Thread for New Delhi Auto Expo - 2014

Discussion in 'Non FIAT Cars and two wheelers' started by srida, Jan 25, 2014.

  1. Indian Autos Blog informed you earlier this week that the upcoming Auto Expo for Tata Motors is going to be big in terms of new production and concept cars.
    Apart from the Falcon 4 hatchback, the Falcon 5 compact sedan and the new Revotron engine, Tata will also show a crossover concept at the exhibition. Dubbed the Tata Jump, the concept is based on the Vista’s X1 platform.

    The Jump would be a full fledged crossover, and not like a dressed-up Vista hatchback. (Image – Tata Vista D90 Xtreme Concept from last year’s unveiling)​

    Autocar reports that the Jump will be a sub-4 meter crossover, poised to challenge the likes of the Ford EcoSport.
    Sources have told Indian Autos Blog that the Jump has been given the green light for production and that a 2015 market launch can be expected.
    Powering the Jump will be a 1.2-liter Revotron engine tuned to produce 100 bhp. Meanwhile, Autocar says that Tata is developing an all-new diesel engine which could see its introduction in the Jump.
    Tata Motors has a long history with the Geneva Motor Show. Hence, the Jump could be presented again at the Geneva Show in March this year, for the international visitors and press.
    Stay tuned to Indian Autos Blog for more information on the Tata Jump.

  2. New details have emerged on Chevrolet’s plans for the Auto Expo 2014. We had reported earlier that the company would bring the Beat Facelift, apart from a few display only models.

    Now Autocar India reports that Chevrolet will conduct a global debut for the Chevrolet Adra concept at the Auto Expo 2014. The Adra concept would be a sub-4meter compact SUV keeping Indian conditions in mind. It will compete with the likes of the Renault Duster and the Ford EcoSport. The Adra concept is based on GM’s Gamma 2 global platform that underpins the Beat, Sonic and the Trax.The smallest SUV in GM’s arsenal now is the Trax. The Trax, however, is 4.2 meters in length, making it a tad too lengthy to duck under the 4 meter mark, making it ineligible for excise benefits. The report states power for the Adra would come from the same 1.3-liter diesel engine that produces 77 hp that powers the Sail and the Enjoy.

    The SX4 crossover looks quite good. But it will need a 1.6 diesel as minimum to lug around the weight. But they still do not have access to this engine.

    Or, as usual this will undergo a heavy dose of weight reduction to suit the 1.3 vgt engine. End result a car that is simply won't be around with a good build.

    A source tells me Maruti is keen on importing the engine. Come what may - they want a 1.6 MJD in the SX4 crossover.

    It will be a blow to Fiat if Maruti releases the 1.6 before Fiat.

    I expected Fiat will offer the 1.6 MJD on the top-end variant of the new Linea by importing like the 1.4 Tjet.

    But this again will be late 2014 or early 2015. Fiat can still get the 1.6 out in the Linea if they really wish to by assembling the engine here like the 1.3. But what is stopping them apart from cost (if they import) is anybodys guess.
