    Honda WR-V is available with a 1.2L normal petrol engine and a 5-speed transmission. The power and torque output of this engine are 90PS and 110Nm, respectively.

    • Mahindra XUV300 produces 200Nm of peak torque. It has the best torque output in the segment.
    • With a manual transmission, Hyundai Venue 1.0 has the best fuel-efficiency figure of 18.2kmpl.
    • With an automatic, the Maruti Suzuki Brezza has the best fuel efficiency figure of 18.76kmpl. That’s admirable because the Brezza is achieving the figure while having a big displacement non-turbo petrol engine and an old-school torque converter automatic with only 4 gear ratios.

    The WR-V petrol has the lowest torque-to-weight ratio among all sub4m SUVs. In fact, its 99Nm/tonne figure is only a shade better than the Datsun Redi-GO’s 800cc model.

    Mahindra XUV300 petrol offers the best torque in this segment, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to all other cars. However, the Nexon and Venue turbo aren’t too far behind either. If you're looking for a petrol car with manual transmission and lower running costs, then Hyundai Venue 1.0 is a good option as it is the most fuel-efficient car in this segment.
