    My friend from Hyderabad who is owning a Punto from 2010 called me yesterday and told that he has decided to upgrade and he have Verna, Sunny and Linea in the list. He asked me what to choose. I recommended him Skoda Rapid TDI. :D

    May be Fiat wants someone to test 1.6 before launching it in its own vehicles :)

    Don't let him drive your Linea. He won't appreciate the power but he will sorely miss the ride of the Linea, or as a certain Rapid owner told me - "the plush ride of the Linea" :)

    Good call on the Rapid though. Once you floor the pedal, all other considerations get left behind.

    Cheers.

    Why Fiat wants to test 1.6 in other co's cars before launching it in its own vehicles?Fiat engines are more reliable than other car co's diesel engines.

    Man, this would be suicidal for Fiat India if its true. Imagine 1.6 ltr mil inside a feather lite MS; would be regarded as the fastest car on earth by 'auto gurus' and would sell like hot cakes.

    Also read in ET that MS is considering to cut the Fiat diesel engine procurement by half.

    Pulse is not having Auto gearbox.Only Micra comes with CVT Auto gearbox.

    EXACTLY.

    Recently while driving from Chennai to Guruvayur, I had unforgettable company from a Rapid TDI guy from Trichy to Dindigul. Unforgettable drive that was. That is when I got huge respect for this car.
