Tata opens booking for Altroz iCNG. Check mileage and features. The CNG-powered derivative of the Altroz rivals the likes of the Maruti Baleno and Toyota Glanza CNG
Tata Altroz CNG bookings are open; deliveries are to begin next month
- Altroz iCNG bookings start at Rs. 21,000
- To be offered in four variants
Tata has started taking bookings for the Altroz CNG, which will make its debut at the Auto Expo 2023, at the low price of Rs 21,000 at this time. We anticipate the costs to be disclosed in the upcoming weeks because the deliveries are expected to begin in May 2023.
Tata will offer the CNG powertrain on four variants of the Altroz – XE, XM+, XZ and XZ+. It can be had in four color options, including Opera Blue, Downtown Red, Arcade Grey, and Avenue White. One can also expect the Dark Edition of Altroz CNG in the future.
The 1.2-liter petrol-CNG engine in the Altroz produces 4 PS and 2 Nm greater power than the CNG engines in the Tiago and Tigor. It has a 5-speed manual transmission and is anticipated to have a fuel economy of more than 25 km/kg. The Altroz’s engine will also be started using CNG, much like the other Tata CNG vehicles. The engines of all other CNG vehicles are started with petrol before switching over immediately to CNG.
Dual Cylinder Setup
The Altroz CNG’s dual-cylinder arrangement, which still has a 60-liter capacity but takes up less space than a single huge tank taking up most of the boot, is its most distinguishing feature. We anticipate that the CNG models will have about 200 litres of room in the boot, which is now listed at 345 litres for the hatchback. One of the biggest problems a CNG owner has is boot space, a problem Tata hopes to alleviate with its twin-tank technology.
The seven-inch touchscreen display, linked car technologies, cruise control, push-button start-stop, mood lighting, rain-sensing wipers, twin front airbags, and a rear parking camera will all be available on the CNG versions of the Altroz. The top model will even have leatherette upholstery, something the CNG competitors do not.
The Maruti Baleno and Toyota Glanza CNG models, range in price from Rs. 8.3 lakh to Rs. 9.5 lakh (ex-showroom), compete with the Tata Altroz CNG.
Before announcing pricing for the Altroz iCNG, which is anticipated to happen in the next few days, Tata Motors has begun accepting reservations. The CNG variants will start to arrive in May 2023.
The four variations of the Tata Altroz iCNG are the XE, XM+, XZ, and XZ+. Customers will have a choice between four color options: Avenue White, Downtown Red, Opera Blue, and Arcade Grey. The usual warranty for the CNG variant is three years or 1 lakh km.
Unique characteristics of the new Altroz iCNG include a direct start in CNG mode, twin-cylinder CNG technology (one cylinder with a 30-liter storage capacity per cylinder), a single ECU, and a microswitch to make sure the car is turned off when refuelling. We had the chance to have a closer look at the Altroz CNG in January when it was introduced at the Auto Expo 2023.
Automatic headlights, cruise control, iRA linked car technology, six airbags, rear AC vents, automatic climate control, and a sizable touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are a few noteworthy feature highlights of the Altroz CNG.
The 1.2-liter Revotron petrol engine with a CNG mode will power the Altroz iCNG and be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The vehicle can produce 85 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque in petrol mode, but only 76 horsepower and 97 pound-feet of torque in CNG mode.
