    • The Nexon turbo petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than both of the Seltos’ petrol engines.
    • With the petrol automatic, the Nexon is lagging by just a little bit.
    • The Nexon petrol has better torque-to-weight ratio than the Seltos 1.5L petrol but less than the Seltos turbo. So, it’ll have better drivability than the Seltos 1.5L but not as good as the Seltos turbo.
