It has emerged that Hindustan Motors plan to soon launch the BS4 variant of the Ambassador sedan. The Ambassador has been on sale in our market since. . err. . forever and the upcoming BS4 variant would see the sedan continue to soldier on for next few years. The Ambassador, which is the oldest passenger car on sale in country, is most likely to get a new name.

Hindustan Motors recently invited taxi operators in Kolkata to sample the new car at the Uttarpara plant.  An official from a taxi association was quoted as saying “the new vehicle offers higher power and torque, better vehicle control with power steering, improved gradient negotiating capacity, better cooling and overall better driveability with no compromise on fuel consumption.”

The Ambassador is currently being sold in BS3 diesel and BS4 petrol engine variant. The BS3 diesel variants isn’t eligible for being on sale in Tier-I cities. However, the upcoming 1.5 Litre diesel engine would allow the car to go on sale in Tier-I cities also.

It is being said that the upcoming BS4 diesel variant will be more powerful and torque-ier than the current BS3 variant. The car will also have improved fuel economy and better refinement. The car could also come with slight interior changes and higher equipment levels.
