Engineering point of view, the 3 cylinder has a better mileage for highways and 4 cylinder is good for the city because in low speed you need a better pick up and in that way peetrol consumption is much more. In highways the 3-cylinders gives a better petrol consumption than the 4-cylinders. The Car deco should certify what I am saying or find out the answer and e-mail me to: or any engineer of automobile qualified is requested to answer and sent it to my mail address for my knowledge. This question is important for those who are selecting Hyundai i20 Magna which has 4-cylinder and New Polo which has 3-cylinder. Which is advisable to buy the car?

Hi, As far as difference between the three and four cylinder engine is concern, the basic difference is in design and work process. It's a personal choice to go with a car engine with three cylinder or four cylinder. if you are planning to buy a car mainly for city driving, better comfort with using AC most of the times, it's better to go for a four cylinder engine. On the other hand, if you give more importance to fuel economy, powerful and better operating expense and generally drives in high-speed lanes, the three cyl engine is better for you.

Hi Sridhar, In my opinion you should go for the new Maruti Wagon R which has been launched in a completely new look and style. The New Wagon R is loaded with all new generation features including dual front SRS airbags, ABS, Central locking, key-less entry, anti-theft alarm.
While the Hyundai i10 Magna is available with a price tag of about Rs 4.04 lakh(Delhi Ex-showroom price), in almost similar price you can get the fully loaded top version of New wagon R (Maruti Wagon R VXI BS IV with ABS). Thank You,

    You've landed to the perfect place. It is the one-stop solution for all your questions related to Amaze 2018.    
    Honda Amaze 2018 Highlights

    Bookings and Launch: Honda has started accepting bookings for the second-gen Amaze, which will be launched on May 16, 2018. The second-gen Amaze is likely to be priced at a slight premium over the outgoing model, which is priced between Rs 5.58 lakh and Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).  

    Engine and Transmission: The 2018 Amaze will be powered by the same set of engines as its predecessor. And these 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engines will most likely retain the same power and torque figures as well, which stand at 88PS/109Nm and 100PS/200Nm respectively. Both the engines will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, this time, along with the petrol, the diesel engine will also get the CVT (automatic). This will make the Amaze first car in India to feature a CVT gearbox paired with a diesel engine.

    Features: Honda has not yet revealed the complete list of features but has confirmed that the 2018 Amaze will get paddle shifters (petrol only) with CVT transmission, 7-inch Digipad 2.0 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED positioning lamp, fog lamps, rear parking camera with sensors, push-button start and cruise control.

    Safety: Like its rivals, the 2018 Amaze will get dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and BA and ISOFIX anchors as standard across the range.

    Competition: When launched, the second-gen Amaze will renew its rivalry against the Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Tata Tigor, Toyota Etios, Volkswagen Ameo and the upcoming Ford Aspire facelift.
