Petrol Engine Review

  • The Duster has more powerful engines than the S-Cross.
  • The Dusters engines produce more torque than the S-Cross. The S Cross offers better torque-to-weight ratio than the Duster 1.5L but a lot less than the Duster turbo.
  • The S-Cross petrol manual is far more fuel-efficient than the Duster 1.5 manual. A 30% better mileage is nothing to joke about. Especially considering that the S-Cross is delivering this figure even with a gas-guzzling torque converter automatic.
  • The mileage gap between the two cars is smaller when you compare the Duster turbo with the S-Cross hybrid.
  • The Duster turbo offers far better torque-to-weight ratio and will therefore offer better driveability compared to the S-Cross engine.
