The Amaze’s 1.2L i-VTEC engine is rated at 87 BHP (@ 6,000 rpm) and 109 Nm of torque (@ 4,500 rpm). The powerplant starts with the now familiar sounding note. Within the first few meters itself, I could feel the extra support from the torque converter. Low end response is stronger than in the Amaze MT, the engine now pulling with a certain amount of eagerness. With light accelerator inputs, upshifts are pretty early @ 2,000 rpm. Prod the accelerator some more and you’ll see the gearbox moving up at 3,000 rpm. Along with light controls, good visibility and a short turning radius, the Amaze AT is absolutely effortless to drive in dense city traffic. The gearshifts are acceptably smooth, though you still know when the gearbox is moving up or down. Crawling in traffic, even without any accelerator input, the Amaze AT moves with a lot more pace than is normal. In a gridlock, you’ll need to generously apply the brakes to keep crawling speeds in check.

The ratios are smartly chosen for this 1.2L engine. The initial 3 gears are quite short, while the 4th & 5th are tall. Out on the open road with a heavy right foot, the gearbox responds well. Shift times are good and the Amaze holds gears to the redline. The AT is quick to respond to any inputs from the accelerator pedal. Acceleration is satisfactory, though of course, the Amaze AT is nowhere as quick as its MT sibling. One area of disappointment is the NVH at high rpms; the engine & drivetrain sound more stressed and unrefined, compared to the Amaze MT.

It’s only when you start driving with medium accelerator inputs that you start discovering the gearbox’ shortcomings. With the accelerator pressed halfway, the otherwise well-sorted transmission ends up feeling puzzled. You’ll frequently find it revving the engine by holding onto a gear unnecessarily, or upshifting when the same isn’t required. I had to make the Amaze AT upshift at times by releasing the accelerator pedal and, conversely, pressing it a little harder to drop a gear.
