ZW-Ford-EcoSport-EcoBoost-BS6

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza comes with a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine developing 105PS of power and 138Nm of torque. These figures, though not bottom-rung, aren't class-leading in any sort either. In fact, the Brezza’s numbers are slightly better than the Hyundai Venue’s naturally aspirated unit, the least powerful car in this comparison. The EcoSport’s 3-cylinder Dragon engine develops class-leading power while the Mahindra’s turbo-petrol unit develops class-leading torque. The Tata Nexon and Hyundai Venue’s turbo-petrol unit develop similar power figures and don't disappoint. 

ZW-Hyundai-Venue

Almost all the models in this test come with a manual transmission. However, all of them utilise different automatic units. The Brezza is offered with an old-school 4-speed torque converter while the Nexon utilises a simple 6-speed AMT. Meanwhile, the Ford EcoSport and Venue Turbo come with more sophisticated 6-speed torque converter and 7-speed DCT units respectively. You don’t have any automatic options for the Venue NA petrol and Mahindra XUV300.  

ZW-Tata-Nexon-BS6

In terms of fuel efficiency, the Vitara Brezza returns 17.03kmpl, 18.76kmpl respectively for the manual and automatic variants. In comparison, the Ford EcoSport manual and automatic variants have a 15.9kmpl and 14.7kmpl figure respectively. Mahindra, Hyundai and Tata haven’t revealed official fuel efficiency figures for their models.
