    Diesel Engine Review

    • The Harrier has a lot more powerful engine than the Seltos.
    • The Harrier's engine produces far more torque than the Seltos'.
    • The Seltos diesel manual is much more fuel-efficient than the Harrier manual.

    The Harrier's engine offers more torque but the torque-to-weight ratio difference between the two cars is not that stark. The Harrier still has a better figure and therefore it’ll have better drivability and performance but it’s not going to be as good as the raw performance figures might indicate.
