Thanks All for the responce.
One Question I have is, what about when you don't reach the 2k rpm mark, what about the buttom end, do the NA and the Turbo feel different even below the 2k rpm mark. I live in Kolkata and it's bumper to bumper traffic most of the times here.
A firend of mine was telling me that Dicor is actually a simpler technology compared to the Turbo and the unlike the Turbo where you have to wait to hit 2k rpm to feel the boost, the Dicor is fun all the way, is this true?

Now, coming back to your query, first of all reaching that 2k is no big deal. On 2nd gear even a speed of around 20kmph+ means you are more or less at 2k. On 3rd, 35kmph is always 2k rpm. And of course once you are on 4th or above you presumably have enough stretch in front to accelerate past the 2k rpm. So 2k rpm is actually a very low rpm at which the turbo kicks in. Secondly, even below it the car is immensely driveable as I said above. The NA itself is very driveable in city and so is the turbo.
And then I also suspect that because of the Intercooler which works all the time the turbo indica anyhow has a little more power than the NA. If you look at the peak power delivery of the TCIC Indica and the TC Indica there is a difference of some 6bhp. That difference is because of the Intercooler. So, if anything the Turbo is a bit more sprightly at any RPMs than the NA Indica.

Go in for the turbo anyday - they are more fuel efficient. I guess the DICOR indicas are not yet in the market, and information elsewhere on this forum is that the dicors will have the instrument panel in the middle of the dash board. Yuuuuuck!!!!

The Indica Turbo anyday. The Dicor is not here yet and there may be some teething problems once it is introduced. The Turbo is tried n tested and offers greatVFM. The X1/V3 may take more than a year to be launched and mat well be priced significantly higher.

I agree with you Mr. Phamilyman. Turbo gives Indica sufficient power particularly with AC on. IndicaV2 is defficient in power with AC on and without AC also I suspect the transmission in not properly matched.
