I also don't undretsand the urgency of importing the 1.3MJD, cause they could have done that at least a year back!
Because Team-BHP just promised that quite a number of people are waiting for 1.3 MJD in Palio.

Their yearly target is 5000 and now 50 MJDs are mere 1% going in this pace Tata's will aquire them one day

This is different from what media has reported. They are saying engines will be imported, not exported.

Sent to Italy for what? I think Fiat already has better cars there. AFAIK , Palio is only for third world countries (Brazil, India etc.) ?

What I was talking about is the net result of the change. We know the Palio bodyshell was designed with a different engine family to start with. Now with the advent of the newer powerplants, there must have been changes made to accomodate the bigger torque, hp numbers as well as the weight distribution might have changed. So in all, the final result could be completely different from what we anticipate keeping the fabulous GTX in mind.

Every car body is designed keeping certain power sources in mind, when technology evolves, the engines are adapted into those bodies and the original parameters change. Thats when we have redesigned cars optimising the usage of new technologies.

For that matter the 1.9 diesel was such a show dampener. Was such a strange move considering they already had the lovely 1.7 turbodiesel in the sienna at the same time.
The Turky arm of FIAT is already having this 1.3 JTD engine long back ( 3-years back). Just visit the turky website of FIAT..

Default Sorry

Hey all,
I am extremely sorry for my typing error. Instead of Import, I wrote Export.

My sincere apologies to all who were angry. Sorry.

Now I am giving the link about the news.
Here is the link:

Fiat readies 1.3-litre diesel Palio Stile- Automobiles-Auto-News By Industry-News-The Economic Times

It states that first 50 Fiat Palio stile will be imported from Italy.

No buddy, you still got it wrong, only the 1.3 MJD engine is imported from Italy!

It wont be a dream, since Fiat is mostly going to launch a revised Adventure with the 1.3L engine. There was a article on the same in a auto mag.

Thanks for the news.

Can we trust the economic times on the March 11th release date of the Fiat MJD car?

I am seriously considering this vehicle since I ran out of options because of the hefty pricing of Fabia.

Adventure with 1.3 MJD is anytime a best combination. Along with the new redesigned front of Stile ,it will be selling like hotcakes.

There is an article about FIAT in todays Business Line/Hindu (confused between the two..), where Palio MJD Launch date is confirmed as 11-March..so should be good enough.

Think its part of an interview with Rajeev Kapoor, CEO Fiat India,
not soo long a wait after all.

I think Mr.Rajeev Kapoor in that same article says "About sourcing components from local vendors, he said that Fiat would source 1.3-litre multi-jet diesel engine from Maruti Suzuki, which is produced in its Manesar plant under license from Fiat".

I am not sure how exactly will Maruti Suzuki will be able to cope up with Fiat's requirement, if the production is insufficient already
