As far as the 70PS 1.2 (from the Fabia) being a launch engine, isn't that what I've been saying all along??
I think you got it wrong. If you read carefully they do mention Photo#2 as an international spec and photo #1 as Indian spec.

So we have one set of folks who swear by 1.2MPI only and another set of folks who say 1.2TSI. All these in the first release itself. For the hatchback. <Lets keep the price aside for a while>

1.2 70 PS cost = 11,995 GBP
1.2TSI cost = 14,535 GBP

Difference = 2,540 GBP ==> 2 Lacs INR (difference in Polo S and Polo SEL)

All are approximate values. So whats the whole deal of being expensive and all? if the engine difference is somewhere around 1.5 Lacs , why are we speculating on the high costs? If they can roll it as a variant, is there a problem?

Skoda Fabia to get revised 1.2-litre petrol engine
link India Automotive: Skoda Fabia to get revised 1.2-litre petrol engine


The new 1.2-litre petrol engine could be introduced on the India-spec Skoda Fabia by early-2010. This engine will also be offered on the VW Polo

Škoda has started building a revised version of its 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine at its plant in Mladá Boleslav in the Czech Republic. And yes, this new engine is quite likely to find its way into the Skoda Fabia 1.2 that’s sold in India as well as the Volkswagen Polo that’ll go on sale here in 2010.

The revised 1.2-litre engine gets a cogged belt to drive the camshafts (instead of the old timing chain) and a lighter crankshaft. The benefits are said to be reduced weight, smoother running and better fuel efficiency.

1.2TDI? Never heard of that engine from VW before. Is this something made for India only?

The silver car gives me hope that it'll be properly specced at least at the top end. Without the goodies that the i20 offers, VW is going to have trouble selling the top end model.

Did anyone notice the 5 lug nuts on the wheel? Most cars below 10L have only 4?

Its derived from 1.6TDI engine by removing one cylinder. Its used in Polo BlueMotion launched in Germany. Its scheduled to be launch in UK in near future.

Silver Model with 1.2LTSI. No need of fancy interiors like i20. I am going to pick that up for sure. VW any day.

Skoda Yeti with 1.2 TSi petrol is likely to be in range of 10 lakhs so 1.2 TSi will be pricy

Fabia has 5 lug nuts with one nut different from other 4 as a anti theft deterent ( a different allen bold head ) requiring seperate spanner to open the allen bolt.

Reviews of this 1.2CRDi Engine says that it is tuned for fuel efficiency and its a bit rough compared to 1.4 TDI engine. Following are the links for Polo BlueMotion.

The websites mentioned couple of things on the 1.2 CRDi

1) BlueMotion is to be released in may, 2010. So what will happen to the Jan/March launch?
2) Low gears/Low speeds are really sluggish.Especially second and third gear. Is it advisable for city driving?
3) It has a START/STOP technology. Will we get this? I doubt.
4) Looks more and more like a Fuel saver than Power and drivability.Fuel consumption is the decisive criteria for buying - then this would figure out in a nicer way.
