Default Re: SX4 Diesel - Is it on the cards ?

Ultimately again the same old question. When will the sx4 diesel be launched in India and when will the deliveries start. I cannot wait to buy it and I dont want to buy in the second half of the year 2011.

Anyone having concrete information please comment.

Its funny how Fiat's own engines seem to be ruining everything for them in the Indian market.

The SX4 Zxi weighs 1200 kg while the Linea weighs 1210 kg (Kerb weight taken from the respective websites). Won't the Diesel mill will up the weight of the SX4 ?? This means it will be heavier than the Linea ! I'm really interested to see if Maruti can tune the engine to perform well.

OT: In the pic, neither plane will survive, I dont' think that's what you meant - SX4 diesel might just stay longer in the market than the Linea which is fast dropping to it's 2011 target - 0

Currently, offers are going on for both SX4 & Linea. I got a quote of 8.75 OTR for Linea Emotion MJD and 9.35 OTR for E-pack for Noida regn. I have a hunch that MUL will keep the prices below Linea!

OT! Linea can survive only with a bigger heart say 1.6 MJD now (and TATA would be ready with a new-hexajet engine series)

i dont think sx4 will come with 90 bhp vgt if maruti had a vgt it would have also come in dzire.i think this is a last ditch effort by maruti to sell sx4

Read as distinguishing between two models. SX4 should have something differentiating it from Dzire and it should be the engine.

Also think that manufacturing the VGT might have a higher expense, they will not worry about using it in Dzire - on top of it, Dzire is doing extremely well with the 1.3 75 bhp FGT. Also Dzire is just an additional 30kg on the swift - hence the power is adequate. SX4 should be heavier - so a 75bhp may not be great on it.

Too many versions floating on this thread; from 1.3 VGT to VW engine to now 1.6 MJD. Looks like no one has a clue what Maruti is upto. I think we should lock this thread till something concrete is out.

Kizashi launch is on 02.02.11. So i guess SX4 DDIS launch would be as per Sid's dates.
