Tata Motors currently sells Tiago with only petrol engines spread across 10 variants. The price of Tiago start at 5 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to 7.07 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec XZA Plus dual-tone variant.

Tiago is considered as one of the safest hatchbacks in India. The model scored four stars in adult occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection at the Global NCAP crash tests. It offers two airbags as standard safety equipment.

2022 Tiago will be the first of the CNG cars out of Tata Motors stable. The carmaker is also expected to extend its CNG lineup across other models which include Tigor sub-compact sedan, Altroz premium hatchback, Nexon sub-compact SUV among others.

Tata Motors is unlikely to make any major change to the Tiago CNG model from its ICE counterpart. The only noticeable difference between a Tiago petrol and CNG will be a separate iCNG badging. Details about the factory-fitted CNG kit for Tiago is not official yet. However, it is expected to return a mileage of around 30 kms per kg.

Tata Motors is likely to continue with the same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder engine petrol engine under the hood for the CNG-based Tiago as well. The engine, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, is capable of generating maximum output of 85 BHP and 113 Nm of peak torque.

When launched, Tata Tiago CNG models will take on rivals like Maruti WagonR CNG or Hyundai Santro CNG among others.

CNG vehicles in India have seen a significant rise in the ongoing financial year. There was a 56 percent rise in sales of CNG cars till November with 1,36,357 units sold in the last eight months.
