    Petrol Engine Review

    • The Aspire has a more powerful engine than the Baleno.
    • The Aspire's engine produces more torque than the Baleno's.
    • However, the Baleno, with or without the hybrid tech, has a better torque-to-weight ratio than the Aspire. Therefore, the Baleno will offer better drivability and in-gear acceleration.
    • The Baleno petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Aspire manual. With the hybrid engine, the Baleno has far better mileage figure than the Aspire. It is overpriced though for what it brings to the table.
    • As overpriced as it may be, the Balneo at least offers a hybrid engine, which means there are more engine and transmission combinations to choose from with the Baleno.
