Hydraulic Vs Electronic Automatic Transmission Which is Better?

Not many Indian Car Buyers would deep dive when buying a new car. Most of them would be satisfied with basic numbers and simple explanation. However, there are some car buyers who deep dive before putting their money on the table. The query below is one such example.

1. 105PS @5250rpm vs 123PS @6300rpm which one is better
2. 158Nm @4200rpm vs 153Nm @3800rpm which one is better
3. 4 speed AT (of SX4/Verna) vs 6 speed AT (of Skoda) which one is better?

Actually I am looking for a small/low mid segment car with Electronically Controlled Auto Transmission, with High Safety and Parking Back View/Sensor with0n 10-12 Lacs. Preferably with
Direct Injection & Keyless Entry

Hydraulic Vs Electronic Automatic Transmission Which is Better?

Please go through the link from our site comparing cars from your consideration set. It could be a good starting point.


This will be of limited use to the extent of how these cars are loaded , where Verna has parking assist Vento does not offer the same as OEM fitment. On safety from Verna scores due to its 6 airbags, abs and EBD. Verna has keyless ignition and entry.

None of these car offer Direct Injection, as a matter of fact in our price range no car offers such an engine.

In terms of Transmission with the Tiptronic system the 6 speed Vento Gear box is a better option, but then that’s all
. Verna's Automatic transmission is Hydraulic, whilst Vento's AT seems to be Electronic.

Verna is more stylish, much better endowed internally than the Vento. In Terms of power and torque one will have to really get hold of the PT curves for both these cars, but I don’t see that making major impact on our decision as the  actual performance difference may not be perceptible.
