    Hyundai Santro is available with a 1.1L petrol engine with a 5-speed transmission. The power and torque output of this engine are 69PS and 99Nm, respectively.

    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 produces 83PS of power. It is the most powerful engine in the segment, having 14PS more power than Santro 1.1.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 produces 113Nm of peak torque. It has the best torque figures in the segment.
    • With a manual transmission, Maruti Suzuki Alto has the best fuel-efficiency figure of 22.05kmpl.
    • With the automatic transmission, Renault Kwid and Redi Go 1.0 have the best fuel-efficiency figure of 22.0kmpl.
    • The Santro is the only car besides the WagonR 1.2 to come with a 4-cylinder engine. Compared to 3-cylinder engines, these have better refinement and are inherently balanced.
    • It’s worth noting that the Renault Kwid automatic is the only AMT-type automatic car without manual gear selection. The Redi-Go, which uses the same engine and transmission has this option and so do all the other automatic cars in this comparison.

    Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 petrol engine offers the best torque in this segment, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to all other cars. WagonR’s 1.2-litre engine is the most powerful in this comparison as it belongs in the B1 and B2 segment. So, naturally, it’ll win the performance challenges against the A-segment cars like the Kwid, Redi GO and SPresso.

    Hyundai Santro is 3610mm long, 1645mm wide, 1560mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2400mm. A wider body normally results in better shoulder room and a higher roof makes ingress & egress easier. A longer wheelbase usually results in more cabin space. It has a boot space of 235 litres. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage. Santro has a 160mm ground clearance, it rides on 165/70 R14 tyres size and has 35 litres fuel tank capacity.

    • Renault Kwid is the longest car in the segment. It is 121mm longer than Santro.
    • Hyundai Santro has a width of 1645mm, it is the widest car in the segment.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is the tallest car in the segment. It is 115mm taller than Santro.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the longest wheelbase in the segment. Its wheelbase is longer than the Santro’s by 35mm.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the biggest boot space in the segment. It has 106-lt more boot space than the Santro.
    • Datsun redi-GO's ground clearance of 187mm is the best in the segment. The Kwid isn’t too far behind at 184mm and it has the second-best ground clearance.
    • While all cars get 14-inch wheels at least in their higher variants, Alto 800 remains the only car that has the smallest 12-inch wheels. Its tyre size is also the narrowest in this class of entry-level cars.
    • The Santro’s lower variants get 13-inch wheels with 1555-section tyres. It’s a shame because Datsun Redi Go, which is the most affordable car in the country, also comes with 165-section tyres and 14-inch wheels in even the base variant.

    Amongst all the A-segment cars, Datsun redi-GO has the highest ground clearance, so it should be the last car to bottom-out on uneven roads. Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. In terms of cabin space, the WagonR’s bulbous proportions give it almost an unfair advantage. It’s tall boy design also gives it a better road presence than all other cars in this comparison.
