Completely agree with you. If they're going to launch an absurdly priced car (due to the tax), might as well make it exciting by giving it a powerful engine.

Fiat made the same mistake with the 500. I would be embarassed if my 15 lakh Fiat 500 with a 1.3L diesel engine got shown a clean pair of heels by a 4.5 lakh Maruti Swift when accelerating from a traffic light.
