Maruti New Diesel Engines Coming

Recommended Posts

Maruti Suzuki is developing two turbi diesel engines that would become available by 2014 .These are being developed by Suzuki

These are : 1.0 Litre and 1.4 Litre

Reasons being:

Maruti's engines are now no match to the power that Honda engines churn out , Also ,their contract with FIAT for those MJDs expire soon.This means no loyalties to FIAT,Which means Maruti Suzuki will again be KING of the Roads with even cheaper pricing and good service.

This is how business is done ,

News has to be rumour

1. Developing a Diesel engine is not child's play.

2. Fiat can't survive in India with its sale of 500 cars.

3. Fiat 90 power is more than enough upto Swift family(25,000 sales month on month)

Also, if at all Maruti needs a cheaper diesel, it can beg at Tata for its super FE 1.4L eV2 engine that delivers 25kmpl and also tata has its 1L version ready, so from WagonR to Ertiga, Tata can supply.

Perhaps this can not be easy for MS, because unlike FIAT, suzuki has no stake in TATA so for them begging engine from TATA would be not a sweet tasting tought but yes Suzuki can go to GM as GM had the stake in MJD development and so GM is using FIAT MJD with rebadging it in their cars.

It would hard so say, as new diesel from player who has not much experience in diesel technology would have to be tested thoroughly before they would become kings or the road again. Wno knows, there would be engine might even be opposite of what MJD is?

I think the news has been misunderstood. The news is that GM and Maruti Suzuki are jointly developing new diesel engines with technical assistance from Fiat. These new engines will be similar to MJD with little customization and tweaks. GM's SMARTech engine employed in Chevrolet Sail is the jointly designed engine by GM with Fiat.

Soon Maruti Suzuki will be developing another such engine jointly with Fiat.

Also regarding Honda's iDTEC engine,it isn't as high-rpm friendly as the 1.3L MJD from Fiat, although it offers best in segment power & performance. Excellent driveability too.

This is exactly what I said above. Forget any partnership between TATA & MSIL. However, MSIL & GM/Chevy is a possibility.

I have no clue about this one. Maruti came up with 1.4 litre petrol for the Ertiga but 1.4 Diesel- whooooo!..

I think MSIL has something on the charts.

Waiting for some more good news from MSIL.
