    Many of you guys are very much clear on Power VS Torque. Whereas I am not very much clear about this :confused:

    Here are my queries:
    How this two factors are working together?
    What is responsible for a quick pickup and what is responsible for higher pulling capacity?
    How do we understand the Power "75bhp@4000rpm" and Torque "197Nm@1750rpm" and how do we relate this?

    Here's a really layman example.

    Imagine a door revolving on a pivot. Torque output determines how easy will it be to start the revolution. HP determines how fast can i keep it revolving around that pivot.

    That is pretty much it.

    But how come torque is more in punto than in swift though sharing the same heart and power.

    Thanks Gurjinder, that's the simplest way to understand :)
