Maruti should now launch diesel engine with automatic transmission in all ranges- including Vitara, Swift , SX4 and Wagon R/ alternative. I feel - no buyer will ever return from a showroom without booking a car or another. IMHO.

I believe Maruti cant decide on the Desiel engines. Suzuki has no major R&D facility for Desiel engines. Suzuki has borrowed DDIS engine from Fiat and they will have to wait till the time Fiat doesnt signscheers: a deal with Suzuki.

Not by doing anything to sx4? ( I don't think so )
a) i said sources (these are guys working on developing engines for maruti), not the strategy head of maruti
b) since when does the city run on diesel
c) hey we all wanted to see the 150 hp 1.9 jtd .. so give us a break

Care to explain, what should Maruti wait for ? They are already producing & using the Diesel engine

3. Hyunda getz diesel.
4.Maruti swift sedan-> Only a petrol engine initially.
5.Maruti SX4 sedan with diesel engine.
6. New tata indica[petrol+diesel option].
7. New tata indigo[petrol+diesel option].
8. New tata Safari[2.2l diesel expected by end of 2007 itself]
9. One lakh ex-showroom priced car from Tata.
10. Mahindra scorpio eagle[2.2l diesel expected by end of 2007 itself]
11. Mahindra Ingenio.
12. Skoda fabia[expected again end of 2007 itself]
13. New honda accord
14. New mercedes benz c-class.
15. New mitsubishi lancer
16. Chevrolet Captiva.
17. Mitsubishi Outlander.
18. Facelifted Ford Fiesta
19. Chevrolet aveo[both u-va as well as sedan] to get diesel engines.

Now for some possible launches based on rumours:

1. Existing corolla may be relaunched as a c segment car instead of the existing D segment car,so the car will be stripped down further in all probability have a lower variant engine[maybe just maybe a diesel engine as well].

2. New tata sumo


Source




rumours about the old corolla are untrue..
toyota has a 4 year product cycle.. every 4 years each model gets redesigned and re engineered.
so once the new corolla (already in showrooms in the US & europe) sets foot in showrooms, the old corolla which is already at 9 lacs will be good for 2 lacs additional discount clearance.

ps: and to think i bought my 04 corolla for 12.35 lacs
