6. 2.4 ltr VTEC - Honda Accord.
2.4ltr SOHC 4 cylinder 16 valves 16 bit ECu 145bhp(?) (hope i got that rite). Honda makes some of the best petrol engines. No arguing with that!

7. 3.0 V6 I-VTEC - Honda Accord.
3.0ltr V6 SOHC 4 cylinder 16 valves 16 bit ECU 227 bhp. If anyone thinks the best in the D segment is the 2.4 ltr VTEc than he needs to look at this!

I think u have confused these two a bit,if i am not wrong...The 2.4 accord is i-Vtec while the 3.0 is Vtec.

My pick is the Honda engines too.... specially the purrr of the engine when revved hard is just addictive....which is the prime factor for the low mileage i get on my accord coz i just cant help revv it hard to hear that sound and punch!

Ikon 1.6 Rocam ROOOOLES!!!!!
My dad had a '99 Ikon, which was made, if oyu'll remember, before Ikons were dumbed down a little for FE. Oh man, how it used to growl! I would goad my dad into revving like mad just to hear that engine ( although the car wasnt as fast as it sounded).
Ahhhh, how depressed I was when he sold it. I vowed to buy back the very same car when I would have saved up enough. Yes, that is how attached I am to the old Micastone Ikon!

guys if you are ruling out turbocharged/supercharged engines,in that case the thread should be renamed "the best Naturally aspirated engines in india".and then the skoda 1.8 turbo petrol gets ruled out.
also you can call the nhc 77bhp engine to be good too considering that it gives an efficiency of a small care as its not specifyied whether we are considering performance or engine efficiency.

Guys, that's just too much!! You have covered almost all 1.6L engines. What we want to know is the BEST 1.6 engine (now that's going to be controversial)
Anyone would enlighten?

In diesels, I believe it is the Qualis engine. Rock solid reliability.

None of u guys have mentioned the Optra's 1.8 which gives approx. 69bhp/litre.
Although I'm not a big fan of Toyota, I still like the VVT-i on the Innova which has approx. 68 bhp/litre. But since the car is so huge, it ultimately loses out.
My favourite though is Octavia's 1.8 and Suzuki's 1.6 on the Baleno.

somebody was talkin about considering the engines only while making a judgement. But i guess its kinda difficult as we tend to evaluate the performance of the engine with respect to the car only for ex: The tuned esteem engine on the swift would be a better bet if put in the esteem itself..

Irrespective of the technology on offer...we tend to evaluate the engine based on how smooth the gear shifts are, how the torgue is spread and how it accelerates the car and how reliable the engine is..

Kinda difficult to guage only based o the engine parameter..

i like engines which have a healthy mix of performance and fuel efficiency.

My choices would be the octy 1.9 TDi and the esteem 1.3 ltr engine.
