Do this model have a automatic gear system?

Hello MOURYA !!
Toyota Etios Cross is available in only manual transmission version. Automatic transmission is not on offer. Some of the key comfort features available are electric power steering with tilt function, central locking, adjustable front and rear headrest,2 DIN audio system. These are availale in both G and V variants. Audio controls on steering, chrome ascented shift knob are available in V/VD variants only.
The new Toyota Etios cross is having a great engine installed under the hood, which should have been complimented with an automatic transmission option which is unfortunately not available in the Toyota Etios cross. A vehicle in the range of 6 plus lakhs should have the automatic transmission option. Cross Etios has manual transmission only which in my view is a drawback for such a good car. Toyota should get a AT variant soon in to cross range of Toyota.
The new Toyota Etios cross comes in three engine options 1.2L petrol, 1.4L diesel and 1.5L petrol engine. The most expensive version of Etios cross is cross VD which costs around 7.72 lakhs ex-showroom. So a car with this much price and nothing extraordinary features in to must be complimented with automatic transmission option, which is a lacking part of it. But I am confident in near future Toyota will come in Automatic transmission option for sure in near future.
Toyota Etios cross is not having a automatic transmission option which must be there in the price it is charging. It looks like the Automatic transmission has been remained a feature to be installed in sedans and above but we should see a car company like Maruti Suzuki is also offering a automatic transmission in its budget car celerio then why Toyota is showing misery on Etios.
You guys are right, I am a celerio owner and I was thinking to buy one Etios as an upgrade to existing car actually I have been impressed with the muscular interior it has but I have dropped my plan just for a single reason as a car of 8.5 Lakhs rupees is not having Automatic transmission option in to it, then what will be the value for money. I love driving celerio and I will stick to it.
