The BS6 emission norms are stringent, we all know. But these norms were a real pain for the diesel engines as a lot had to be changed in the diesel mills to get then BS6-compliant. Many companies such as Maruti Suzuki and Volkswagen opted to discontinue their diesel engines in the wake of BS6 emission norms. Not only the changes forced them to do so, but an increase in the overall cost was also a major reason. But there were some companies that took on the challenge and kept the diesel engines alive. Here is the list of those BS6 diesel cars in India you can buy right now.
