The Tata Tiago has the most powerful engine in this comparison and that’s all down to its bigger displacement.  The Santro, Celerio and WagonR have similarly sized engines with almost similar power outputs. However, the Santro does have a 9Nm torque advantage over the Marutis. The Santro also has a 4-cylinder engine while the rest of them make do with 3-cylinder units. All four are available with an AMT option for those looking for the convenience of two-pedal driving.

The Santro, Celerio and WagonR are all available with a factory-fitted CNG kit option that makes them more economical to run.
