    I 100 % agree to Jayadev..VGT gives you better mileage and refinement. But for reaching 0-100 there is only around 1 sec (Approx) difference between FGT & VGT .What I would suggest is they should come up with a different engine variant like the 1.6 or 1.9 Multijet . As the same engine is being used in Maruti, Tata & Fiat, people would generally think why should they pay something extra when all engines are the same :confused . Many people wont be aware about the build,ride quality or the safety aspects of FIAT cars. So what I feel is they should bring something unique like a better engine option which the other competitors don't have.

    all they need to do is alter the gear ratios of the 1.3mjd vgt.
    93 hp diesel is more than enough for India considering the cost factor.
    the same engine does 0-100 in 11.5 seconds adroad!

    I agree, but we also need to see what the in-gear acceleration timings of those
    machines in Europe are. If it has good in-gears too, then, it works fine. Otherwise,
    apart from the flat out timings, Fiat India seems to have tuned the engine fine.
