Auto Gear Shift, Also known as Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) in general, was first introduced in Maruti Suzuki Celerio in 2014. In fact, it was the first car in India to get this automatic transmission.
Offering the convenience of an automatic and the fuel efficiency of a manual transmission, AGS by Maruti Suzuki has made automatic cars accessible for car buyers in different segments. Moreover, it makes driving easy and offers great performance as well.
If you are in the market for bringing home a car with AMT transmission, here are 4 features of AGS that will help you decide better:
1. Flexibility to Switch between Automatic and Manual modes
A key feature of this automatic transmission by Maruti Suzuki is the Dual Driving mode. With this, you can easily switch between the manual and automatic modes as per your preference. So, when you are stuck in traffic, switch to the automatic mode to enjoy hassle-free driving. On the other hand, you can switch to the manual mode when you want to have more control over the gear shifts.
2. Ease of Driving in Traffic
The Creep function in AGS makes it a convenient automatic transmission for city driving. All you have to do is release the brake – the car starts moving at low speeds without pressing the accelerator. This makes AGS a boon to have in stop-go traffic during peak hours.
3. A Surge of Power When You Need It
When you need to accelerate, simply press the accelerator. The kick-down function comes into play; it lowers the gear to deliver more power and torque for picking up speed.
4. Good Performance and Fuel-Efficiency
AGS has an intelligent injection system that seamlessly communicates with Dual Interdependent ECUs. This system intelligently assesses the driving conditions and also helps maintain an optimum air-fuel ratio. All of this translates to consistent performance and fuel efficiency that is at par with manual transmission.
Drive easy and convenient with AGS.
