The Optra Magnum comes with a warranty for two years or 40,000 kms and competes with the Skoda Octavia, Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla.
The 2.0L variants of the Optra Magnum are powered by a standard 2.0-liter TCDi (Turbo Common Rail Direct Injection) diesel engine, which churns out a maximum power of 119 bhp at 3,000 rpm and 314 Nm of torque at 2,125 rpm. The engine features four cylinders, 16 valves and a Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC). And the 1.6L variants are powered by a standard 1.6-liter VGIS (Variable Geometry Intake System) petrol engine, which churns out a maximum power of 203 bhp at 5800 rpm and 148 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The engine features four cylinders, 16 valves and a Double Overhead Camshaft (DOHC). Both the engines are linked to a standard 5-speed manual transmission.
