    Diesel Engine Review

    • XUV300 diesel has a bit more power than the Creta diesel but it has a lot more torque.
    • The XUV300 is also heavier than the Creta diesel. Despite that, the XUV300 has a much better torque-to-weight ratio and therefore, it’ll have better drivability than the Creta diesel at city speeds.
    • Creta diesel manual is more fuel-efficient than the XUV300 manual.
    • XUV300 diesel automatic is more fuel-efficient than the Creta automatic. You can blame it on the power-sapping torque converter automatic transmission of the Creta.
