* There is no clutch pedal in an automatic transmission car.
* There is no gear shift in an automatic transmission car.
No clutch to be depressed and no gears to be switched. Just put the vehicle in Drive mode and you are all set to go. That is an Automatic Transmission car for you. Add this to the SUV Mahindra Scorpio and you get power, space, luxury, character, off-roading, mighty muscular looks and convenience all combined in one.
Here are some reasons why an SUV like Mahindra Scorpio with Automatic Transmission makes a lot of sense for Indian roads.
* The Torque Convertor: torque converter is the main component in fully automatic transmission that provides many unique benefits such as multiplication of the engine torque and reduced shock and strain on the entire driveline. In Manual Transmission there is loss of momentum, power and speed because the clutch separates the engine from the transmission at every gear shift. IN Automatic transmission however, is more efficient because the engine and transmission are always connected.
* Automatic Transmissions incorporate a lock-up clutch which provides a direct mechanical connection from the engine to the transmission. This maximizes fuel economy. Thus Automatic Transmission cars will always provide better fuel economy than Manual Transmission cars.
* A major concern for any driver is the loss of traction on muddy, slippery or slippery terrain. Automatic Transmission cars can be a solution to this concern as it can help maintain control even in the toughest ground conditions. The engine's power gets continually delivered to the wheels without any interruptions for gear shifts and thus the car can pull away gently. This reliable Performance of an Automatic Transmission car is desirable.
* Lower running costs: The absence of the need for new clutches or flywheel regrinds for starters and the reduction of overall abuse on the rest of the driveline as compared to Manual Transmission helps keep the running costs low in Automatic Transmission cars.
