Dear Fiat lover, If you notice Amit's signature, you would realise that he's a die hard palio fanatic.

To get the benefit from the excise cut.

To get a benefit of excise cut? Well... they should have thought about
1. The cut in the sales figures
2. Cut in the Customer satisfaction - the new 1.1 would only give a couple more per liter as compared to 1.2 nv.
3. FURTHER Cut in their image.

What I genuinely feel is that all FIAT brains are in designing the good quality engines & Designing good cars. There aren't (weren't) any brains assigned for studying the customer requirements.

Other than the MJD Fiat is also going to manufacture 1.2 & 1.4 litre Petrol engines locally. I think the 1.2L may get into the Palio Stile. It will get excise benfit also and will have sufficient power for the 1 ton Palio. This engine is going to go into Indica V3 as well.

Good catch. I came to Hyderabad on vacation and I called up the Dealer in Secunderabad and they told me they have the demo car.

Looks like your source was bang on!

Can you get realistic launch dates for the Linea / GP as well?

THE Palio MJD is launched & there are no signs of 1.1 getting a 16 Valve engine.

Default No 16v for palio stile 1.1 petrol

Recently had couple of mail exchanges with fiat. Here are few lines from them.
Quote:
Please note that the engine has been designed to give optimum power and best mileage. The Palio Stile gives a mileage of 15.5kmpl under standard test conditions. We would also like to clarify that we do not have any plans of launching 16V engine as of now.
