While many carmakers are considering abandoning small-capacity diesel engines altogether, Maruti Suzuki has just developed an all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine in-house. The old Fiat-sourced 1.3 Multijet engine is being retired, and this is the engine that will replace it. It has just made its debut in the Maruti Ciaz DDiS 225 and Hormazd Sorabjee drives it to tell you what it's like.

Request your inputs on this. Being Scross is a diesel vehicle which is getting stopped by Maruti have been waiting for 1.5ltr petrol engine scross, but have no idea or no information about that. Pls suggest.

      Still Mahindra's 1.5L is best in terms of power and torque. 123bhp with 300Nm.

      They just introduced their home grown diesel engine and now decided to stop selling diesel cars altogether what's the purpose of developing it in first place?

      A diesel shedding weight for performance and fuel efficiency will definitely result in poor crash tests rating and a flighty feel in high speeds. Giving an airbag as standard across all the variants does actually mean it's safe to drive in high speeds. Old ambis and Contessas were great during a collision causing most of the trouble to the one that's hitting you is mainly because of sheer build quality which many companies like Volkswagen, Fiat and Ford doesn't compromise on will always be better on the safety front!

      Diesel will not die unless Government decides to kill it. Refinement is the way forward. And that's what everyone will do it. And forget about environment bit. No one cares. Drive across north India with a camera. You will come across open junk drops every few lanes. And no one does anything about it. Just forget about diesel.
