    Petrol Engine Review

    • The City has a more powerful petrol engine than the Polo.
    • The Honda City produces more torque than the Polo non-turbo but less than the Polo turbo petrol.
    • With the manual transmission, the Polo non-turbo is and Honda City are similarly fuel efficient while the Polo turbo has a higher mileage figure.
    • With the automatic transmission, the 5th gen Honda City offers a slightly better mileage than the Polo turbo.
    • The Honda City petrol has a significantly better torque-to-weight ratio than the Polo non-turbo. However, the Polo turbo offers an equally better ratio than the City petrol. So, the Polo turbo will offer far better drivability while the Polo non-turbo will offer worse drivability than the 2020 Honda City petrol.
