Upcoming AMT Cars in India 2016-17

Tata Tigor AMT aka Tata Kite 5 AMT 

Tata will soon launch the sedan derivative of the Tiago hatchback in India. It is still unclear whether the compact sedan will come with an AMT right from the time of launch or if it will be added to the lineup later. A diesel engine mated with an AMT could make the Kite 5 the cheapest and the most frugal diesel automatic sedans on sale and give it an edge over the competition.
