    Petrol Engine Review

    • The Ignis is more powerful than the Polo non-turbo but less powerful than the Polo turbo.
    • The Ignis produces more torque than the Polo non-turbo but less than the Polo turbo.
    • The Ignis is more fuel efficient than the Polo petrol.
    • The Ignis has a better torque-to-weight ratio than the Polo non-turbo but the Polo turbo has a far better torque-to-weight ratio than the Ignis. So, the Polo turbo will offer better drivability than the Ignis but the Ignis is still far better than the Polo with the 1.0L normal petrol engine.
