Hi Kapil, The 1.2 Kappa petrol is the latest engine from Hyundai which is currently available in its cars like i10 and i20. The Kappa engine uses new technologies that cut weight and friction to boost fuel economy. Kappa engine generates 80 PS at 5,200 rpm and 11.4 kgm of torque at 4,000 rpm in the 1.2 version.

On the other hand the 1.4 gamma engine was launched by Hyundai few years back, and it is available in its cars like Hyundai i20 1.4 L petrol. The 1.4 L version Gamma engine is capable of generating maximum power of 100 @ 5,500 (PS@rpm), along with a maximum torque of 13.9 @ 4200 (kgm@rpm).
So where the kappa engine is better for small cars, where the high fuel efficiency is the first requirement of the customer, the Gamma engine are used in slightly upper segment cars where the we give more concern to the power than fuel economy.
