If you are setting out to buy a desirable automatic car with a tight budget, we recommend the 10 following attractive automatic cars with the most affordable price lists.

Over the years, automatic cars are growing in popularity in the Indian market. While the city traffic is causing some irritations to drivers day by day, the needs of more convenient and stress-free drives are in demand, to say the least. Various carmakers have acknowledged that and hence the number of automatic cars for sale in India is growing in quality and quantity or so. Sadly though, it is quite a challenge for the price-conscious buyers in India as cars with automatic transmission cars hardly ever come cheap, not only on the price stickers but also at the running costs. Fortunately, thanks to the enhancement in technology, the automakers have been finding multiple ways to keep the costs of automatic cars in India under check. Indianauto.com has now rounded up with the list of 10 cheapest automatic cars to buy in India, especially best AMT-equipped vehicles that you can buy without having to dig a hole in your pocket.

10. Hyundai Grand i10 Nios

Price: Rs 6.44 Lakh (for 1.2 Magna AT)

Given the rising hustle and bustle of the congested roads around the cities in India, small automatic cars turn out to have a definite competitive edge over the manual ones. Hyundai Motor is among the first automakers to sight this opportunity. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios has registered exponential sales numbers in the Indian space. Even after the covid-19 lockdown, the Grand i10 Nios still enjoys great demand from the auto enthusiasts.

The Grand i10 Nios is powered by three engine options, including a 1.2-litre Kappa petrol, a 1.2-litre U2 CRDi diesel and a 1.0-litre Turbo GDi petrol unit. While the two earlier engines are available with a 5-speed MT in addition to a Smart Auto AMT, the turbo-petrol mill can be had with just a 5-speed manual gearbox. Do note that Hyundai also offers the Grand i10 Nios with bi-fuel type with a 1.2-litre Bi-fuel Petrol+ CNG version.
