After the new emission norms were introduced, most manufacturers decided to reduce the engine size to follow the rules, which is better for both the environment and the car manufacturer as smaller engines offer better fuel efficiency.

What is turbocharged technology
Turbocharged is a technique that further increases the air pressure within the engine. Pressing the air more in the engine chamber means that there is more room for fuel in the chamber and more fuel directly means that more power is generated. Which directly increases the performance of the engine. It provides far more output than a normal engine. However, the flow of air in a normal engine depends entirely on the atmosphere, which is in stark contrast to turbocharged engines.
