|Engine and Transmission|
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
TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol
The displacement of an engine is the total volume of all of the cylinders in the engine. Measured in cubic centimetres (cc)
|No Of Cylinder|
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.
Fast charging typically refers to direct current (DC) charging from an EV charge station, and is generally quicker than AC charging. Not all fast chargers are equal, though, and this depends on their rated output.
|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.
Valve configuration refers to the number and arrangement of intake and exhaust valves in each engine cylinder.
|Fuel Supply System|
Responsible for delivering fuel from the fuel tank into your internal combustion engine (ICE). More sophisticated systems give you better mileage.
EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection)
|Bore X Stroke (mm)|
Bore is the diameter of the cylinder, and stroke is the distance that the piston travels from the top of the cylinder to the bottom. Multiplying these two figures gives you the cubic capacity (cc) of an engine.
97.0 x 84.0
The amount of pressure that an engine can generate in its cylinders before combustion. More compression = more power.
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.
A device that forces more air into an internal combustion engine. More air can burn more fuel and make more power. Superchargers utilise engine power to make more power.

The height of a car is the vertical distance between the ground and the highest point of the car. It can decide how much space a car has along with it's body type and is also critical in determining it's ability to fit in smaller garages or parking spaces
|Ground Clearance Unladen (mm)|
The laden ground clearance is the vertical distance between the ground and the lowest point of the car when the car is empty. More ground clearnace means when fully loaded your car won't scrape on tall speedbreakers, or broken roads.
|Wheel Base (mm)|
Distance from the centre of the front wheel to the centre of the rear wheel. A longer wheelbase is better for stability and also allows more passenger space on the inside.
|Front Tread (mm)|
The distance from the centre of the left tyre to the centre of the right tyre of a four-wheeler's front wheels. Also known as front track. The relation between the front and rear tread/track numbers decides a cars stability.
|Rear Tread (mm)|
The distance from the centre of the left tyre to the centre of the right tyre of a fourwheeler's rear wheels. Also known as Rear Track. The relation between the front and rear Tread/Track numbers dictates a cars stability
|Kerb Weight (kg)|
It is the weight of just a car, including fluids such as engine oil, coolant and brake fluid, combined with a fuel tank that is filled to 90 percent capacity.
The gross weight of a car is the maximum weight that a car can carry which includes the weight of the car itself, the weight of the passengers, and the weight of any cargo that is being carried. Overloading a car is unsafe as it effects handling and could also damage components like the suspension.
|Rear Headroom (mm)|
Rear headroom in a car is the vertical distance between the center of the rear seat cushion and the roof of the car, measured at the tallest point
|Rear Legroom (mm)|
Rear legroom in a car is the distance between the front seat backrests and the rear seat backrests. The more legroom the more comfortable the seats.
|Front Headroom (mm)|
Front headroom in a car is the vertical distance between the centre of the front seat cushion and the roof of the car, measured at the tallest point. Important for taller occupants. More is again better
|Front Legroom (mm)|
The distance from the front footwell to the base of the front seatback. More leg room means more comfort for front passengers
