Petrol Engine Review

  • The Ciaz has a more powerful engine than the Amaze.
  • The Ciazs engine produces more torque than the Amazes.
  • The Ciaz 1.5 l petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Amaze manual.
  • This is where the Ciaz earns its badges. With a hybrid engine, it will have decent off-peak torque but the Amaze’s revvy nature is apparent as its torque peaks closer to 5000rpm while the Ciaz makes it at 4400rpm. By the way, the Amaze doesn’t have a lot of torque, to begin with. The Ciaz’s stronger torque-to-weight ratio means that it will offer better driveability compared to the Amazes engine.
  • On top of that, the hybrid tech also helps it deliver considerably better mileage than the Amaze. Expect the real-world mileage gap to be wider as the Ciaz has some help from the electric motor to add to its off-peak torque.
