Hello sir,
I want to know about performance of 1.2 ltr petrol engine of i20 elite . I heard the engine is weaker compared to the size of car , particularly at the time of overtake on highways.
Please suggest.

Regards,

I dont think there's any such problem
The car can easily attain speed of 100 to 120 Km/hr in its 1.2 Lit VTVT Engine and retains good acceleration

However - yes - if spoken on lines of Power to Body Weight - Swift (its first competitor) is relative light in weight and delivers 88 PS/tonne as against Elite I20 82 Ps/tonne performance - Elite I20 is heavier to tune of 5%.

What impact it makes is rather make Swift more exciting with slight better pep. Even the sudden surge in acceleration is felt in Elite Diesel Variants and are more to enthusiast taste.

Elite I20 Petrol may be bit unexciting vis a vis to Elite I20 Crdi Diesel version or Swift Petrol But - still - in no way can Elite I20 be called weaker in terms of Engine Pep.

Drive the i20 petrol a gear lower than normal and you will get good mileage and pick up...shift down when you need to pick up by first pressing the clutch..a quick light Tap on the accelerator and release the clutch to rev match and then accelerate enjoying the rev happy engine and pick up...most people don't know the proper way to rev match and downshift .
