Downsizing engine capacities has become quite the trend, which is why we have seen an influx of turbo petrol engines in the last two years. The Ford Ecosport started the trend with the 1.0-litre turbo Ecoboost engine way back in 2014 and now other automakers have followed suit. Hyundai introduced the 1.0-litre engine in the Venue last year and it has now made its way to a range of the Korean manufacturer's models. The same engine is seen in the Kia Sonet as well while Germans have introduced their own power-packed 1.0-litre TSI unit. Here's the list of all the models launched with 1.0-litre Turbo petrol engines.
The Kia Sonet is one of the hottest launches of this year and the 1.0-litre, four-cylinder Turbo GDI petrol engine has been the most in demand powertrain. The motor is offered with a seven-speed DCT and a six-speed IMT transmission. The DCT variant offers fuel efficiency of 18.3 kmpl with a 0-100 kmph sprint time of 11.3 seconds, while the IMT variant of the Sonet returns 18.2 kmpl and is just one second slower to 100 kmph from standstill as compared to the DCT model.
