“Tata Motors has recently unveiled the Winger BS6 with its new design language which makes it look more sporty. The van also has a 2.2-litre diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.”
Recently, Tata Motors has surprised everyone with a much more modern Winger van for the 2020 production year. Introduced in 2007, The Tata Winger has been a go to option for anyone searching for an affordable van. A few years ago, it didn’t have any noteworthy updates, but now with the new emission norms in place, the company has introduced the new compliant model. With a 2.2-litre diesel engine, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the all new Tata Winger BS6 is said to make 98hp with 200 Nm of torque. This is the exact figure that Honda produces with its 1.5-litre diesel engine. While there is no confirmation yet if the Winger has gone on sale or not, recently 20 ambulances were donated by Tata Sons for fighting COVID-19 in Mumbai, India.
The Tata Winger can also be ordered in a Staff 12 seater configuration, Winger Skool, and Ambulance variants. While the engine tuning is the same in all the configurations, only the weight, wheelbase and looks can be considered different. Even the ground clearance of 185mm is common to almost all Winger CVs.
In other news, the Tata Hexa in its BS6 form was recently shown at the Auto Expo 2020. It is expected to either have the same 2.2-litre engine as before, or the Fiat-derived 2.0-litre motor. The new variant also boasts the title of having more power. However, it is unclear if Tata will keep the five to six variants of the Hexa or just have two on sale. More details will be out within the next few days.
