With the increase in traffic on roads in the metro cities, the automatic transmission is becoming the desired gearbox choice. Despite having a bad reputation of having no driving feel, they are selling in big numbers but not as much as the manuals (Hail Manual Transmission!).

So, to have a tiny bit of fun from behind the wheel and extract every pony out of the engine DCT or Dual Clutch Transmission comes into being. This transmission offers seamless shifts with no compromise in power delivery and fuel efficiency. DCT achieves all this without a little bit of fun.

So, to help you out, here are 10 best vehicles with DCT automatic gearbox.
