Default Re: Fiat to supply 2.2 Lakh diesel engines to Maruti & Tata

There have been conflicting news stories around this. Some interpretations are that:
a) Tata and Maruti Suzuki both ordered supply of 2.0 L diesel engines
If this is the case, then Maruti Suzuki can get economies of scale only by plonking the engine into both the Ciaz and S-cross. That would mean a different gearbox. The cost of import of a 1.6 L Diesel engine would be more than or comparable to a locally produced 2.0 L Fiat Diesel engine
b) Tata signed up for the supply of 2.0 L Multijet engines and Maruti signed up for the 1.3 L Multijet engines

Conflicting views so far

Will it be the FIAT 2.0l engine as speculated?

Maruti Suzuki is planning its transformation strategy and will be known in a couple of weeks - A strategy to make it more 'Premium' and moving away from its 'entry level' car-maker tag.
In this context Maruti will be looking at new segments and could bring in already existing global products not yet launched in India.

Maruti Suzuki has already placed an order for a large number of the 2.0-litre Multijet turbocharged diesel engine, the one that powers the Jeep Compass. The 2.0-litre Multijet is available in different states of tune from 110bhp to 190bhp of power and with the Compass it has demonstrated its ability to handle four-wheel drive as well.

This clearly indicates that Maruti Suzuki might have already started developing new products and has managed to keep the news under the wraps. With the quantum of engines ordered, it is likely that the new platform might spawn a D-segment sedan like the Hyundai Elantra or the Skoda Octavia and a premium SUV rivalling the likes of the Hyundai Tucson or the Jeep Compass. This might be the beginning of the return of the Grand Vitara, Suzukiís revered SUV and a premium sedan akin to the Kizashi because only this size of cars will warrant a 170bhp 2.0-litre diesel in the current market scenario

Interesting development indeed. Which vehicle would need it? The upcoming vehicles are SCross facelift, Ciaz facelift, Swift, Vitara etc. All of which would need the 1.6 at maximum, not the 2.0

Would be interesting if the Grand Vitara makes a comeback. The 2.4 petrol had it's share of fans, but the 2.0 Multijet can really bring it some numbers.

EDIT -

Or else the author of the article (a familiar name though ) has confused this with the 2.0 Multijet orders from TATA. There were many confusions from this thread itself, because FIAT announced both the deals together.

Is Grand Vitara being sold in any market? I know that it is discontinued in the uk.

Maruti has plans to achieve 2 million sales by 2020. I think Vitara S and D-segment sedan are in the pipeline. My prediction is that they might bring in Innova competitor rather than Tucson competitor.
