Yes the 1.3MJD engine from Fiat is excellent in terms of both FE and performance. Atleast 12kmpl can be got in city and 18kmpl in highways with speeds around 100-120kmph.

SX4 D vs Fiesta TDCI vs Verna CRDI vs Vento is exciting!

We are talking about Diesel SX4 and if even equiped with a VW 1.6ltr D heart, the FE might not be less than 13 to 14 in city driving conditions and around 18 on Highways, which isn't bad at all compared to the Petrol sibling...These are all latest Crdi Diesels which are fine tuned for maximum fuel efficiency and Power. Yes, at the moment the SX4 Petrol isn't much fuel efficient and that's the reason for its sluggish sales as well, but once this SX4 D steps in, its pretty sure to drive in lot of buyers[drive]
Will VW give 1.6ltr Diesel engines to MS for their SX4 so soon [confused]. Vento is still not fully on road.

I guess nothing can be deemed true at the moment, but with new alliances and tie-ups between Maruti, VW or Fiat, anything can happen. But most probably they will plot in the 1.3 MJD from Fiat with 90ps of power and they will take ahead their popular DDIS tag ahead with this SX4 D[rules]

Maruti Suzuki will introduce a diesel variant of the SX4 early next year. The SX4 diesel will be powered by a 1.3 liter turbo charged engine. The engine is the same one used in the Swift and Ritz and the technology will be sourced from Fiat. Will the 1.3L motor be enough to haul the SX4s weight? Will Maruti launch a 90hp version of the diesel SX4? All these questions are yet to be answered, but we hope the SX4 is as fun to drive as the Swift is.

“The production of a 1.3 litre diesel engine with turbo charger is going on and we will start assembling it in SX4 once our plants reopen on January 3 next year after the annual weekly maintenance shutdown,” Maruti Suzuki India Managing Executive Officer (Production) M M Singh said.

I thought the newer diesel engines on Marutis would come from VW. I wish the 90HP come under the hood.

Good news. Maruti Suzuki also needs to add some extra frills in terms of features, along with the Diesel engine in the SX4. The car is not doing so good for company, like most of us would have expected. Also, it was a mistake by Maruti to increase prices with the launch of Automatic Transmission variant. This time, they need to maintain the balance of price and power, right. I am hoping for a 90 BHP Diesel, which at least will not have a reduced fuel economy due to Diesel, if not the high.

Drive Safe,

Hope the diesel SX4 does the trick! this is one Car i just love. Masculine looks, amazing ground clearance for Indian roads, Good driving position etc. Even the VVT engine failed to boost up sales for this car.

One more key factor is the torque that diesel engine for SX4 can achieve. Considering the bulkiness of SX4, this would be a key thing in order to achieve the ''driver's car'' tag.

Re: Maruti SX4 Diesel Coming Finally

Maruti will finally launch the diesel version of the Suzuki SX4 in the second half February. The mid-size saloon will use the same Fiat-sourced 90bhp, 1.3 Multi-jet diesel, that powers the Linea and Indigo Manza. However, according to Maruti sources, the SX4 diesel which is estimated to be around 70kg lighter will offer better performance and economy than its rivals. Expect the diesel SX4 to cost around Rs 6.99 lakh or just Rs 10,000 more than the existing petrol version. source - autocarindia.com

Let us hope that the launch of Diesel version helps the SX4 achieve more in the numbers game!

It is a refined car packed with features and the diesel version that too with the tested & tried 1.3 MJD heart should do the trick for SX4.

Waiting eagerly for the launch of the car!
