mFalcon petrol engine seems to have a bright future in India. Diesel powered cars are being banned and petrol engines would definitely take over for maintaining the pace of the society. Mahindra has planned a petrol version for every car by year 2020, directly pointing at the development of bigger mFalcon 1.6 L and 2.0 L petrol engines for the desired purpose.
The current mFalcon engine is named G80 and it comes with a 3-cylinder configuration. The power production is 82 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 114 NM @ 3,500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox, delivering great city performance and making it a decent highway cruiser for sure.
The engine is lightweight, made up of aluminum and gets a plastic intake manifold. It uses low friction seals and returns a great mileage figure.
