Cars in India with Supercharger or Supercharged Engine

We usually hear the words like turbo or turbo charged in the cars. Nowadays many car brands are launching vehicles with turbocharged engine. If you want to increase the power output of your naturally aspirated engine, then you can do it by providing it with more air by force induction. However, this can be done by two ways, one is with a turbocharger and the other is Supercharger. There are limited numbers of cars in India which come with a supercharger.

Difference between TurboCharged and SuperCharged

However, both things are present to increase the amount of air in the combustion chamber. But, there construction, design and working principle differ from each other. Turbocharger works with the help of exhaust gases while supercharger is connected to the crankshaft by a belt pulley. Supercharged has many advantages compared to turbocharger like it provides you an instant boost and power delivery. Also, there is no turbo lag in supercharger. You can see the turbocharger on the hood in Dom Toretto’s car in the movie Fast and Furious, but usually, it is present under the hood.
