What are the advantages of a turbocharged engine?

Less fuel consumption
Because a turbo engine is smaller, it actually uses less fuel. For example, if a turbo engine and regular engine both produce 250 horsepower, the turbo engine may only do that with four cylinders rather than six. Therefore, turbo engines can be up to 20% more efficient. So, you get more power and more efficiency. What could be better than that?
Going with the lowered fuel consumption, turbo engines also help to reduce your carbon footprint. They burn less fuel and in turn generate less carbon dioxide, which directly impacts our environment. So, to sum up, opting for a turbo engine can help you in many ways. They are more efficient, will save you money at the gas pumps, and will help reduce mankind’s effect on climate change.
