If i am not Mistaken, FIAT will have a tie up with Maruti.
This way, Maruti makes it cheap and both FIAT and Maruti get to use it.
Just waiting for the day.

Are you sure the deal is still on? Because there was some speculation on the Tata-Fiat thing. In which case, Fiat engines may not be supplied to Maruti. Just my guess. Tata might want to keep the technology for itself.

thats the sole reason for the discontinued diesel marutis. since they used the tud5 peugeot engines which couldn't comply with the BS III norms.
