Volkswagen Polo TSI vs Kiger vs Magnite Turbo Comparison – Best Turbo-Petrol Car under 10 Lakh in India
Turbo petrol engines are proving to be quite popular and they are no longer available in only expensive cars. Turbo petrol engines have many advantages over a naturally aspirated engine chiefly the increase in fuel economy and a better amount of torque at low revs. For many years Volkswagen has provided Indian car buyers with the TSI technology but now rivals have caught up. By rivals we mean the Renault Nissan group which have invested heavily on turbo petrols and not in diesel hence both the Kiger and Magnite sub-compact SUV have a 1.0 turbo petrol while the Polo hatchback with its new cheaper Turbo edition based on Comfortline trim is a good option to consider. So, Which one to buy? Read on.
