      • Engine & Transmission

        • Engine

          1498 cc, 4 Cylinders Inline, 2 Valves/Cylinder, SOHC

          Timely services will keep a motor efficient and in top shape.

        • Engine Type

          1.5L DV5 (Diesel)

          The official title given by the manufacturer in terms of the name of the engine, the displacement and the number of cylinders.

          A bigger displacement and more than four-cylinders generally indicate a performance-oriented engine.

        • Fuel Type


          All cars in India either run on petrol, diesel, CNG, LPG or electric power.

        • Max Power (bhp@rpm)

          99 bhp @ 3750 rpm

          Gives a good idea of the performance of the vehicle under full thrust. A higher figure here usually means a higher top speed as well.

          Higher the power, the peppier the engine but it can also affect fuel economy.

        • Max Torque (Nm@rpm)

          205 Nm @ 1750 rpm

          Relates to in-gear acceleration. A higher figure here means better roll-on acceleration, fewer gear shifts, and possibly better fuel efficiency.

          The more torque at low RPM range makes the engine feel more responsive. It also allows the engine to run smoothly without too many gear changes.

        • Mileage (ARAI)

          22.7 kmpl

          This is the maximum fuel efficiency that an engine gives. All numbers are provided by the manufacturer based on tests conducted and specified by the standards of the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India)

          Such fuel efficiency attained while driving in special conditions makes it unlikely to get it in real-world conditions

        • Drivetrain


          Cars come with different drivetrain configurations depending on the segment.

          Front-wheel drive (FWD) is most common in mainstream cars while expensive cars or SUVs come with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

        • Transmission

          Manual - 5 Gears

          Type of transmission used to transfer power from the engine to the wheels

          A manually operated transmission is the most popular type, thanks to its simplicity and low cost. Varied types of automatic transmissions are also available.

        • Turbocharger / Supercharger


          Manufacturers today offer turbochargers to boost engine power without affecting its fuel economy. Superchargers are found in more expensive cars but on the downside, they are not very efficient.

          Turbochargers are more effective but require plenty of heat management. Superchargers, meanwhile, offer linear bump in power but they are comparatively more complex.

      • Dimensions & Weight

        • Length

          3999 mm

          The length of the car decides its segment. In India, cars that are less than 4 metres in length enjoy reduced excise duties.

      Specifications & Features

      Engine & Transmission: The engine of a car is a crucial component that determines its performance and efficiency. The specifications of the engine, such as displacement, number of cylinders, and power output, play a significant role in defining the car's capabilities. For example, a 1498 cc, 4 Cylinders Inline, 2 Valves/Cylinder, SOHC engine is designed to deliver a balance of power and fuel efficiency.

      Drivetrain: The drivetrain configuration, such as Front-wheel drive (FWD) and transmission type, impacts the car's handling and performance. Front-wheel drive is common in mainstream cars, while the type of transmission, whether manual or automatic, affects the driving experience .

      Dimensions & Weight: The dimensions and weight of a car, including length, width, height, wheelbase, ground clearance, and kerb weight, influence its maneuverability, stability, and interior space. For example, a longer wheelbase generally results in more cabin space.

      Capacity: The seating capacity, number of doors, and boot space define the practicality and category of the car. These factors determine the car's suitability for different passenger and cargo requirements.

      Suspensions, Brakes, Steering & Tyres: The type of suspension, brakes, steering, and tires impact the car's ride quality, handling, and safety. Features such as disc brakes, power-assisted steering, and tire specifications contribute to the overall driving experience.

      Features: Safety features, including child seat anchor points, seat belt warning, and braking & traction systems, are essential for occupant protection and accident prevention. Comfort and convenience features, such as air conditioning, parking assist, and entertainment systems, enhance the overall driving experience.

      This comprehensive understanding of automotive specifications and features allows me to provide valuable insights and guidance on car selection and performance evaluation.

      I hope this information provides a clear overview of the concepts related to car specifications and features. If you have any specific questions or need further details on any aspect, feel free to ask!
