The revolutionary Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology has changed the landscape of automatic cars in India since its launch in 2014. Enabling clutch and gear-free driving and engineered to offer greater driving comfort, AGS has become the choice of automatic transmission in India for countless drivers across the country, making automatic transmission cars accessible across different segments.
Pioneered by Maruti Suzuki, AGS technology is equipped with an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operations. The system intelligently assesses the dynamic driving conditions and adjusts the automatic gear shifts to deliver optimal driving performance. The result is a synchronized control over the clutch, shifting, and engine for smoother gear changes, and since this is achieved at optimal shift point, you get great fuel efficiency and performance.
What Makes AGS an Ideal Choice
Ease of Driving Automatic: AGS transmission is a two pedal-technology that takes away the hassle of manual gear-shifts and clutch operation since both are electronically automated without any human intervention.
Dual Driving Mode: AGS is a different type of automatic transmission in terms of how versatile it is. It provides the flexibility to switch between automatic and manual driving modes as per your driving preferences; this makes driving really easy and convenient.
Creep Function: The Creep function in Maruti Suzuki AGS cars makes them easy to drive in slow-moving, bumper-to-bumper traffic. Tackling peak-hour traffic was never so easy - all you need to do is to release the brake pedal, and the car will automatically move forward from standstill at slow speeds on its own.
Kick-Down Function: You won’t experience any lag in acceleration with AGS, thanks to the Kick-Down function which automatically lowers the gear to provide better pick-up based on the driver’s inputs.
High Fuel Efficiency: With precise gear shifts and optimized operation, Maruti Suzuki cars with AGS offer enhanced fuel efficiency that is at par with their manual counterparts.
Making automatic cars practical at every step, AGS technology is specifically tuned and optimized as per the Indian road conditions to offer the best driving experience across different driving terrains.
That is why AGS is an ‘automatic choice’!
