Expert`s comment:

All the engines that are made are made compatible with all available grade fuel hence you can go ahead with buying the new car with BS IV norms.

if unleaded fuel is available in your part of India then BSIV is OK, if not then sorry.

No, your car will not suffer engine damage but it may simply run without being BSIV compliant! The emission norms don't have that much to do with engine combustion cycles as they have to do with emission control. So, you won't suffer any damage. All cars are going to be BS4 compliant shortly, but it may take some time for the fuel availability to catch up. Nothing to worry for users, though!
