The Verna is the most powerful car here with 128 PS, followed by the VW Group cars with 105 PS, and the 100 PS Honda City. The pecking order is the same in the torque department, where the Verna makes a class-leading 265 Nm of torque.

The Verna, Vento and the Rapid are the only cars in this segment to offer an AT, though the Verna makes do with an old-school 4-speed torque converter. The Ciaz continues to lead the fuel efficiency chart, followed by the City and the Fiesta, whereas the Polo-based sedans trail in the back.

Coming to the prices, the Vento is the second most expensive car of the lot, as the Verna continues its premium pricing with the 1.6-liter variant costing INR 89,000 more than the Vento Trendline. The Ciaz continues to be the most affordable of the lot, at INR 8.25 lakhs.

Petrol:

Once again, the Verna is the most powerful car in this class followed by the Honda City. All cars offer a choice between a manual and an automatic transmission. The Vento and Rapid get a DSG, the City and Sunny opt for a CVT whereas the Verna and Ciaz get a torque-converter unit.

Thanks to a 7 percent increase in fuel efficiency, the Vento TSI is the second most fuel efficient of the lot, but the Ciaz continues its reign in this department.

The order of most expensive to least expensive is similar to the diesel segment, where the Verna costs the most, whereas the Sunny costs the least at INR 7.4 lakhs onwards.
