For city driving in a fast city like Delhi, I d prefer the 1.2.
If you can stretch your budget to the 1.2 Kappa i10, take that, as the drop in power on CNG is not so significant with the 1.2 engine. Make sure you get a good sequential CNG kit fitted by the dealer.
There is a small little catch here. The Kappa motor needs a sequential CNG kit. The 1.1 iRDE works fine on a conventional kit as well. So if you are on a tight budget or do not want to spend much on the conversion, you might as well opt for the smaller engine.
thanks to all and also want to know mileage with sequential CNG kit in city drive.
Expect 20km/kg with AC on either kit, .
Dear Satendra Kumar, you have asked this question a couple of days back. Please check this link to know the answers of experts http://www.cartoq.com/questions/i-want-to-buy-a-petrol-car-below/
Build quality – I will suggest Brio above everything else in that price bracket! Excellent car with enough power for long drives, especially on highways. Great to drive, even if you are a bit of an enthusiast driver. Figo is another option, as it has a bit more space. Brio, though, CNG is a bit unclear at the moment as the car is too new and…[Read more]
i will suggest u maruti wagon r..this is superior hatchback bless with mileage of 15 kmpl in city conditions and 19 kmpl on highways, The CNG variant of new Wagon R is capable to deliver mileage of 21 kmpl in city conditions and to 24 kmpl on highways.The new Maruti Wagon R is available in the price bracket of Rs. 3.5* lakhs – Rs. 4.5* lakhs…[Read more]
Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i10 and Maruti Suzuki Wagon R are the three cars I can think of. But, Wagon R is the best choice for it may not have luxury interiors but has durable quality, is backed by reliable sales and service network and can also be fitted with CNG kit at a later stage.
I would suggest looking at the Hyundai i10, 1.2 Magna or may be even the Sportz. The interiors of the i10 feel quite upmarket. It can also take a CNG kit easily.
Hmmm – the car I want to suggest is the Honda Brio. It fits in your budget, no question at all about quality, Honda brand and reliability etc. It is petrol and has lots of power, so even if you lose a bit of power after CNG conversion, it will still be quite powerful. On the other hand, it is very new – so we dont know if there are any problems…[Read more]
Brio with CNG – only one small issue: With the fully transparent hatch, you can see the CNG cylinder at all times
My CNGwaala always says the CNG is not very successful on the Kappa engine i10 or i20. I say Beat or Brio. Gas is a success on both cars. You can only fit a 60 liter tank in the Brio but that gets hidden under the parcel tray so it wont really be visible unless you are actually looking for it. Pick the Beat if you wont supercool looks and a lot of…[Read more]
Beat and Wagon R. Go for company fitted CNG kit car. Honda would void your warranty after CNG kit.
I 10 anytime or beat.
Thank You very much for Your valuable Suggestions
