Very good query!

From what I know, i20 could be the only diesel hatch coming this season.

Petrol i20 is certain, but we still need confirmation on diesel plans.

Punto in all probability will be available next year only.

Hyundai don't score high on reliability. Accent crdi's engine lost its glory after 100000kms and drop in mileage too. Even the Hyundai dealer agreed on this and they claimed that it is because of the driving manners of indians as they strain the engine too much. My uncle's Getz which has done 35000km had a gearbox swap at around 30000 and the engine pickup has comedown a lot.  Elantra too had engine complaint.

Yes, I agree with Crazy Cat, though Hyundai was the 1st. in our Country to launch CRDI engines, but they are certainly not the best in CRDI tech.

Their Accent Crdi had tremendous problems & that unit was garbage.

Then came Elantra, again its engine had complaints & FE was low.

Im not including Teraccan, Tuscon & Embera over here as focus is more on economy segment. Although Tuscon shared engine with Elantra, Terracan was a flop & Embera, well everyone knows, its a flop too.

Finally came the Verna with Crdi, now though I havent heard lot of complaints about the engine per say, but nevertheless, engine does not set any benchmarks in either FE or Performance.

So, in the end now its i20's turn & the hype is touching new heights with every passing day, but I shall keep my reservations about the new diesel engine touted to fit in it. Its best to wait & watch for a while, before making a plunge.

Well Accent crdi n Viva had many engine failures  after they clocked around 75k kilometers .I really dont like Hyundai for there Diesel , petrol versions are still fine and even Verna  had problems as it requires a lot of maintenance  regularly.

@murli: I would not recommend you to wait for any upcoming diesel cars. The only one that has a possibility to be launched around diwali with a diesel engine is I20. But we dont have any confirmation about the exact launch date. It may be after Diwali. Moreover, there is a very slight possibility of the diesel being launched simultaneously. So you may end up just waiting.

The present worthy diesel hatchbacks that you may consider are- Vista, Swift, and Getz. I would recommend Vista as its quite good on features, space and price. Fabia is a bit too expensive but if you want a premium hatch, take a look at it.

The i20 will probably not come with the diesel as hyundai wud not have had enough time to localise the engine to the desired extent..it wont be cost-effective for hyundai...ud have to pick one from the present lot..see if can stretch your budget for the fabia.

Congratulations Murli,  you have booked a good car.

Actually Palio had just fallen off the radar, so not many suggestions for it!

Fiat is offering some great deals on Palio at the moment, hope you were able to fetch a good deal for yourself.

Do post pics. & experiences once you get the delivery.

Dude, the most recently release Indica vista is the best diesel hatchback in the market. The Getz diesel is not as fuel efficient as the vista. Also the Indica has the fiat diesel engine which has won international awards and has been bought by many car manufacturers around the world and customised to their needs.

So check out Indica vista, its handling is not the same and the performance is definitely not the same. But ofcourse the looks, if you can bare with it....
