Powering the Fronx CNG is the same 1.2-litre, four-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine. It produces a max power output of 88.50 bhp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque output of 113 Nm at 4,400 rpm. While running on CNG, the power output falls to 76 bhp at 6,000 rpm and torque output is decreased to 98.5Nm at 4,300 rpm. The CNG powertrain comes mated to only a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said “The FRONX S-CNG, with its new-age appeal and dynamic road presence, is aimed at customers who are not only trailblazers at heart but also environmentally conscious. Ever since its introduction at this year’s Auto Expo, the FRONX has received an overwhelming response owing to its sporty design language, advanced powertrain, and premium technology."

He added, “In 2010, we introduced our first CNG-equipped model, and since then, we have sold more than 1.4 million S-CNG vehicles in the country, which is a true testament to our customers’ trust and faith in our technology. We are confident that the FRONX S-CNG will increase the share of S-CNG cars in our overall sales, and further strengthen our green mobility portfolio, now consisting of 15 models which is the best in the industry."
