The MUV market is lately seeing a lot of action from different manufacturers. First Mahindra refreshed the king of segment Bolero and added more creature comforts to the proposition. Then, we saw some spy images of the soon-to-be-launched Tata Sumo Gold (a facelifted Sumo). However, we never heard from the third popular rival – Chevrolet Tavera – i.e until now.
GM India confirmed to Indian Autos Blog long back that it is in the process of revamping the long forgotten Tavera. We were the first to bring you details on the mechanicals, the list of cosmetic changes, but we didn't know how it would look.
But thanks to Motorbeam.com, the puzzle is complete!
GM India is not only considering to make the Tavera’s engine BS4 compliant but is also giving a small facelift before the actual launch.
And by ‘a small facelift’ we really mean a very tiny one. The spyshot only unveils a new crystal clear headlamps and a wider grill for the Tavera. They could possibly make minor changes to the tail lamps as well. The engine, of course, will be a major change for the new Tavera. It will be BS4 compliant, 2.0-liter, 100 bhp common rail diesel motor that will be sourced from ICML, the makers of the Rhino MUV.
GM India told IAB that the Tavera facelift will be launched in the last quarter of 2011.
Do you think the facelifted Tavera is game enough for the Mahindra Bolero and Tata Sumo Gold?
