Auto Expo: Tata launches Indica Dicor
Tata today launched the much expected Indica Dicor. The Indica V2 DICOR is powered by common rail diesel engine. Indica Dicor features a water-cooled 1.4 L direct injection common rail (DICOR) diesel engine with exhaust gas recirculation and an oxidation catalyst with a turbocharger and an intercooler. Indica Dicor produces an output of 70 PS @ 4000 rpm and an increased torque of 140 Nm @ 1800-3000 rpm. Tata says that the indica with the Dicor engine will result in excellent pick up and a superior overall driving experience. The DICOR engine also ensures linear power delivery from the start and up to 15% better fuel efficiency. The Indica V2 DICOR goes on sale immediately with a price (ex-showroom, Delhi) of Rs.4.25 lakhs. Tata launched the Indica V2 in India in 1998. In 2005, Tata launched the Indica V2 Turbo, a turbo-charged diesel car.
