3 Reasons That Are Stopping You from Buying an AGS Car

Auto Gear Shift (AGS), the two-pedal technology pioneered by Maruti Suzuki, was introduced to Indian car buyers in the year 2014 in the Celerio. It is an automatic technology that delivers the convenience of an automatic and the fuel-efficiency of a manual. Since its introduction, AGS has made its way into 6 models in the Maruti Suzuki line-up including Celerio, Dzire, Ignis, S-Presso, Swift, and WagonR.

However, a lot of car buyers who explore automatic transmission cars in India, are still skeptical when it comes to AGS. Here are the 3 major reasons why: -

1. Lack of Clarity about AGS technology

Auto Gear Shift uses an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that is controlled by a Transmission ECU. This actuator automatically performs clutch and gear shift operation to transfer the power from the engine to the drivetrain. From a car buyer’s point of view, it delivers the convenience of automatic at an accessible price point.

2. A Belief That AGS Doesn’t Offer Performance

A lot of people think that AGS technology doesn’t offer the performance that an automatic transmission should. Well, as an automatic technology, AGS has come a long way.

AGS can intelligently assess the driving conditions to provide optimum power and torque whenever needed. It also has a Kick-down function in which the automatic gearbox downshifts to a lower to deliver the acceleration you are looking for while driving on a highway or overtaking.

3. Misconception about Maintenance Costs of AGS

AGS technology has been engineered to let more customers have access to automatic cars in India across different segments. That is why special attention has been paid to not just price the AGS cars competitively but also keep the technology simple and durable so that maintenance costs are low in the long haul.

Optimized for great driving comfort, strong performance and great fuel economy, AGS is an automatic technology that offers you the convenience of clutch-pedal-less driving. There are plenty of reasons why it is trusted by more than 5 lakh car owners in India. Know more about AGS right here!
