Default Indica DICOR

Looks like Tata has silently started exporting the Indica with a 1.4 litre DICOR engine. When is it being launched here?

Check out
http://ib.tatamotors.com/value/GetSp...10&GalleryID=5
which is the International section of Tata Motors website and click on the Specifications link.

Hmmm.... the figures dont seem to be too different from teh Indica Turbo

the only thing is that torque comes in approx 800 rpm lower.

Read in some other post that the dicor indica can be tuned to give 90 Bhp and approx 18 KGM of torque.

Now THAT would be an engine!

Its not just about the torque figure.. i guess NVH levels, Emission levels, will be much much better than the TDi.

Now Palio diesel has competition.

i hope the specs remain the same during its Indian launch. Do they sell diesel palios in tata dealerships.

What is the max power output of the Indica Dicor engine? The torque specs look good.

Coming to your question, Tatas do not sell Fiat diesels and vice versa as of now.

I think the DICOR engine will be first put in the Indigo and gradually downshifted to the Indica.

Palio diesel lost it after the Indica turbo. the DICOR make it a dinosaur equivalent.

One question to the indica owners..... on the road i see quite a lot of indica's with rear wheels (i dont know the exact techie term for it) looking like / \ ... why is that? And it seems to be a common problem with indica more so with the older one (pre v2's) and lesser in the v2's but still there... is it easily corrected?

Most of them are taxi's frequently overloaded and never sent for alignment.
