The Encore’s 1.5-litre diesel engine promises better power and torque, improved gradient negotiating capacity and a ‘smoke issue’ has also been resolved, though HM has not announced the specifications of the engine. In BS3 trim, this engine produces 35.5bhp and 7.44kgm of torque.

Mr. Uttam Bose, Managing Director & CEO, Hindustan Motors Ltd., said: “The company made significant investment in terms of money and man hours to upgrade its BS III 1.5-litre diesel engine to BS IV standards and OBD 2 level.”
