Automatic cars are designed to bring the driver comfort and ease when driving. SO if you are someone who values comfort, why don’t you take a look at automatic cars?

If we are honest with you, most automatic cars are not cheap in comparison with conventional manual cars. But it doesn’t mean every automatic car are, and there are many cheap offerings on the market at the moment such as the Renault Kwid whose price starts at 4.52 lakhs ex-showroom. Despite the potential disadvantage in pricing, many automakers in India now come out with a wide range of automatic cars. One of the reasons why automatic four wheelers are gaining popularity is because of their undeniable comfort and ease in driving. In the current condition of traffic and endless congestion, the feeling of comfort that one gets inside a car would be of much importance. Therefore, automatic cars attract more attention from potential car owners than ever. One more strong point of automatic cars is that they are very easy to service and repair.

1. Volkswagen Polo

Volkswagen is always famous in the Indian market for its great build and safety, and it is no surprise that a Volkswagen claims a spot in our list of the safest cars in 2018. Volkswagen Polo 2018 has gone through a major makeover inside out. The design of the car is innovated with metalised glaze all over the body, and larger cabin space (which is synonymous with more legroom and more comfort). In terms of performance, accelerating is delayed a little bit but steering is smooth and braking feels sharp. Also, changing gear takes almost no effort and creates no jolt at all. The updated version introduces a range of safety features which include dual airbags in the front, anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution, auto-dimming mirror, and parking sensors, etc. This is also one of the most affordable automatic cars on the market, with ex-showroom price starting from 5.54 lakhs.

2. Renault Kwid

Renault Kwid provides the convenience of an automatic car for such a low price starting from 4.25 lakhs ex-showroom. Actually, Renault Kwid is the offering with the lowest price of Renault in India. However, it is such a good thing that Renault does not trade off a low price tag with quality, and this car gives such a bang for your buck if you decide to purchase it. The design of this car is quite different from other cars of the same segment with the high ground clearance, beefed up wheel arches, and strong sturdy SUV-like build. A lot of people will think you must have paid a fortune to own this car while the truth is quite the opposite. The cabin is insanely large with comfy seats, and no matter how long your legs are, they are very likely to fit in this car. Renault Kwid also boasts a wide variety of features including airbags, touchscreen car computer, navigation, and digital meter cluster. The handling of the car is smooth, but the car does not offer the manual mode, so you would want to be really comfortable and fine with driving an automatic car before having a try with Renault Kwid.  Also, because of the automatic transmission, this variant of Renault Kwid has much better fuel economy than other variants.

3. Honda Amaze

Honda Amaze is a well-priced car that is simply great in many aspects. Starting at 7.51 lakhs ex-showroom, the price Honda Amaze really could not get sweeter. Honda Amaze is actually one of the most popular cars of the Japanese automaker, enabling this brand to double in market share when it was first introduced to the market. That is enough to understand how attractive of a deal Honda Amaze is. The exterior of Honda Amaze is average, not disproportionate like most compact sedans but not so pretty that it makes people take a second glance either. It is really the interior that is the selling point of the Honda Amaze. The number of features that can be fitted inside a compact sedan is quite insane. Honda Amaze is equipped with a touchscreen car computer that has Bluetooth and navigation integrated, as well as a driving wheel that can simultaneously control the music system and connection to your mobile phone. In terms of safety features, you would not have to worry much. The car has two airbags for the front seats, Anti-Lock Braking System, and rear parking sensors. The handling is smooth and comfortable, but the steering is rather heavy. If you opt for the diesel and CVT Honda Amaze variant, you are getting the segment’s best of the bests.

4. Hyundai Verna

Hyundai Verna is another 4-metre sedan to make this list, but it is not “just” another sedan. Verna actually is the most awarded car in 2018 (25 awards! What!?) and it was even named Indian Car of the Year. For a high price that starts at 10.66 lakhs ex-showroom, Hyundai Verna is actually worth the money. Hyundai has mastered the art of automobile design, being able to combine both sporty and stylish in one car, and the automaker did just that to Hyundai Verna. Besides being a beauty, Verna is also one of the most feature-packed and powerful sedans. It offers features that are usually seen in more premium cars like ventilated seats, sunroof, rear sunshade, or hands-free smart boot. The entertainment capability of this car can turn a mere vehicle into a moving exclusive clubhouse. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that you can choose either Android Auto or Apple Carplay is connected to 6 in-car speakers that are installed in all car doors. If you are ever frustrated with the traffic jams, you can simply turn on the music and enjoy yourself.

The car boasts a very spacious cabin and an abundance of amazing features such as reversing camera, Apple CarPlay, LED headlamps, etc. that give the best comfortable experience to users. Safety features are not forgotten or cut out: two airbags for the front seats, Anti-Lock Braking System, rear parking sensors, and ISOFIX child seat mounts are available.  More than that, the handling of the car is great, and you can speed up on the highway without feeling light and nervous and regular bumps on the road do not make Maruti Suzuki Dzire shake from left to right.
