this engine is doing duty in kia picanto from long back. I remember ACI predicting this little engine in santro which didn't finally materialize. now they talk about same engine in i10. if India is their global manufacturing hub, shouldn't it be in production in Chennai right now?? they why is it taking so much time?? does hyundai really want to release it in India??

Still

Bring in Hyundai , bring it. Show Suzuki a nice diesel car which has good built quality and nice price and a lesser waiting period.

would buying a santro for 5l and I10 for 6 make sense?
Swift and palio are still bigger and spacious cars.?

Worst part is dual pricing threat,if its true.I dont think these cars would sell.


its written 55(75)@4000 rpm in that little box. if i read that correctly
55Bhp or 75PS?? eh?

Verna has turbo lag despite having a long stroke engine and VGT. And this is a smaller unit and basically with a cylinder less than the Verna's engine.

NO,at five lakhs, there are better and bigger cars like Palio and Swift. The customer may like to spend more a bit and get a much bigger car.

Wait for the tests, I am not able to agree with this.

Just how good is that! Pete, how about that plug-n-play performance box?!

This could possibly be the car that would take hyundai into the Maruti-state-of-affairs ala insanely long waiting periods.

Its got enough power. Much much more than enough mileage(I am sure). It would surely take the small car market by storm.

Come on hyundai, give it to us ASAP.

Well i dont think they ll be priced too steeply!! Well yeah Hyundai do overprice their products but this could be a good threat to the competition. I see some dent in Swift LDI sales. If priced well then people looking at Swift Ldi might give a look @ i10 crdi. But i think we should wait for some more test reports before commenting!

The what's the real power at regular RPM levels (2000 to 4000)???
75PS @ 6000 is quite high-revving for a diesel engine. The Max RPM that I have heard is a 4800 redline on the biturbo BMW 335d.

I don't know how Hyundai managed 6000 rpm. This may cause wear-and-tear problems especially with inconsistent fuel quality across India.

It's 55 KW or 75 PS. KW is what certain European countries use.

The brochure says it is 75 PS @4000 RPM and flat torque 15.5 kgm 1900-2750 RPM
Figures looks good for a small diesel
Swift diesel
75 bhp @4000 RPM, 190Nm @ 2000 RPM (Source:Maruti web site)
Hyundai CRDI
75 PS@4000 RPM, 152Nm(15.5Kgm) @1900-2750 RPM
Swift got increased torque may be due to bigger engine

Well there is competition in the small Diewsel car market now.The FIAT engined Swift, the Indica Vista and th Palio Multijet. Hopefully, Hyundai will pay more attention to India as a market and price the Santro Diesel/ i10 Diesel sensibly.

Diesel Hyundais are expensive primarily due to the fact that they are importing the powerplants and also of course due to the Diesel demand.

But I believe that the new 1.1 unit will be made locally which should knock down its price. Well thats a lie since despite being locally made the i10 isn't the cheapest, is it?

Perhaps all the new competition will make Hyundai rethink its price, that 1.1 unit and the i10 is going to be a brilliant combo.

This unit is being selling in the Europe from quite a while know.

The car magzines have also been selling this news from quite a while, lets see this time Hyundai prove them true and plonk in the Diesel heart.
