Tata Motors has introduced an innovative upgrade to its popular models, the Tiago hatchback and Tigor sedan, with the launch of the new twin-cylinder iCNG setup.

The new Tata Tiago iCNG and Tigor iCNG come equipped with cutting-edge twin-cylinder technology that replaces the traditional single, large 60-litre CNG cylinder with two equal halves positioned beneath the boot floor. This clever arrangement significantly enhances the available boot space, a welcome improvement for daily commuters seeking both environmental sustainability and practicality.

Starting with the Tata Tiago iCNG, the hatchback is now available in six different variants, each offering a compelling combination of features. The entry-level Tiago iCNG XE is priced at Rs. 6,54,900 (ex-showroom), followed by the XM at Rs. 6,89,900, and the XT at Rs. 7,34,900. The higher-end XZ+ is priced at Rs. 8,09,900, while the XZ+ DT and XT NRG are priced at Rs. 8,19,900 and Rs. 7,64,900, respectively. Additionally, the XZ NRG variant comes in at Rs. 8,09,900 (ex-showroom). With these multiple options, customers can choose the variant that best suits their preferences and budget.

Moving on to the Tata Tigor iCNG, the sedan is available in four different variants, providing a wide range of choices for potential buyers. The Tigor iCNG XM is priced at Rs. 7,79,900 (ex-showroom), followed by the XZ at Rs. 8,19,900. The XZ+ variant is priced at Rs. 8,84,900, while the XZ+ LP comes in at Rs. 8,94,900 (ex-showroom). Like the Tiago, the Tigor iCNG variants are designed to cater to various customer preferences and needs.

In terms of powertrain, both the Tata Tiago and Tigor iCNG models are equipped with the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that is coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox. While running on petrol mode, the engine produces an impressive 86hp of power and 113Nm of peak torque. On the CNG mode, the power output decreases slightly to 73hp, while peak torque stands at 95Nm. This ensures a seamless transition between fuel modes without compromising on performance.
