We will progressively upgrade our entire range with cleaner emissions technology.”

Mahindra’s diesel portfolio has not yet made the transition to BS6, however, the company has promised that it will happen before the emission norms kick in. For the time being though, it’s only the petrol variant of the XUV300 that comes with the BS6 engine.
As per technical details revealed by Mahindra earlier this year, the BS6-compliant 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit is expected to continue to make 110hp with torque output now rated at 190Nm as against the BS4 car’s 200Nm. The carmaker had also revealed details of the remainder of its BS6-compliant range of petrol and diesel engines earlier in the year.
