airfoil, I think merc was behind teh CRDi tech. Correct me if I am wrong.
Palio buyers check thsi thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...d=1#post283312 (Palio is going very cheap currently (50K-70K cash discount))
and teh 1.2 was quoted at 5lac plus in one mag and 3lac plus in another. I am not sure abt the availbility of teh 1.2 Petra though and havent seen one too. With the new discounts 1.6 would be da best buy of the lot.

FIAT should have launched the 85bhp 1.4 FIRE engine when Palio was launched,or atleast the 1.2 80bhp 16 valve engine.These engines would have been perfect for a good start.They should have followed up with the MULTIJET diesel.FIAT's success would have been inevitable.(Yes,FIAt pioneered CRDI tech).And the 1.6 would nicely complete the engine lineup for FIAT.
Frankly,I quite like the present diesel.Its decent if not high tech.
Hopefully,we get to drive some high tech diesels from FIAT in future.And as far my signature goes,dont know when and if any of those cars will be here to give us "driving orgasm".Ok lets get back to the FIAT Petra 1.2 for now.
