The turbocharger: Exhaust turbochargers featuring variable turbine geometry.
Overcoming turbo lag: Using a variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbocharger.
Advanced unit injector systems, and common rail injection employing multiple injection.
Use of piezo inline injectors instead of solenoid valves.
Common rail - third-generation diesel direct injection with injection pressures as high as 1,800 bar.
The diesel particulate filter: cut particulate emissions, trapping even the finest soot particles that are produced as the engine burns diesel fuel.
Better economy performance.
Greater efficiency by the use of smaller & lighter engine.
Direct petrol injection along turbocharging and supercharging.
Lighter construction of the engine. Optimised fuel mixture. Injector
with six fuel bores, converting it into a stratified charge engine. Charge-air intercooling. The turbocharger has a water-cooled intercooler.
Individual clutch for even and odd gears. Much, much quicker shift Within four hundredths of a second. Enhanced efficiency of power transmission.

Extremely fast shift time of 4 milliseconds when shifting to a gear the secondary gear shaft has preselected; Consistent shift time of 500 milliseconds, regardless of throttle or operational mode; Better fuel economy than conventional planetary geared automatic transmission and for many models even than the manual-shift version.
Relatively expensive to manufacture;
Heavier than a comparable conventional manual
transmission (75 kilograms (165 lb) vs. 47.5 kg (105 lb)); Greater potential for failure due to complexity; Relatively lengthy shift time when shifting to a gear ratio which the transmission ECU did not anticipate (around 1100 ms, depending on the situation); Torque handling capability constraints limit aftermarket engine tuning modifications.
Engine automatically stops at signals to cut fuel wastage. Engine automatically starts when clutch is depressed or when a gear is selected. Increase in fuel economy when riding in city.
Works only in city riding conditions. Increases the initial cost of the vehicle.
Efficient and improved alternators and batteries.
Energy management system, to store kinetic energy lost during slowing down or braking.
Improved and highly efficient electronics circuitry to facilitate the process.
Reduction in fuel consumption is minimal. Cost to performance ratio is not acceptable in Indian scenario.
Using tyres which offer low rolling resistance.
Amount of traction developed is marginally lost.
Manual gearboxes with optimised gear ratios.
The longer gear ratios for the higher gears reduce consumption.
Fitted with a system that indicates a recommended gear.
The body is more streamlined and gaps between panels are narrower. Headlights and indicators are combined.
Radiator grilles, underbody panels and spoilers are designed to reduce drag.
