      Exclamation Maruti Suzuki SX4. Men coming back (again) ??

      Ok.
      This car was a replacement to one of the greatest, fun to drive Maruti ever made. It was launched with a brilliant price tag and mind blowing features!
      Yet, many felt sad that the SX4 couldn't live up to the Baleno's legacy.

      Now, there are enough evidences of this car going to be relaunched with a new engine and rewritten marketing formulas! :o

      So, how much have you heard of??
      Is it true?
      What is the NEW engine all about?
      Will it bring back some good spirited feel to the otherwise boring, brain happy car??

      Over to you guys.....

      I hope the new K-series engine is as rev happy as the G series were. Not a big fan of the M-16s running in the previous SX4's. Specially without the variable valve timing. I hope the K-series engines don't come in a detuned trim and someone please ask Maruti to lower that car and stop marketing it as a mini-truck. It has a pretty nice chassis and suspension setup, its just that GC that is ruining the FTD factor.

      I don't have much hope for it.

      The diesel is going to be the national engine (1.3MJD) with a 0-60 of some 16 seconds according to my source in Maruthi. The revamped petrol is just the same engine modified for emissions compliance.

      *sigh*

      Are you sure?? :? :?
      It would've been great if they could launch a 1.9D in compensation, then!!

      Anyway, I hope the new petrol is just more than some emission thingy!

      Since MARUTI has gone ahead and brought the K series engine with new technology, power etc for their compact cars, one cannot rule out the option for a new engine on their flagship sedan.
      I seriously wish they dont mess around with that 1.3 in this "MAN"ly car.

      Guys the official news from the Maruti stables for the SX4 is its going to be the same M16 engine but with Variable Valve timing(VVTi) head, and probably some minor face lift to keep up with the international model(sedan), but there is no news of a diesel version nor the better looking Hatch.

      Maruti should Plonk the 1.9D 120 bhp motor for the Sx4
      why call it a ' building' if it already built?

      Guys ,the new SX4 is already on its way to the dealers.I would get my car tommorow.There are changes to the grill,internal color combination-brown and beige.as momo said VVTi head for the m series engine.Minor tweaks here and there.
      This maybe a change which could be followed later on (no confirm dates) by the ddis engine.
      New colors are also introduced.Launch would be month end.
