Advantages of K-series Petrol Engines:
Superior Driving Performance
Maruti Suzuki K-series petrol engines utilise one of the most refined gasoline engine technologies to deliver the ultimate performance. They offer superior NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) performance and improved engine stiffness, for a smooth and relaxing driving experience. The Smart Distributor Less Ignition (SDLI) system employed for superior atomization, provides uniform and optimized combustion for better performance.
K-series petrol engines have been tested and proven in time to be the best petrol engines by millions of happy customers and rigorous testing of lakhs of Kms. They offer enhanced thermal efficiency and increased compression ratio for efficient conversion of fuel energy. The engine is crafted out from an all-aluminium block and uses advanced low friction oils to further reduce losses and improve the fuel efficiency.
Best-in-class Fuel Efficiency
The engines are also engineered to be some of the most efficient petrol engines in the country, offering high fuel efficiency of up to 24.12 Km/l* in certain AGS variants. Next Generation K-series engine comes with Dual Injectors, Dual VVT, Higher compression ratio, Cooled EGR, all of which supports in enhancing fuel efficiency and performance while lowering vehicular emissions.
