CRDi = Common Rail Direct injection. Diesels used to have an injector pump which delivered a very accurately metered small amount of fuel to an injector which sprayed fuel into the cylinder. The fuel was ignited by the heat from compression and there is no spark plug. In modern engines this is not good enough to meet emmission standards. Fuel is delivered under extremely high pressure (about 1500 bar or over 20,000 psi!) to a common rail which all 4 injectors feed from. The engine management computer determins how long the injector is open depending on demand and because of the high pressure the fuel is virtually a gas when it enters the cylinder.


I would suggest that MP is an error and was probably intended to be MPV or multi purpose vehicle.
