Petrol Manual Engine Review

  • The Dzire has a more powerful engine than the Baleno.
  • The Baleno and the Dzire have identical torque output.
  • The Dzire hybrid petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Baleno manual.

If you want better fuel efficiency, then the Dzire should be an easy choice. It offers the hybrid engine in all variants and without any price premium. The Baleno has the option of a hybrid engine but you have to pay almost Rs. 90,000 for this “luxury”. You can’t recover this higher cost with better fuel efficiency.

For the automatic, the Baleno’s CVT is better than the Dzire’s AMT. But again, if you want more mileage, then go with the Dzire as it gets the hybrid engine.

For petrol manual powertrain, both Baleno and Dzire are on par if you consider the hybrid engine. But this engine option is almost Rs. 90,000 more expensive in case of the Baleno. So, if youre looking for a car with lower fuel costs then Dzire should be an easy pick for you as it gets this engine as standard.

As far as petrol automatic powertrain is concerned, the Dzire is more powerful and more fuel-efficient too as it gets the hybrid engine.

For lower fuel costs, again the Dzire hybrid is an easy choice with the automatic transmission as well.
