GM India have launched the Tavera Neo3 BS IV today. The BS3 version of the Neo3 was launched some time back. The MUV, in its face lifted avatar gets a heart transplant too, and being BS IV compliant now, can be sold in all the cities in India, including the bigger metros.
The biggest change on the MUV is the all-new Sonalika sourced 2.0-litre Tcdi direct injection diesel engine good for 105bhp of power and 262 Nm of torque. The engine is mated with a 5-speed transmission. Apart from being more powerful, the new engine is expected to be more refined as well.
The Neo3 variant of the Tavera features the signature Chevrolet twin-port grille and also boasts a bigger Chevrolet bowtie, both in the front and at the back. The headlamps have been stretched, and the clear lens unit has integrated blinkers. The body is now painted in two-tone shades, with a golden hue available in combination with select colors. Other changes include graphics on body sides, chrome garnished front grille and new fog lamp housings. Designers have also added a fresh new design for the wheel covers.
On the inside, the Tavera Neo 3 now has a more upmarket feel. The interior has been done in a beige and dark grey combination. The upholstery material has been upgraded with soft-feel upholstery with specially designed inserts. Perforated leather upholstery is available as an option on the Captain Seat variants. The instrument cluster is blue backlit and the new two-tone colour scheme gives a refreshed look to the interior. There is also a dead pedal in place now for a more comfortable cruising experience on open highways.
“GM engineers carried out an extensive upgrade of the popular Tavera based on customer feedback,” said GM India President and Managing Director Lowell Paddock. “The result is a stylish yet durable vehicle that is perfectly suited for personal & business use.”
