Tata Altroz CNG has an edge over its Maruti rival in at least one aspect. The carmaker's twin-cylinder technology offers two small cylinders, instead of a large one, placed under the luggage compartment. It is fitted in such a way that the boot space is on par with that of ICE counterparts. The Altroz CNG also comes with advanced Single ECU, which is a first in the industry, and features a Direct Start in CNG mode.

Tata Altroz CNG is also slightly more affordable than the Maruti Suzuki Baleno CNG. The starting price for Altroz at 7.55 lakh is about 80,000 less than Baleno CNG's starting price of 8.35 lakh. However, the price of the top-end Baleno CNG variant costs 9.28 lakh, more than 1.25 lakh affordable compared to the top-spec variant of the Altroz CNG.
