@N_C - isn't the Swift heavier than the Palio?

Amen to that!

Nice to hear about the launch going to happen tomorrow!

I'm surprised to see that nobody has answered my query about the radiator.

According to January 2008 Autocar - the weights

Swift - P

980-LXi / 1000-VXi / 1010-ZXi

Swift - D

1065-LDi / VDi-1075

Palio 1.1 - 990

So I am guessing - Palio 1.2 - 1010 and Palio 1.6 - 1020

Any one help here ?

You need to wait for the launch to happen, i.e., tomorrow

late but still a bit on time. If marketed properly many swift Diesel buyers who are tired of waiting may gun for one.

Default has it launched?

well, if its going to be launched today, it sure is a quiet one. Even the fiat-india website does not have any details on the Palio MultiJet (just checked it)

I have my doubts. Wait and watch - that's all we can do for the moment.

If 4.73 lacs in Delhi, then it should be close to 5.00 lacs in Pune/Mumbai. Isn't it? keeping one eye on the launch. will rush to BU Bhandari to check it out.

The sales guy called me again. Got some more information about Stile D.

* Base model to cost < 5 lac
* Price ~ 25,000 less than its corresponding swift D model.
* Only two models as far as he is aware.
