Whats the source of this data?

Also wouldnt the LT be available with LPG , sounds very strange. Is it because the high end variant customer would not like to go for LPG ?

Chevrolet Spark

and after all, how many people really end up buying LPG cars in top end models?

Wagon R does not have LPG option in vxi varient.

I guess 3.52Lakhs is for the PS LPG variant. Here in Hyderabad, the PS non-LPG variant after 45k discount comes to around 2.85Lakhs(This discount has been running since September 2008; may be we can assume thats what it is worth)

But with this pricing, the PS LPG variant is in the region of WagonR Duo and Santro LPG.

Which one would you prefer? I would prefer WagonR any day. Else Santro. Only thing spark has some advantage over the rest is the Sequential Kit, but I havent faced any lag while test driving the WangonR or Santro LPG variant when compared to the respective petrol variants.

Also the suspension in the rear, I felt its better in the Spark. But the driving position is excellent in the WagonR. Also leg room isnt great in the spark when compared to WagonR or Santro. (OK, I am a bit tall at 6'2''.)

LPG on those engine will have very less power. So its just Spark. Probably AVEO/UVA coming with the diesel heart.

Why would LPG on UVA have less power? It has a more powerful engine than Spark. Your second statement may be true but it's very hard to say if even that would help boost up the sales of UVA unless they come up with a competitive pricing.

I own a Spark and am pretty happy with it , I've driven from Jammu to Karnataka on it ( different trips ) covering almost all major highways.

I'll definately go for UVA diesel if they come up with a nice price tag

Engine is. But when you put the LPG, it cant deliver similar power on those heavier vehicles. Thats why on an Optra they put CNG (available in Delhi).

I also heard of CNG on these may be available in delhi region shortly.

LPG with a sequential kit is much more advanced than LPG with a venturi type kit found in maruti , santro. Also much more expensive . It has its own ecu and delivers power comparable to petrol with hardly any power loss. In fact the more advanced liquid phase lpg injection , as against gas phase injection, can actually increase the bhp as compared to petrol. Low resale value of spark and the future of the parent company are the only two factors holding back spark otherwise this is a good car especially the lpg variant is value for money

I might go and check for the Spark LPG this weekend. I'll let you know the response.

Spark LPG is approximately Rs. 30,000 more expensive than the petrol one. Ex-showroom is approximately Rs. 20,000 more and discount is Rs. 10,000 less. Seems like a decent deal!
