Hello Anil Bajaj !!
The engineer who designed and developed this car usually are highly trained, and they apply that training to find the right engine not only keeping in notice the car’s kerb weight but also maximum expected payload which contributed to optimum performance of the car and minimizing shortcomings, so don't worry about load bearing capacity of this car leave this issue for experts as they are well taking care of it.
As per users experience this car performs well on the highway, the ARAI certified mileage of ths car is 18.6 kmpl, as per users experience the city mileage of this care is around 13.5 kmpl and highway mileage is around 18.5 kmpl.

Well yes, the 1197cc petrol engine of the elite i20 is very well capable of bearing the vehicle's kerb weight of 1014kg. Generally the ratio of engine capacity to weight hovers around unity, for example the Toyota fortuner has 3000cc engine and weighs around that only. There is a power lag in the petrol version of elite i20 but weight is not the reason, and that lag can be overcome by proper gear shift.
