    Q.

    How is the engine? Is it under-powered?

    We got our hands on the 1.3-litre turbo-petrol which makes 140PS of power and 220Nm of torque. It only comes mated to a 6-speed torque converter automatic. The other engine option available is 1.5-litre petrol which makes 110PS of power and 144Nm of torque. It can be had with a 5-speed MT and an optional 8-speed CVT automatic. The Astor’s power delivery is smooth. This, right from the pickup, gives you a nice and linear acceleration. Start going on the throttle and the Astor builds speed in a strong manner. And because this is a torque converter automatic, the turbo lag is taken care of and you don't struggle for power while cruising in the city. Start going heavier on the throttle and the same linear acceleration greets you. It’s not very exciting but there is ample pull for overtakes. And even beyond, the Astor keeps on going. At BIC, we recorded a 0-100kmph time of 10.76 seconds, which is impressive. And the Astor kept pulling ahead as well, with a recorded top speed of 164.33kmph. So be it city commuting or highway touring, the Astor, at least in its turbo guise, will manage it without breaking a sweat. Even the transmission, though a bit slow to shift on a racetrack, should feel fine in the city. Here, drive modes could have helped the Astor have a better dual personality. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive.

    Both the cars are good in their own forte. Seltos with a striking interior and exterior design, host of feel-good features and multiple powertrain options, Kia seems to have cut no corners in equipping its first offering for India.

    Both the cars are from different segment. Hyundai i20 is a hatchback whereas MG Astor is a SUV. The Astor manages to stand out in the segment with its looks, tech and upmarket cabin experience. And the rest of the elements like drive and comfort look promising as well.
