there is no need to camouflage them since the whole world has seen them at the auto expo.

karan - they have probably delayed the launch to sort out niggles which is a good thing.

Another thing thats noticeable is the higher GC than the curent gen Indica. I suspect it was a diesel because of the engine sound, but it was not as pronounced as the current gen. NVH levels should be better in this one.

Apart from X1, they are probably working on another design code named X2.

Looks are on the lines of SWIFT, with a 1.3 MJD

it would be running fiat 1.3 Multijet hence better engine sound compared to Dicor.

I wish X1 comes with the VGT (Variable Geometric Turbo) with their version of MultiJet. I heard that it delivers 75bhp, with VGT It is Peted in Factory

I guess you mean the X4, but we still have no proof that there is indeed such a platform.

Yes Teddy, that would make a much sweeter deal and will make it more attractive.

Not really, X3 was code for the Nano project. Not sure if they would change the project codes before the completion of the project.
