With rising road congestion in most cities in the country, more and more people are going for automatic cars in India. And why not, they offer you the convenience of driving in heavy traffic as you need not take care of clutch and gearbox combination. If you too are planning to buy an automatic car, have a look at our list of 10 cheapest automatic cars in India –
1. Tata Nano AMT
No prizes for guessing, the AMT model of the Tata Nano is the most affordable automatic car in India. The Tata Nano has two automatic variants in its lineup – XMA and XTA priced at Rs 2.80 lakh and Rs 3.0 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively. While the automatic variant of the Nano features the same 624cc, two-cylinder, MPFI petrol mill that does duty in the manual version too, it gets a 5-speed AMT unit. This is the same unit that the company uses for the Zest diesel AMT version. This engine is good for 38bhp and 51Nm. Also Read: Best Cars in India Below Rs 5 lakh

Similar to the manual version of the car, the Maruti Alto K10 automatic too features the 1.0-litre K-Series petrol engine that churns out 67bhp and 90NM. The same engine and gearbox combination is used for the Celerio and WagonR too. As we reported earlier, the Maruti Alto K10 is due for a facelift this year. The cosmetically-updated model of the hatchback will be rolled out towards the end of this year – most probably during festive season.
Maruti surely enjoys the largest share in the automatic segments as well thanks to the Magneti Marelli-sourced AMT unit that the company now develops in-house with its partner. The company offers two automatic variants of the Wagon R – VXI AGS and VXI Option AGS at Rs 4.8 lakh and Rs 5.1 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively. This makes it among the cheapest automatic cars in India. This one too is powered by the same 1.0-litre K-series petrol mill with AMT that you get with the automatic variants of the Alto K10 and Celerio.
