And yet since TD's are done in city conditions and since even automags etc who should know better cater to an audience that is interested only in friskiness off-the-line fail to mention the CHAMPION in-gear performance not just of the mjd, but also the 1.4 Fire, let alone the t-jet. The mjd is 4 secs or so quicker in-gear from 40 to 80 as well as from 60-100 than either the Ford tdci 1.5 90 hp or the Hyundai 1.4 diesel (figures from AutoBild India, Avventura v/s Ecosport v/s i20 Active.) Let alone the Honda diesel, which is so low-end-biased. The rapid and vento disels do not count since they're FEKU, cheater engines (as the whole world now knows) with awful CO2 etc emissions. The mjd's CO2 emissions are better than the Ford and the Hyundai and the Toyota diesels, and the Renault and Nissan dci 9 8-valve engines as well, i.e., likely the lowest among all small diesels in india! And yet the ARAI fuel efficiency ratings on them are better? And the mjd's overall cost of ownership and maintenance is unsurpassed too. The failure to appreciate the excellence and continued SUPERIORITY, all-round, of the mjd (recently called 'dated' by no less than Shapur Kotwal of Autocar) is a great sign of just how engineering etc-ignorant/indifferent/clueless we in India remain!
