TDI (Turbocharged Direct Injection) & CR4 (CRDI Actually i.e. Common Rail Direct Injection but Tata calls it CR4 Technology) are Fuel supply system to the engine.
Due to more & more stringent pollution (Emission) norms by our Government, companies are developing or you can say improving the parameters inside your car & its engine; all due to technological development & addition of electronics. TDI is Bharat stage III compliant (Emission norms) where as CRDI (Tata’s CR4) is Bharat Stage IV compliant. I don’t know where you are located but if you are residing in Major Cities (like National Capital Region Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, Surat, Kanpur, Lucknow, Sholapur, Jamshedpur and Agra) then you cannot buy TDI engine car because all these cities are at Bharat stage IV which is made effective from April 2010. If you are staying in rural area then you might be able to buy TDI engine car; but that too the selling of these cars will not be allowed by nearing to year 2015 everywhere including rural area.
By now you might have understood that TDI is old technology & CR4 is new technology. In terms of reliability & less fuel consumption definitely CR4 is the answer. Much less noisy & vibration compared to old diesel engines (Also better than TDI). sometimes as smooth as Petrol engine. Regarding low maintenance cost I would recommend you to come out of conventional thinking towards Diesel engines; now they are as good as Petrol engines; basic consumables & care is enough to these new CRDI engines. But if not cared at least this much, then expect big hole in your pocket. What I want to say is “Sasta roye bar bar, Mahenga Roye Ek bar”
All these things should have been told to you by your Sales executive in the Showroom.
Hope this is helpful you to decide!
