All the manufacturers in the country are currently working on tuning their engines to meet the upcoming emission norms. Some are already ready with the line up whereas some are still working on it. With the new BS6 emission norms in place, some of the cars will get a new engine whereas the other with the same engine will see a bump in power output. Here is the list of such vehicles that will see a power boost in the coming months.
Renault Triber Turbo Petrol
Renault Triber is the the sub-4 meter compact MPV that has been doing good in terms of sales for Renault ever since its launch. It is a proper 6-seater MPV and one of the major drawback of the vehicle is the engine that feels underpowered. Currently the triber gets the same 1.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine from Kwid. Things are about to change as the Triber will soon get the 1.0 litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine producing 100 Ps and 160 Nm of torque.
Renault has dumped the 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine in the Duster as it was not BS6 compliant and were not willing to make it BS6 compliant. They had showcased a turbo petrol version at the Auto expo this year. The Duster will get the 1.3 litre turbo charged petrol engine that is already available internationally. The 1.3 litre turbo unit produces 156 Bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. This will make Duster the most powerful compact SUV in the segment. The naturally aspirated 1.5 litre petrol engine won’t be discontinued and be available in the lower trims
It is one of the most famous full-size SUVs sold in India and this too shall get an engine update when BS6 norms kick in. It is currently available with a 3.2 litre turbocharged and 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel engines and making them BS6 compliant will make the Endeavour ore expensive than it is right now. As an alternative, Ford will introduce a 2.0 litre bi-turbo diesel engine that will replace the existing engine and keep the pricing in check. The new engine is capable of producing 210 Bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque.
At the Auto Expo, Mahindra announced their new range of turbo petrol engines which will be made available in the future Mahindra models. One such car that would get the new mStallion series of engine is the XUV300. Mahindra had showcased XUV300 Sportz at the expo that would be launched in the market later this year. It gets a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine that produces 130 Ps of power and 230 Nm of torque, which is more than what the regular XUV300 currently produces. This update would make XUV300 most powerful sub-4 meter SUV in the segment.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza Petrol
Maruti Suzuki had unveiled the all-new Brezza with a petrol engine at the expo this year. Maruti had earlier announced that they will discontinue the 1.3 litre diesel engines on their models when BS6 emission norms come into effect. As a result of that Brezza gets a new petrol engine. The 1.5 litre petrol engine is the same that we have seen in Ciaz, Ertiga and XL6. The engine is capable of producing 104 Bhp and 138 Nm of torque which is more than what the 1.3 litre diesel unit used to produce.
