Force Trax will receive a facelift later this year. The updated Trax was recently caught undergoing cold weather tests in Leh. Here is all we know about the facelifted version so far
Among the lesser-popular car manufacturers in India, Force will be one name to make a move in 2019 by launching the facelift version of the Force Trax. The new model is caught being on test on Leh’s road, revealed by a reader of Cartoq. The 2019 Force Trax will be rolled off in months. Earlier in 2018, a Force Trax in mule was also spotted in Pune. However, the upcoming version will be upgraded a bit from what we had already seen in the earlier spy shots.
Some minor updates could be seen throughout the design. Right on the front profile, it is added with bigger headlamps, revised bumper and grille. The revamped plastic cladding element is given to the fenders. Steel wheels with wheel covers are also seen on the recent spy shots. To the rear side, instead of putting tails lamp horizontally, new 2019 Trax will try with vertical-stacked style.

The rear of Force Trax is also revised with minor changes on the tail lights.
What will be the most impressive and note-worthy updates might stay under the bonnet. The current version of the Force Trax on offer is run by a 2.0-litre diesel engine that makes 67bhp and 175Nm. However, this engine might fall short to meet the upcoming emission norms that will come into effect by April 2020. Thus, Force will replace this motor with a BSVI-compliant version.
Besides the BSVI emission regulation, new safety crash test norms of BNVSAP will also demand the Force to improve its safety offers. Possibly, new safety features are also included across the range of the upcoming models, for example, driver airbags, front seatbelt reminder, ABS, rear parking sensor and high-speed warning.
Other from the 2019 Trax MUV, Force is also caught testing the updated version of Gurkha SUV, its most popular product. These updates are essential as the new stringent crash test and emission norms are approaching the industry.
