The beige interiors are only available in the 1.2. The 1.6 GTX is now the 1.6 Sport available only in Formula Red and Canary Yellow. The only major difference is that of localised parts on the newer cars. Like if you see the rear glass of an old 2001 GTX it would be Made in Brazil and the Sport has an Asahi glass. Thats the only difference I felt. No difference in strength and build quality. The car still weighs the same

Default New Palio GTX 1.6

Hi,

Recently, I bought GTX 1.6 from Manipal Motors in Bangalore. Have done about 1000km. Good selling from Manipal. Car is as good as I expected. Gives me about 8k in the city and 13.5 on the highway. I am really enjoying the drive !

Thanks

Default engine specifications

I think the Engine specifications are same as old GTX / S10. I am having a S10 and seriously guys its great to ride and FE is also not a problem its quiet similar to other cars having same weight and power.
