SCOOP: Maruti SX4 Cross could get Peugeot DV6 1.6 HDi diesel

Thanks to Team-BHP moderator, .anshuman for sharing this information with us.

At a time when all the media is abuzz with rumors of SX4 Cross getting Fiat's 1.6 Mutijet engine, Maruti Suzuki is indeed planning a surprise. The engine they are testing under the hoods of the soon to be launched SX4 Cross is not the 1.6 Multijet from Fiat, but PSA Peugeot Citroen's DV6 1.6 Litre CRDI Diesel engine. This is one of the diesel engines jointly developed by Ford and PSA Peugeot Citroen and is also used by Ford.

In other markets this engine comes with two different power outputs, 90 hp FGT and 110 hp VGT. We expect the SX4 Cross to get the 110 hp VGT version. The same engine also powers the Mini Cooper Diesel.

The plastic cover on the top has a Maruti Suzuki logo on it. Just like some of the Ford cars, the large turbocharger is mounted on the front side. The plumbing has large prominent plastic covers. The intercooler looks strange.

There is no confirmed information on whether this engine is likely to be used for YL1 sedan (Ciaz) as well.
