The stone-guard is an under-body mounting - plastic composite I think - which protects the under-body from scrapes and bumps. One more reason on which I chose the Petra over the Baleno. Don't have a picture as of now.

What do you mean by Torque engine?fiat palio 1.6 torque?if yes it is not launch yet.
The old palio 1.2 and 1.6 GTX are Mark II .
Our palio's engine are coming from Argentina while Turkey is also produce the engine which is 120bhp.
Brasil was the first country where production began in and they have been making palio 1.8 with the out put of 115 and 112 .

Engine that is available on Palio 1.6 series is the 1.6 "TORQUE" engine. Currently it is discontinued in Europe from where it is earlier imported from (thats what I read from the net). Now they are designing 1.8lts engine based on the "TORQUE" engine platform.

Hope I made it clear.
