Yes, but these are mostly associated with Accent CRDis. That engine was a generation behind in terms of Common Rail technology.

Verna CRDi don't have major issues in terms of engine.

Knowing Hyundai they mostly wont price the i10 diesel
aggresively. MSIL will soon have Swift DDIS and Splash DDIS
competing with i10. So i guess MSIL has the upper hand

Good to hear that bro. Swift DDIS should be there Vs Getz D (both b+ segments). Hyundai Really Ruined their price and features if compared to Swift D.

Now, Splash with the same 1.3 MJD? Not sure if they will bring Splash with 1.3 MJD?

If Splash comes with 1.3 MJD cheaper than Swift D then it will kill Swift D because of their price and if they keep it in almost the same price as of Swift D then Swift D will kill it.

But what if i10 VGT comes with the price of Swift D? then it will be a tight one.

Splash D vs i10 D vs Swift D.

So, It getting all messed up in terms of predictions.

i10 with those skinny tyres can't handle VGT Power for sure.

Competition is really heating up. haha

If i10 D placed head to head in terms of price with Splash D then it will be a real threat to Splash D and Swift D.

Comments Please

AFAIK, VGT helps in making the power delivery more uniform than the FGT. So, it doesn't really matter is the turbo is VG or FG, and if the car's chassis is capable of handling the power (and torque), the skinny tires can be taken care of.

Now that you have mentioned it, I am wondering what would be the prospects of the 1.5 Crdi in i10. I just wish that the i10 engine bay is big enough.

Cheers,

I was not talking about 1.5L VGT in i10's hood. But 1.2L VGT.

no major issues with the verna CRDi engine till date though , and if if there is i am sure Hyundai would attend to it very soon and resolve. I am completey brought over by Hyundai Service levels they are simply amazing ...

Agreead Accent engines did have issue but remember they were the ground breakers ... the very first CRDis on Indian roads

I fully agree and share the same experience. Have been using Hyundai diesel cars for last almost 4 years and never had a single technical / mechanical problem- touchwood

That reminds me of the gap between need and greed. The difference between what the car needs to perform its normal function and greed of people like us.
