engine!!? for amby?
AMBY needs a very good Diesel engine. I think 1.3 MJD is underpowered. AMBY needs any engine > 1.5 L. atleast a 1.6 MJD should be ok .
HM should have installed a CRDI ISUZU ENGINE.
I heared that 2.0L ISUZU was giving 19 km/L on Highway (which is not a CRDI).
So they should have gone for a CRDI 2.0L Engine.
I don't know what they are going to do for PETROL version (ISUZU 1.8L) which gives only 8 KM/L (city) and 12KM/L ( Highway) ??
1.3 MJD sits both in SX4 and Ertiga with kerb weights of ~1200 Kg and ~1700 Kg. Regular Amby should weight somewhere around 1300 Kg. So 1.3 should not be seen as underpowered.
I am more interested in how they are going to change a rear wheeler to front wheel one if MJD is going in. Wouldn't there be any impact on the overall dynamics?
Isuzu crdi should have been a better bet however owing to the cost change related to tax slab change, would HM would go for it?
Will there be any takers for this car even if they place it competitively? Customers already have many feature rich options in all segments between 5 to 10Lakh price range.
