  • Skoda Slavia’s 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine is the most powerful and torquiest unit of the lot. It also gets Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) which shuts off two cylinders to ensure optimum fuel efficiency.
  • Speaking of the naturally aspirated petrol engine, the Honda City tops the chart here. In fact, its power figures are more than that of the 1.0-liter turbocharged mills of the Hyundai Verna and Skoda Slavia.
  • In terms of mileage, Maruti undoubtedly leads the segment.
