Isn't direct injection an older technology, and most of the diesels today have it? I believe common-rail is a significantly improved addition, which skoda TDi doesn't have. As far as I know, common-rail pioneer is FIAT. Regarding TDCi, I am sure ford does claim it to be common-rail. Also, as of now there are many other passanger vehicles equipted with crdi engines available in india.

So its the smallest 1.4 duratorq which will be new to the market then...


guys, kindly don't pay much attention to crdi "name" stuff.... that was not supposed to be on a serious note, just to express that it looked interesting (little funny rather) to see so many private tags floating around for the same basic thing...whats in the name? lets see what test reports have to say!

DI diesel is a very old technology used in trucks and heavy vehicles. But it has a downside, vibration and lack of refinement. Its only now that cars are coming with DI engines.
As far as skoda is concerned, they do not use Common rail. Instead they have another system called pump dusse. Pump Dusse and CommonRail are competing technologies in diesel space. Both of them result in higher performance and better efficiency. Currently common rail is being adopted by many companies in the world, but Pump Dusse is seen only in VW flagship companies.

As for the owners bosch holds the patents for Common Rail and also the unit injector(Pump Dusse) but its VW who has shown faith in unit injector technology. Pumpe Dusse or unit injector means fuel supply to each cylinder is controlled individually as oppsed to common rail where all cylinders get a common high pressure fuel supply. This means more control and better performance, but the downside is more complexity.

Nah i dont think there will be any competition in between.. If skoda launches its (diesel) Hatchback it will probably cost like 6.5 - 7 lacs.. and sedan will cost like 50 - 80k more....

so price range almost changes... though skoda will sell for sure....

Isn't TDCi a turbo-ed CRDi?
Fiesta is between NHC and Ikon which is quite good.
Any news on Fusion Diesel?

Skoda wont be able to match the pricing, and the Fabia is much smaller anyway.

TDCi is Ford's Common Rail brand name. The 1.8 Duratorq in the Mondeo wasnt labelled TDCi though it was a Turbocharged Direct Injection - it was part of Ford's Puma series of engines that followed the rather antique Endura series. Great smooth engine but it had far too many issues - wasnt what you might call a reliable engine. HOpefully the TDCi will do better - at least its a Peuguot engine.

See here:

http://www.india.ford.com/servlet/Co...cs_temp&c=Page

http://www.india.ford.com/servlet/Co...ty_Temp&c=Page

The 1.4 TDCi is called the DV4


Wikipedia's response for a Ford Duratorq 1.4 TDCi search:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duratorq

The Duratorq DV4 (named the HDI 1.4 L by PSA, TED4 by Citroën, and Duratorq TDCI 1.4 L by Ford, and also called DLD-414) is a 1.4 L straight-4 turbo-Diesel. Output is 50 kW (67 hp) at 4500 rpm and 160 N·m (117 ft·lbf) at 2000 rpm.

The DV4 uses a Borg-Warner KP35 turbocharger but no intercooler. This is the same turbocharger as the Renault K9K Diesel. It is EURO3 compliant. It also uses Delphi Automotive's DCR1400 common-rail injection system.

Applications:

* Peugeot 206
* Citroën C3
* Ford Fiesta
