Also, weight-wise, isn't the VTEC lighter?
Baleno - 975kgs
VTEC - 985kgs

What is the 0-100 and 0-100-0 timing for a stock Non VTEC OHC 1.5?

Yes, that would be good to know, given the hype around the 'vtec' - I am sure narayan would agree. And if the figures are available, for the OHC1.3 also. BTW, what is the max power for the 1.3 and 1.5 versions of the OHC ?

AFAIK 1.3 is 93 Bhp and 1.5 non vtec is 100 bhp. by the way, is the Baleno faster to 100 than the 1.5 non vtec?

Nice question. Infact, even if the Baleno is not faster to the ton than the Vtec (which has 14horses more), it still would be something if it is faster than the OHC1.5 (which with the same weight has 6 more horses). So, who has the numbers for the OHC 1.5 ?

The OHC 1.5 was always overshadowed by the Vtec so not much importance has been given by auto mags to it's performance. It would be very diff to get the performance figs for this car.

I rem reading something in the region of 10.8 to 11.3 but i'm really not sure.

The top speed however is around 170kmph.

The 1.5 and the Vtec weight the same (985kgs). So it's 10kgs heavier than the Baleno.

Baleno is faster than OHC 1.5 to 100, a fact confirmed by various magazines. The numbers however are, as usual, a little sketchy.

IIRC, the Baleno LXi weighs 975, whereas the VXi weighs 985. These were the figures when I bought mine.

This difference is a hell lot when compared on bone stock cars. Which obviously shows in the end results.

Also one needs to consider the fact that the Vtec revvs to 7100 rpm while the Baleno revvs to 6500 or 6750 (depending on versions) minus the Vtec (which plays a significant role in the way it revvs). Plus the taller gear ratios on the Baleno doesn't always translate to better power delivery as well.

If both cars are to be measured on an even keel what one will have to do is get a higher cam profile for the Baleno to make up for the Vtec advantage, change the intake and make the Baleno revv to 7,100 as well. All this with the Vtec being stock. Only then would it be a fair comparo.
Atleast to a certain extent. Even then the Vtec would still be in a advantageous position.
I agree with Mcl... Baleno Vs OHC Vtec is not a fair comparison. The Baleno 1.6 is underpowered compared to the Vtec and does not have something called 'Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control'

What I would like to see is a Stock Baleno 91/94bhp Vs a OHC 100bhp.

Quote:
Honda 1.3L - 90Bhp
Baleno 1.6L - 91/94Bhp
Honda 1.5L - 100Bhp
Honda 1.5L Vtec - 106Bhp
Forget the 1.3L City.. what I want to know is
Baleno 1.6L - 91/94Bhp Vs Honda 1.5L - 100Bhp = ????

Also can someone post the last competitive pricing of the
Baleno Vs Vtec/non Vtec

I bought the Baleno over the City just for this... I know I was getting more More Value and Cost per Bhp with the Baleno.

AFAIK, even a stock OHC 1.5 is faster than the Baleno. Period.

yup, my thoughts are same. I would be quite happy to know that Baleno can outrun a car with 9 bhp more
