Suzuki initially introduced the Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology in Pakistan with the launch of its VXL Cultus in 2017.
At the time, this was something very new in the country, and not everyone was familiar with the concept. Moreover, many individuals were left confused and not being able to understand how the AGS system works.
Before we move on to the expert tips, here is what you need to know and understand about Suzuki’s AGS technology:
What Is AGS?
Although the name of the system is Auto Gear Shift, it is still a manual transmission car. The manual transmission is connected to an electric motor that works as a clutch when it shifts between the gears.
Why Introduce AGS In Pakistan?
One of the main reasons to introduce AGS in its cars was to give drivers better mileage. Compared to a standard or conventional automatic transmission, AGS technology consumes less fuel. Moreover, an actuator motor helps shift gears, whereas the standard automatic transmission has a torque converter that wastes energy in-between gearshifts.
What Features Does AGS Offer?
Drivers get several unique features with this breakthrough technology. Suzuki owners get to make the most of several things, from easy handling to low maintenance costs, and more. We have mentioned how it is fuel-efficient and provides easy maintenance for drivers; it also provides a comfortable drive and saves you a considerable amount of money.

Tip #1- Starting The Engine With Ease
To start the engine, you need to follow the following steps:
- Place the gear lever to N position
- Press the brake pedal and start the engine
- Press the brake pedal to change the gear D, N, R
Tip #2- Focus On The Accelerator
The best way for you to adapt to the ABS is by focusing on the accelerator. Ensure you hit the pedal with light force when the car is still and not press it to the floor with all your might. As soon as the gear shifts, remove your foot from the pedal, slowly.
Tip #3- Roaring
As soon as you hear your engine roar, release your foot from the accelerator as it is the ideal time for gear shifting.
