After the Tigor and Tiago, the Altroz is the third offering from the brand to get a CNG version. The Altroz CNG was showcased for the first time in India at the Auto Expo 2023 in Delhi. The car was displayed alongside the Punch CNG and will debut with the brand’s twin CNG cylinder technology. Here are a few things that we know so far about the CNG hatchback.
Tata Altroz CNG variants:
The Altroz CNG will be offered in six variants namely, XE, XM+, XM+(S), XZ, XZ+(S), and XZ+O(S).
At the heart of the Altroz CNG is a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine tuned to produce 76bhp of power and 97Nm of torque and comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. In petrol mode, the same engine produces 87bhp and 113Nm of torque. Tata Motors will not offer the Altroz CNG with automatic transmission options.
The manufacturer has introduced the new twin-cylinder CNG technology to free up luggage space. Here, the spare wheel has been swapped for the two 30-liter cylinders that are placed below the luggage area for a boot space of 210 liters.
Regarding features, the Altroz CNG will be the first CNG hatchback in India to be offered with a sunroof. Besides this, it also gets an electric sunroof with voice assistance, automatic climate control, an air purifier, rain-sensing wipers, an illuminated cooled glove box, ambient lighting, and a reverse camera with sensors.
