Like others I am unfortunately thinking of leaving the scheme later in the year.
After doing the numbers over and over, buying one of the above new , and keeping for 3 years (sell ) or 6 years , i should spend no more (maybe a little less) than what i do with Motability
I have read quite a few so called “expert” reviews about this AMT box
One of the worst ( assume the i10 and picanto are very similar cars and they share the same AMT) Hyundai i10 (2020) “expert” review: diminishing returns
“What about that AMT?
If you value your sanity, do not buy the AMT. Standing for automated manual transmission, we truly thought this type of gearbox was on its way out. This gearbox alone would be sufficient to take the i10 from a four-star car to a one-star car.
It’s laughably slow and jerky to shift, up or down. It’s possible to smooth things out a little by lifting off slightly, but it’s so unpredictable that it’s very difficult to modulate this. You can take manual control if you wish – via the shifter, not paddles – but that doesn’t speed matters up.”
How do people find it in the real world??, reason i ask, i have an auto licence only, and no dealers near me have any autos in stock to try.
I see on the picantio you can only have the AMT with a 1.0 with 66bhp
Where as the I10 you can get 1.0l with 66 bhp or 1.2l with 84bhp
I do mainly town and village driving 70%, and A roads 25%, and motorway 5%
Any input on the above engines would be greatly appreciated.
