NEW DELHI: Homegrown auto major Tata Motors on Tuesday said its new Indica, due for a launch in the second quarter of next fiscal, will sport four engine options, two of which will be sourced from partner Fiat.

The company would roll out two variants of the new Indica fitted with Fiat's popular 1.3 multijet diesel engine and its 1.2 litre petrol engine, besides the indigenously developed 1.4 litre DICOR diesel engine and 1.2 litre petrol engine.

"The new Indica would sport Fiat's multijet diesel and also its 1.2 litre petrol engine. The price for the Indica sporting Fiat's multijet engine is still being worked out," Tata Motors Senior General Manager (Engg Systems) S Ravishankar told PTI at the 9th Auto Expo.

The new engine for Indica and Palio would be made at the new Tata-Fiat joint venture plant in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra. The new Indica would be offered at a higher price than the present range.

Fiat has also rolled out a diesel variant of its hatchback Palio Stile fitted with 1.3 litre multijet. The company also has tie-up with India's biggest automobile company Suzuki India to produce the same diesel engine for the car maker.
