Why dont we have all the manufacturers switch to turbo petrols? The benefits are enormous. Anything specific holding back - is it price to build the engines?
With Zest, TML confirms its not the pricing factor..

With Skoda, FIAT, VW, TATA, Ford, Hyundai and even Suzuki switching/ planning to switch to turbo petrols- a good number of cars for our market might soon run on forced induction. Companies like FIAT, Ford and VW have the engines, but are only waiting for the market to mature before switching to turbo petrols for all variants. I believe as diesel prices are deregulated- turbo petrols will become increasingly common.

Those left behind mostly would be Honda (But their petrols are still very competent in NA form), Mahindra (Petrols have negligible sales) and Renault - Nissan.

It is high time even Hyundai introduces turbo petrols. The current kappa engine has been over leveraged. The kappa engine is a complete misfit for a beautiful car like i20. FE also is at the rock bottom.

To be competitive in Indian market, Hyundai needs to introduce more powerful and efficient engines and turbo petrols could be a possible solution for them.

Talking above the automatic gearbox, the current one is listless and out dated. Hope the new dual clutch does some magic for Hyundai.

Happy Driving
