The New Tavera Neo 3 BS-IV is compatible with the new BS-IV emission norms of the country applicable since April 2010. In a bid to shelve the car competitively in the Indian auto market, the company has offered the car in the price segment of Rs 7.51lakh. It is to be noted here that GM India has already rolled-out the BS-III compatible version of the Tavera Neo 3 model in the country last month with a starting Chevrolet Tavera Price tag of Rs 6.72 lakh. The new BSIV Neo 3 is offered in only 4 variants in India.

The Neo 3 BSIV model will come powered by a 2.0L TCDi diesel engine to which the company has sourced from ICML (International Cars & Motors Ltd). The powerful engine of the car is capable of generating a peak output of 106.8 PS at 4000 rpm along with a massive torque of 263.7 Nm at 1750-2500 rpm. Moreover, the new Tavera is claimed to be delivering very good mileage of 12.26 km per liter.
Besides a new engine, the New Tavera Neo 3 BS-IV is carrying a number of cosmetic changes including a fascinating dual tone color theme at the exterior along with a dual tone front bumper.
Inside, the major changes include attractive ‘Ice Blue’ illumination in combination with new dual texture theme, an all new 3-spoke stylish steering wheel and a 1Din music system. Other new features of the car include a dual lockable glove box. Also, the newly designed central console now comes with a power outlet and dead pedal and arm rest for front & second row.
Apart from this new launch, the auto firm has confirmed to launch more new cars in India that includes Chevrolet Sail hatchback, Chevrolet Enjoy, Chevrolet Sail Sedan, New Chevrolet Captiva and New Chevrolet Cruze. Among these beautiful hot wheels, the Sail is on the priority list of the General Motors, as per the media speculation. At the same time, we should not forget the Union Budget’s major highlight that put around 2 per cent hike in the excise duty on cars in India. Right after the 2012 Budget, a few car manufactures have announced to raise the cost of their cars and GM will not be an exception since it also has to pay the increased value to the government.
