Tata has entered the CNG segment with the new Tiago and this video tests its potential to the fullest with the top speed test with 3 persons onboard.
This Tata Tiago CNG top speed test will blow you away. When one buys a CNG car, it is primarily due to economic reasons to tackle the astronomical fuel prices of petrol and diesel. However, there is a certain performance compromise that one has to make that is an inherent characteristic of a CNG powertrain. But how has Tata been able to achieve such stellar performance even from the CNG powertrain is quite impressive indeed.

Tata Tiago CNG Top Speed
The YouTuber announces at the start of the video that there are 3 people in the car along with some luggage. Also, the AC of the car has been switched off for this test. Finding an empty stretch of highway, the driver accelerates the hatchback. In the first gear, Tiago manages to reach around 44 km/h, while in the second gear, it clocked 85 km/h. The third gear propelled the hatchback to 127 km/h and the fourth gear takes it to around 156 km/h. This represents the tall gearing of the vehicle. Interestingly, even in the 5th gear, the car doesn’t go beyond 160 km/h indicating that the top speed could be limited to this. In the regular version, the car reaches around 190 km/h.
Tata Tiago comes powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated engine that produces 72 hp and 95 Nm of peak power and torque in the CNG version. This engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The claimed mileage of the Tiago CNG is around 26 km/kg. The prices of the Tiago CNG range between Rs 6.09 lakh and Rs 7.64 lakh, ex-showroom. The CNG rivals of the Tiago include Hyundai Santro, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Maruti Celerio and Maruti WagonR.
