    Whatever said and done the prices are tempting.

    So what is this engine called Q-Jet?

    Very unlikely.

    The Swift Zdi already costs 8L OTR in Chennai and they are doing very good volume and couldn't meet the demand too. There is no necessity for them to launch a car for enthusiasts.

    It will become real Jet. I mean it would take off. :evilsmile

    Another thought - Why don't Tata think about a Nano Q-Jet. That would be real fun to drive vehicle. :D

  5. After hitting the dog in my last long drive, I decided I shouldn't do high speeds anymore and also let other hatchbacks go past mine, coz my car overtaking all of them has become obvious now a days. But now Punto 90 HP had got a nice contender on highways atleast. Now it is time to show them, BHP alone dosent matter, there is something called Dynamics which also matters the most.

    Surely fun to drive. The front wheels would be up in air half of the time.

    But, let's stick to the topic!

    Impact on the already meagre Punto sales?

    I see it other way round. Now that Indica comes with 90HP as well, let the people drive both (as long as Fiat is still sold with TATA showrooms), compare how both handle and decide. I am sure, the folks who are neutral to brand will end-up buying Fiat.

    Having said that, final decision will always be manipulated by family members, friends, but I don't think they will forget the TD in Punto 90HP even if they buy Indica 90HP. I might be fantasizing or dreaming but a neutral sales adviser will always give both the options. Yes, price point will be a decider but so does the car dynamics.

    I don't see any impact wrt Punto sales. What is there to impact further? Punto has never been considered as a competition from other manufacturers. Those who want to buy a Fiat, they are going to buy it anyway. Vista 90 may help Tata to pitch against Swift on the pricing and say that 'More power More Space less price'.
