Most fuel-efficient: Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Honda’s new and improved version of the 1.5-litre petrol i-VTEC engine in the 2020 City makes it the most powerful in its segment, with 1PS more than the 120PS Hyundai Verna Turbo. Honda has mated its 1.5-litre petrol unit to a new 6-speed manual and a 7-step CVT. The Skoda-VW TSI unit is the torquiest option here though the Verna Turbo has the most advanced dual-clutch automatic option of the lot. The 6-speed automatic option for the BS6 Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid is set to be launched soon.

Hyundai Verna Facelift Launched In India, Prices Start At Rs 9.31 Lakh

The diesel section of this comparison feels quite empty as compared to six months ago as many carmakers have opted for petrol-only sedans in the BS6 era. However, Honda has updated its 1.5-litre unit to meet the latest emission norms but it still misses out on the automatic option. The facelifted Hyundai Verna is its only BS6 diesel rival and it offers better performance along with the option of an automatic transmission too.
