General Motors will be launching a facelift of the Tavera soon. The updated Tavera will get some aesthetic changes as well as the addition of a new diesel engine, which will comply with BSIV emission norms. The Tavera was pulled out of BSIV cities as its engine did not comply with the new emission norms. The 2012 Chevrolet Tavera will be powered by a 2.0-liter common rail diesel motor that is sourced from Sonalika. The said motor produces 100 BHP of power and also does duty on the Rhino. We spotted the upgraded Tavera along with the Rhino on test in Manali, where the companies are testing the cold weather durability of the engine. The slight camouflage on the hood of the Tavera suggests the probability of a air scoop in the MPV, which will debut by the end of the year with a slight price hike over the current model.
Update (17/10/2011) – The Chevrolet Tavera Facelift was spotted yet again. This time at Rohtang Pass. Checkout the pictures here.
