The ride quality is incredibly unsettled as-is, but our rowdy racer cabbies take it to an entirely different level of discomfort. It's so bad I've started refusing to go to work on days a Tavera shows up at my doorstep to pick me up.

I partly disagree with you sir. My family owns a 2009 Tavera and it's still going strong at 85k on the odo and I dare say it's as comfortable as a innova but not as planted though. It can cruise all day at 90-110. I myself have driven it to Bangalore(650kms) & Tamil nadu (700+kms)We have a 7 seater version with captain seats and they are supremely comfortable. But I agree with you that cabbies do drive carelessly and make the ride unsettling. But I dare say your opinion is based on poorly driven and maintained taveras. Coming back to topic Tavera is a old school designed car running on leaf springs and needs to be overhauled completely. Revamped and refreshed Tavera wouldn't make sense now.

Default Re: Updated Chevrolet Tavera in the works, will get BSIV engine

Wow, looking at BS-IV engine now in 2016 when BS-VI will be standard in four years time, and competitors moved to BS-IV more than five years back? Why didn't GM think of BS-IV engine when all other manufacturers moved to it? The talk of using Sonalika's engine was around 2010 timeframe and they still haven't done it!

Wonder whether those in charge are really interested in promoting Chevy's business in India.

I am planning to purchase the Tavera for the comforts we got used to with our Qualis. I understand that the platform is a bit dated but it is at a price point that matches my budget.i am considering waiting for the BS IV engine due in Apr or so. Am I making a mistake? Thanks for any input.

2017 Chevrolet Tavera Coming Soon, Will Be Produced At Gujarat Plant.

Contrary to rumors, Gujarat Halol facility will continue to till March 2017 and will also roll out the new 2017 Chevrolet Tavera which has been spied .
the first look at the 2017 Tavera being tested on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. The windshield suggest that the cars are ‘ON TEST’. The car has Gujarat test plates where the Tavera is being built. There are hardly any changes to the car and expect it to comply to all safety and emission norms that are coming in shortly. Despite the fact that the car is eligible to change till 2018-2019 as it is a previously launched vehicle.
