The latest Rhino, available in winner, exciter and royale versions.

Don't know that exactly is CRD-Fi with piezo technology meant, as mentioned in that shoddy leaflet. Photographed is the top of the line royale version at the India International Trade Fair today at Pragati Maidan, Delhi.

No person was available to explain about the product, just a few girls.

, I am not the brand ambassador for the last pic.

It's quit interesting that fit and finish seems to be good and I am not sure of the Plastic quality though.

well i guess CRD-Fi is just a clever term for common rail direct injection.

its good to see ICML providing the latest in diesel in this UV.

piezo technology means piezo electric injectors - heard of this being used in skoda's engines also.

i am not sure from where ICML is sourcing this CRD engine, previously they used to source engines from rover.

Rover has gone down so they cant source the engines from Rover, what they had done is that when Rover was going down the technology transfer took place through a third party consulting company and they have been producing that engine till now.

well i read a little about this engine (CRD-Fi), the specs definitely seem great.

- 2 liter
- 120 bhp
- 285 nm torque @ 1750 to 2500

definitely worth a test drive i guess.

wow im impressed with this car.
it has really decent interior refinement possibly better than tatas.
I see quite a few of these in bangalore (mostly cabbies or call center cabs)
