Even 1bhp means a lot.Many people spend 5k on a K&N filter,just for that additional 5-6bhp.

Coming back to the topic,the Turbocharged Indica with Intercooler is a great idea.But it all comes down to how thes particular test car performs.It`ll be a boon during these fuel-wars.

the car wont be as powerful as the indigo tdi...they cant afford to do that..they have to keep the costs low on this one..as far as the petrol indica seen...they plannin a powerful engine on that one (near the 90 bhp mark) but thats some time in the comin as the competitor the 1.6 palio gtx is no more being made (as of date) but that was the target once 100bhp on an indica (it was supposed to be a sports version with some comestic alterations and the major engine change) and also experimenting with other fuels...abt the drive...gear box needs major improvements(even the engineers were cribbin) the suspension is to stiff...roll is pronounced...but u cant judge on these parameters as it was a test car...the final product when out should much better...as of now the car is back at the plant for other developmental work after testing in mumbai
