Full List of Discontinued BS4 Cars – 13 Petrol, 16 Diesel engines

Some discontinued BS4 cars are expected to make a comeback with updated BS6 engines at a later date

BS6 emissions standards will kick in from 1 April 2020 and the entire Indian automotive industry is busy updating products to the stringent pollution norms. Almost all major OEMs across different categories have performed a smooth transition to BS6 albeit at a cost. As per the rulebook, no BS4 vehicle can be legally registered in the country post 31 March 2020. For the same reason, various dealerships are offering substantial discounts on their leftover BS4 stock.

While popular names on the market have been updated or upgraded to a new avatar on the occasion, certain models and engines had to be discontinued (especially diesel products). In fact, the axe fell on 13 petrol and 16 diesel engines. Here is the complete list of discontinued BS4 cars and engines:

Starting with the market leader, it is not news that Maruti Suzuki is going the petrol way post BS6 implementation. The demand for diesel engines are still going strong and the same has reflected on the brand’s recent sales reports. The 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol motor had potential but failed to create an interest in the wider market.

Tata Motors has discontinued certain diesel engines but they still have a strong line-up of BS6 diesel models. The brand’s 1.5 Revotorq diesel products, especially the Tata Nexon, find a lot of takers. On the other hand, Hyundai has ditched its BS4 diesel mills for the 1.5-litre unit that powers the Kia Seltos. The South Korean brand’s higher 1.6 petrol unit will be replaced by the 1.5 petrol mill of the Seltos as well.

Ford and Mahindra arguably make some of the best engines on the market; be it petrol or diesel. With the new joint venture between either brand taking shape, India automotive enthusiasts are eagerly looking forward to a range of exciting products in the near future.

On the premium side of the Indian market, Volkswagen Group India (now Skoda Auto Volkswagen India) has also opted a petrol-only BS6 portfolio in the country. The brand has discontinued a range of engines with only the petrol units getting a worthy replacement. The automotive group may introduce BS6-compliant diesel motors in the future if there’s a strong demand. As it happens, a good number of these engines will receive a successor at some point in time, except for Fiat brand which has already left the Indian market while Mitsubishi is nowhere on the map.
