@Turbothinghy, europe has been more Diesel centric market, therefore the best in Diesel tech and more refinements and technology and matter in them from these european manufacturers, therefore more offerings too. Even take case of Peugeot TUD engines or Dacia engines that are so well performing in popular taxi/tourist sedans here. They have pretty much been the leaders in Diesel tech. So 'Kitna Deti Hai' counts in a different manner. Obviously if a car gives 5-7kmpl with a large displacement for sheer performance tunes, it still feels impractical even if cost of fuel is no object. --- Double Post Merged, Nov 18, 2015 --- @KKAUL, the 'slight old tech' means that design wise the MJD is advanced, refinements for a small diesel inline 4, an engine so well embraced in India, not just due to cost, but also what it offers at that displacement capacity. Having said that I always feel the older heavier blocks are always good for diesels and possibly contribute to much higher miles of engine block life. But I cannot ignore the improvements of Fiat's MJD esp. with the cam designs and stuff which are better IMO. I cannot simply think of injection cycle capabilities as a measure of one engine better than other, although I know it counts too. Apart from that I think @prabhjot has articulated well about the Polo. Now again, if I am to think of a diesel small car for a city like Mumbai, I would rather think of a Figo as more compelling car all tech apart as it makes all the right sounds for a small city car; esp. a diesel one.
