered by Maruti, Tata and Renault, which the company finds to be a “transient technology”.
