Maruti Suzuki announces upgrade of entire range of vehicles to meet updated Bharat Stage 6 Phase II emissions regulations

India’s passenger vehicle market leader Maruti Suzuki has announced the upgrade of its entire range of vehicles to meet the updated Bharat Stage 6 Phase II emissions regulations.

All Maruti Suzuki hatchbacks, sedans, MPVs, SUVs, and commercial vehicles are now compliant with the new BS6 Phase-II Real Driving Emissions (RDE) regulations, alongside being compatible with E20 fuel as well. 

RDE norms came into effect in India on April 1, 2023, and it’s part of Bharat Stage 6 Phase II emissions norms. Now all cars have to be tested both on the MIDC (Modified Indian Test Cycle) in the lab as well as in real-world conditions on the road. The two figures are then co-related, by adding a conformity factor.

The new RDE compliant Maruti Suzuki cars feature an enhanced On-board Diagnostics (OBD) system to monitor emission control systems of the car in real-time and will notify drivers in case of any malfunction. The new Maruti Suzuki BS6 Phase II compliant cars have also been given a significant safety update, as the Company has equipped them with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, which is offered across a range of products in Hatchbacks, Sedans, MPVs, and SUVs, as per a press note.

C V Raman, Chief Technical Officer, Maruti Suzuki India said that the Government of India’s drive to incorporate the new BS6 Phase II norms will go a long way in controlling emissions from vehicles over their entire lifespan. He added that during this upgrade, the company also took the opportunity to equip its cars with ESC, a leading safety feature globally. “With this, Maruti Suzuki cars and SUVs are now safer than ever before and better for the environment, as well”,  he added.
