The car is powered by 1248cc
DDiS diesel engine which has a peak torque of 190Nm @ 2000 rpm and delivers 74bhp
@ 4000rpm. The petrol variant comes with 1197cc K series VVT engine that
delivers 84bhp @ 6000rpm and a torque of 115Nm @ 4000rpm.
Several innovations by Maruti
and Suzuki engineers to improve fuel efficiency include changes in engine
hardware leading to improved thermal efficiency, reduced frictional losses and
changes in engine calibration.
While the compact combustion
chamber and higher compression ratio on gasoline engine helps to improve engine
efficiency, the advanced thermal management system in diesel engine along with
low friction engine oil and modified fuel injection system help diesel engine
in faster warm up and lower frictional losses.
