Ignis Petrol will be priced near to Diesel QJD. Then I have a question why would I buy Vista 1.4 Petrol. Vista is not having racing DNA and it is Family hatchback so I see nobody will endup buying it.

The Vista with wider tyres, larger aloys, firmer suspension - which is all very doable could actually be very good with the 1.4 engine, racing DNA can be induced with a few tweaks.

absolutely no idea, but a launch is confirmed for sure. It will most probably be in aura ABS/aura plus trim levels.

@ Sid : any news on a vista with a VGT ? I heard rumours a long time ago but there has been no follow up ever since.

That sounds good. Good to hear that some manufacturers are making more powerful cars in the hatch segment, while others are moving to smaller mill versions.
What all goes in releasing a more powerful version of a car? Do they just re-tune the engine (newer mapping?) or also do extra stuff like firming up the suspension, stronger brakes etc?
+1 for 90bhp swift!

This isn't really going to fire up emotions. Unless they inject life in the steering of the Vista.

OT, but I wonder why Maruti didnt get access to the 90 BHP - their SX4 would have sold like hot cakes ?

But for a car that big, wouldn't 90BHP be a tad underpowered?
