one should look at the balance between the power specs and FE.
well someone can have a 1.2 block put KKK superchargers, get 150+ bhp - but that wouldnt be a point right..?? FE?? 3-4.

according to me (my opinion - of course) a good engine should have the above 2 parameters absolutely balanced.

this is where Kappa fails for me K-Series is more frugal and has more horses.

i-vtec - FE might be a lil' compromised.

My bet K- series followed by i-vtec (also this will be pricey) and then the Kappa.

IMHO, K series in Ritz is still new and FE figure of practical usage still has to come out. Its too early to decide that K series in Ritz is fuel efficient. We need to wait for user reviews and feedback. However I am not saying that the K series will be low on fuel efficient, my point is that we need to wait for the practical usage of i-vtec and K series. Time will answer.

The K-Series on A-Star is having good FE. So it's a proven engine as far as FE is concerned !

I think we are discussing only 1.2 engines and not the three pot 1000 cc engine.

I guess what he means is that by looking at the A-Star's KB 10 engine's oustanding FE, we can safely bet on the FE of the KB-12 of the RITZ as well since it belongs to the same K-Series family of engines.

the upcoming 1.2 TSI in VW polo will kill the competition in terms of performance, refinement etc. i believe. But is it coming??
if it does then its hard time for all the other 1.2s

OT: The number of cylinder make a lot of difference.
