All of these aforesaid model plates are blamed for the value-for-money buy. Read on to find more which can be the perfect choice if looking an option down the line with regards to tight budget.
Lifting up the bonnet of each and every one mentioned here says the same story except the Datsun GO which takes over the rest with 1198cc, three-cylinder engine producing 67bhp at the max and 104Nm of torque. Alto K10 drives a 998cc, three-cylinder unit worth of 67bhp and 90Nm. The company said they have tweaked the engine and reduced friction for better fuel-economy. The Hyundai Eon of 998cc energizes power output of 68bhp and 96Nm. Chevrolet is minutely smaller over the rest at 995cc, but possesses four-cylinder which generates 62bhp and 92Nm of torque.

Spark falls a good 50mm shorter than Alto whereas Eon is a bit fair for just being 30mm shorter.
