Best Manual Transmission Cars in India – Price, Mileage, Specifications, Images, Colours

Until recently, India was primarily a manual transmission-dominated car market, with most buyers of mainstream cars opting for manual gear shifting instead of automatic technology. Now, however, things have started to change. Thanks to advancements in technology that have led to a drop in prices of automatic transmission cars and also the ever-increasing traffic congestion, many car buyers have now started opting for automatic transmission cars. Still, however, we have some cars that come with brilliant manual transmissions that offer complete control over the engine along with a very sporty driving experience. Here, in this post, we’ve provided details of the best manual transmission cars in India from the popular segments-

Maruti Suzuki S-Presso

Maruti Suzuki S-Presso

The Maruti S-Presso is the latest small car in MSIL’s comprehensive hatchback lineup. It’s based on the HEARTECT-K platform and is available in both manual and automated manual transmissions options. The former offers well-matched gear ratios along with a slick-shifting gearbox. Even the latter, which offers auto shifts, is technically a manual transmission with an actuator that shifts the gear based on throttle inputs. Regardless of which transmission you choose, you can’t go wrong with this little car.

Maruti Suzuki WagonR

The next car on our list of best manual transmission cars in India is another small car from the house of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. In its third generation now, the WagonR is now being sold with 1.0 and 1.2 petrol engine options. Both the motors are available with manual and automated manual transmissions. The former offers well-timed and smooth gearshifts, while the latter, as explained in the case of the S-Presso, is a manual unit that offers automated gearshifts through an actuator. In both cases, the car offers well-thought-of gear ratios that lead to a peppy performance across the rev range. Underpinned by the HEARTECT platform, the WagonR is a highly practical tallboy hatchback.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

The next car we want to tell you about needs no introduction.

Like its tallboy sibling, the Swift has a well-tuned transmission that provides well-timed gear ratios. The AMT is a fairly responsive unit, while the manual transmission offers light clutch action.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Maruti Suzuki Baleno

The next model on our list of best manual transmission cars in India is the Baleno, a premium hatchback that is being sold with the same 1.2-litre petrol unit that is on offer on the Swift. However, the Baleno also gets a more potent VVT-equipped version that offers a higher power output. Both the engine options are available with a smooth-shifting manual transmission along with a light clutch. It also offers an optional CVT, but the manual transmission is so well-tuned and the gear ratios so well spaced out that you can easily cruise in second gear in dense traffic without needing to frequently shift up or down. Also, the Baleno offers a fantastic ride quality, spacious cabin, and modern looks.

Honda Amaze – June 2021 Discounts

While the Maruti Dzire rules the roost in the C1-segment, it’s actually the Honda Amaze that makes it to our list because of its smoother shifting manual transmission. Also, unlike the Dzire, which is a petrol-only model, the Amaze is available in both petrol and diesel variants. Both these motors can even be purchased with a CVT, but the manual unit does the job pretty well of keeping the requirement of frequent gear shifts to the minimum and enabling the driver to have a relaxed driving experience. It also offers smooth gear shifting and, overall, a premium experience with its well thought of cabin that has been put together using upmarket materials.
