For long, Celerio and Tiago have been fierce rivals in the Indian car market with both models performing well and striking a chord with prospective buyers. While Tata Motors launched the Tiago NRG with some very attractive cosmetic updates last year, Maruti Suzuki also brought out the refreshed Celerio last year in order to wow a younger car-buying audience. What is perhaps most interesting though is that both Celerio and the Tiago now also have the CNG option available.

While Maruti has been betting big on CNG technology and offers S-CNG company-fitted kits on a number of its models, Tata Motors entered the fray earlier this year by bringing CNG to Tiago and Tigor sedan. Both companies clearly see a rising demand for vehicles with factory-fitted CNG and believe that with the rise in the number of CNG pumps, the popularity of such vehicles would only grow.

Both vehicles have a similar-sized CNG tank.

Celerio CNG vs Tiago CNG - Features

Since Celerio CNG is only offered in the VXi trim, it gets features like reverse parking sensors, front and back power windows, power-adjustable ORVMs, among others.

Because Tiago CNG is offered on a number of trims, it obviously gets more features in the higher trims like LED DRLs, powered ORVMs, reverse camera, rear defogger.
