All set to go on sale later this month, the Tata Tiago iCNG will become a direct rival of the highly popular Maruti WagonR S-CNG
Tata Motors is finally ready to launch the highly awaited CNG variant of the Tiago on January 19. The new model will be marketed as the Tata Tiago iCNG and ahead of the launch, several vloggers have started coming up with detailed walkaround videos of the vehicle. These videos not just provide us a good look at what the car has to offer but also reveal the minute differences between the petrol and the dual-fuel variant.
Bookings for the CNG variants of the Tiago are underway at all authorized Tata Motors dealerships and the new car will be launched alongside the CNG version of the Tigor. Initially, these vehicles were supposed to make their debut in November last year but the acute semiconductor shortage ensued. The two videos we have on this page are of the XM and XT variants while the features of the top-spec XZ variant has been listed out below.
Tata Tiago iCNG Features
Tata Tiago iCNG XZ The top-of-the-line XZ variant will come with projector HED headlamps along with integrated LED DRLs, while the front bumper will feature foglamps. The new car will ride on 16-inch steel wheels that will sport stylish wheel covers. Inside, the car will have a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment unit and a semi-digital instrument cluster. The touch unit will offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and other highlights of the equipment list will include an automatic climate control, flat-bottom multi-functional steering wheel, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and corner stability control. Visually, the CNG version will look similar to the petrol model except for the iCNG badges but the biggest change that one will have to live with is the minimal boot space due to the inclusion of the CNG tank.
Tata Tiago iCNG Specs
As expected, the CNG versions of the Tiago and the Tigor will be powered by the same 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated three-cylinder engine that powers the petrol model. However, the power and torque figures will be reduced for the iCNG version. For the petrol model, the motor pumps out a healthy 85PS along with 113 Nm torques. The exact figures of the CNG version are yet to be disclosed but what’s known is that unlike the petrol vehicle, the new version won’t provide the 5-speed AMT option. Fuel efficiency is expected to be roughly 30 km/kg, which will make it an excellent proposition for those looking for ultra-low running costs.
