The BS6-compliant 1.0-litre unit develops 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque, same as the BS4 unit. However, the updated engine is a little less fuel efficient, returning 21.79 kmpl as opposed to the previous 22.5kmpl. Transmission options for this powertrain include a 5-speed manual and AMT.

The CNG version of the 1.0-litre engine develops 59PS of power and 68Nm of torque. It can be had with a 5-speed manual only. Maruti Suzuki hasn’t revealed the BS6-compliant CNG unit’s fuel efficiency yet. It is likely that this powertrain could find its way under the bonnet of the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso CNG which is undergoing testing.

The Ciaz, Ignis and the Alto K10 are now the only petrol Marutis yet to receive the BS6 upgrade. The carmaker will most likely discontinue diesel engines post April 2020 due to the upcoming BS6 emission norms. However, a BS6 diesel Ertiga has been spotted on test, hinting that Maruti could bring back diesel engines.
