I think the Tata Safari was the First Diesel Turbo, followed by the Sierra turbo.

Yep, turbo charged, intercooled 3 cylinder engines with collaboration from Detroit Diesels.

This is the reason why the VIVA has some good numbers, it does 100kmph in 13.21 secs and reaches the 140 mark at 28.62 secs.

Quite fast isn't it??

Yes, it beats the Ikon 1.6....

I am not much of a Hyundai fan but I do like the VIVA Crdi, the Tucson and ofcourse the blistering Embera..

Default Re: List of Turbocharged cars Available in India ???

Could anybody please tell me, the W124 E-250 Diesel is turbo charged? Mean i was under the impression the OM 605 engine is just DI and not TDI.
