  • Both of them have far better torque than the WR-V.
  • Not only does the Seltos 1.5 have better performance, but it’s also marginally more fuel-efficient.
  • Despite the larger body and bigger, more powerful engines, the Seltos petrol and WR-V have a comparable fuel efficiency.
  • The WR-V petrol has a pathetic torque-to-weight ratio of under 100Nm/tonne. The Seltos 1.5 has an acceptable figure while the Seltos 1.4 turbo has a turbo diesel-like ratio of close to 188Nm/tonne.
