CNG is considered a cleaner and greener fuel compared to petrol and diesel. Also, CNG offers better mileage than petrol and diesel. This eventually results in more cost efficiency for the CNG car owners.

In terms of design, the Dzire CNG is the same as its petrol-powered variant. The only change is the addition of the factory fit CNG kit in the boot storage. The CNG kit works with the 1.2-litre K-Series dual-jet dual VVT petrol engine. This engine is in CNG mode and churns out 77 PS of power at 6,000 rpm and 98.5 Nm of torque. Also, it returns 31.12 km/kg mileage as well.

Speaking about the launch of Dzire CNG, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said that with transformative technology like the S-CNG, more and more customers are actively looking to switch to S-CNG vehicles to fulfill their mobility requirements.

"Today, we have the largest portfolio of 9 green S-CNG vehicles. With low running costs and high fuel efficiency of S-CNG vehicles, their demand has tremendously gone up as we have witnessed a 19% CAGR increase in our S-CNG sales in the past five years. This is a testimony that customers are increasingly embracing technologically advanced, eco-friendly, factory-fitted and safe Maruti Suzuki S-CNG vehicles," he said.
