Better carpets and a faux wood finish are the talking points of the interiors.

The Evalia facelift which is waiting to be launched receives a revised front grille and a chrome insert on the tailgate. On the inside, the centre console is finished in faux wood and there are new carpets which are claimed to fit better than the current ones. The rest of the vehicle remains the same.

The tried and tested 1.5-litre K9K would continue to motivate the MPV in its 86 PS avatar. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the engine has a peak torque of 200 Nm and returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 19.3 km/l.
