The Hyundai Elite i20 has been reigning in the premium hatchback segment for quite a while. Add to that, the recently launched Honda Jazz also created quite the stir at launch. But the imminent launch of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno might just upset the apple cart. What we have at our disposal right now are the technical specifications of all the cars listed above - and here's how they fare when pitted against each other.

TheHonda Jazz gets the biggest diesel engine with a 1.5-litre inline 4-cylinder followed by the Hyundai i20's 1.4-litre so Maruti Suzuki Baleno's 1.3-litre diesel unit is the smallest.
