Petrol Engine Review

  • The Polo has a more powerful engine than the Aura.
  • The Polos engine produces more torque than the Auras.
  • The Aura 1.2 l petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Polo manual.
  • For normal petrol engines, it’s not even a contest. The Polo is incredibly underpowered and has a lower torque-to-weight ratio than the most affordable car in India - Datsun Redi-Go 0.8 STD variant.
  • In case of the turbo petrol engines, the Aura has slightly lower torque output but its torque band is 250rpm wider. Aura’s torque-to-weight ratio is far better than the Polo turbo’s because of its lower kerb weight.
