With BS6 norms getting implemented in India, many cars had to discontinue their diesel variant. If in today’s scenario the same cars were to get a BS6 compliant diesel engine the story would be different for them for sure. In this article, we discuss our five-car of choice that would sell better if they get a diesel engine.

Renault Duster

Renault Duster

Previously Renault Duster was available in a diesel variant with a 4×4 variant. The car was a flagship product for Renault. Duster was one of the first cars in the compact SUV segment. The 4×4 ability made it a proper SUV for car enthusiasts. Since it’s been a long time Duster has got any update or a new generation coming up. A Duster with a diesel engine with a 4×4 option could definitely work in favor of Renault and help them get more sales from duster. Renault managed to sell 153 units of Duster in August 2021.


Maruti Vitara Brezza

Maruti was selling more units of Brezza when they had the diesel variant as LDI, VDI, and ZDI.  The VDI and ZDI variants were available in automatic transmission options along with a manual transmission while the LDI was a base variant with just a manual transmission. A lack of diesel has somewhere impacted the sales figures for Brezza. If Maruti Suzuki could work on getting a BS6 compliant diesel engine for Brezza this could give a good push in terms of sales for the car that already does good numbers.
