    1. Suzuki tends to go for a powertrain with low HP, decent torque, and long gear ratios paired with a very light chassis. Nothing fancy but real-world fuel economy and running costs on most of their models is a crowd pleaser. Just drive an Ertiga and an Xpander to see the difference in lightness and acceleration. Highway speeds suck though. But it's perfect for city driving.

  2. With the never ending increase of fuel prices (escalated all the more by the Russia-Ukraine conflict), car buyers will most likely sacrifice/ignore engine performance for the sake of fuel efficiency...
