Maruti Suzuki offers automatic options in 12 models and also offers 3 different types of transmissions – Auto Gear Shift (AGS), Torque Converter automatic, and Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT).

AGS is currently available in the Alto K-10, S-Presso, WagonR, Celerio, Ignis, Swift, Dzire and Vitara Brezza. Whereas the Torque Converter automatic gearbox is available in Ertiga, Ciaz, and XL6. Maruti offers CVT Technology in Baleno only.

On achieving the sales milestone Kenichi Ayukawa, MD, and CEO of Maruti Suzuki India said, “Maruti Suzuki is committed to bring the best of automotive technology to the Indian market. This major milestone reflects the growing customer acceptance of new technologies that brings comfort and ease of driving.
