Diesel Engine Review

  • The Freestyle and the Amaze have identical power output.
  • The Freestyles engine produces more torque than the Amazes.
  • The Freestyle doesn’t offer diesel + automatic combination while the Amaze does and at a very attractive price too. What you lose with this combination is 20% power and torque and 15% mileage. It is priced well though and the trade-off for refined diesel automatic may be worth it to some buyers.
  • The Amaze 1.5 L diesel manual is more fuel-efficient than the Freestyle manual.

The Freestyles engine offers more torque, so it will offer better driveability compared to the Amazes engine.

For petrol powertrain, Freestyles engine offers more torque and higher torque-to-weight ratio for significantly better drivability. The Amaze and Freestyle have similar mileage figures.

As far as diesel powertrain is concerned, Freestyles engine offers more torque and better torque-to-weight ratio and thus better drivability.
