          Engine & Transmission
          Engine Type
          Engine type in car refers to the type of engine that powers the vehicle. There are many different types of car engines, but the most common are petrol (gasoline) and diesel engines
          Displacement (cc)
          The displacement of an engine is the total volume of all of the cylinders in the engine. Measured in cubic centimetres (cc)
          No. of Cylinders
          ICE engines have one or more cylinders. More cylinders typically mean more smoothness and more power, but it also means more moving parts and less fuel efficiency.
          Max Power (bhp@rpm)
          Power dictates the performance of an engine. It's measured in horsepower (bhp) or metric horsepower (PS). More is better.
          Max Torque (nm@rpm)
          The load-carrying ability of an engine, measured in Newton-metres (Nm) or pound-foot (lb-ft). More is better.
          Valves Per Cylinder
          Valves let air and fuel into the cylinders of a combustion engine. More valves typically make more power and are more efficient.
          Fuel Supply System
          Responsible for delivering fuel from the fuel tank into your internal combustion engine (ICE). More sophisticated systems give you better mileage.
          Direct Injection
          Turbo Charger
          A device that forces more air into an internal combustion engine. More air can burn more fuel and make more power. Turbochargers utilise exhaust gas energy to make more power.
