I believe this is true for Petrols. I'm told they are all 1.6 these days.

Accents never had a 1.3 in India. They started with a 1.5, and a 1.6 was later offered with the 'Tornado' and then the Viva. I understand the 1.6 is now standard across the petrol range, but I could be mistaken.

Steeroid,

I guess the GLE (basic) is 1.5 and the rest are 1.6.

Check with your dealer. I've been told the GLS now comes with 1.6 standard - I was pretty pissed off because I felt cheated.

the 1.5 is 3valves per cylinder (12V) and the 1.6 is a 4v per cyl (16V engine). The 1.3 engine in the Getz is similar to the 1.5 with a smaller bore???
