Tata Tigor and Tiago AMT CNGs: What’s new?
Powering the Tata Tigor and Tiago CNGs is a 1.2-litre engine that produces a maximum power output of 73hp and 95Nm of torque. In a petrol configuration, this engine churns out a power output of 86hp and 113Nm of torque. Initially available with a 5-speed manual gearbox, Tata has now added a 5-speed AMT gearbox in the mix.
The Tata Tigor and Tiago CNGs get the automaker’s signature split-cylinder design for the CNG tanks. This increases the boot space, giving the cars a significant advantage over their rivals. The two cylinders have an individual capacity of 30 litres. The Punch and Altroz CNGs also employ this design, freeing up to 210 litres of boot space as a result.
Apart from the automatic transmission and increased boot space, Tata Tigor and Tiago CNGs are equipped with a host of intelligent and safety features. The two cars get Single Advanced ECU which ensures effortless and jerk-free shifting between petrol and CNG modes. Both cars can also be directly started in CNG mode, which saves the hassle of switching the mode while driving.
The micro switch in the two cars shuts off the ignition as soon as the fuel lid is open. It can only be restarted when the lid is secured. In case of an unforeseen thermal incident, the iCNG tech on the two cars immediately cuts off the CNG supply to the engine and releases the gas from the cylinder directly into the atmosphere to minimise any risk of inflammation. This tech also detects the minutest of leaks and immediately switches the car from CNG to petrol mode.
Tata Motors has also introduced a Tornado Blue paint shade in the Tiago, Grassland Beige in Tiago NRG and Meteor Bronze in the Tigor. In FY24, Tata Motors registered a 67.9% growth in CNG sales compared to FY23. The Tiago and Tigor are also available in an EV avatar. Prices for Tata Tigor CNG start at Rs 8.20 lakh while the Tiago CNG range starts at Rs 6.55 lakh.
