The updated BS-VI compliant engine, on the other hand, could be offered with a slight increase in power output. We expect the BS-VI version of the diesel engine to produce 187bhp (6bhp increase) while offering the same 420Nm of torque.

The updated engine will continue to be mated to the seven-speed automatic transmission, sourced from Mercedes-Benz.
