The new CVT automatic transmission is expected to be offered only on the top variants of the GO and GO+ models. The top variant of both the model are currently priced at Rs 5.17 lakh, and Rs 5.94 lakh respectively (ex-showroom, Delhi). We expect the CVT variants to have price increase of Rs 60,000 over the current top-spec pricing.
