Every car manufacturer in India as of date is busy in getting their cars ready with a BSVI compliant engine. Tata Motors has also started road testing their popular products with the new emissions compliant motors which will be launched in the coming months. BSVI compliance in the engine department is going to cost big money to car brands, and hence, cars are set to get more expensive once the BSVI roll out happens.
Seen here, the Tata Nexon was caught testing on the Mumbai-Pune route. The cars are being tested daily for nearly 350-500 km as their endurance run to ensure that all the new components work fine. Given the high temperature of nearly 45 degrees on this route, Tata Motors should get a fair idea of the part operations with this new update.
Along with the Tata Nexon, the Tigor compact-sedan was also caught road testing with a BSVI engine. The Tigor will be sharing the BSVI engine with the Tiago hatchback, and the key point to note here is that these two small cars might ditch the diesel engines.
Currently, the Tata Nexon is powered by a 1.2L Revotron and 1.5L Revotorq diesel motor. Both engines produces 110 HP of power and both these engines will be update to BSVI standards. The smaller Tiago and Tigor will ditch the 1.05L Revotorq diesel in the wake of BSVI roll out and only continue with a 1.2L naturally aspirated, 3-cylinder engine.
