Bookings for the offering begin today across the company's authorised dealerships nationwide.
Commenting on the Tiago NRG iCNG’s launch, Rajan Amba, Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Care, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles, said, “Since its inception, the Tiago NRG nameplate has received an overwhelming response from our customers. They have been appreciative of its SUV inspired design language, muscular stance, and high ground clearance, cementing its position as the Urban Toughroader. In line with Tata Motors’ ‘New Forever’ brand philosophy of continuously refreshing our portfolio, we are delighted to launch the iCNG avatar of the Tiago NRG. This newest addition to our range will offer our customers with the best of both worlds – a car that is the perfect companion for the Indian terrains and is packed with intelligent technology features for utmost comfort and convenience."
"We are confident that the NRG iCNG will uplift the existing flair of the Tiago NRG and will make it an even more compelling package. It will be India’s first Urban Toughroader CNG that is built for those who want to live life differently. Furthermore, the iCNG technology by Tata Motors has proven its efficiency and ease of use in our Tiago and Tigor lineup and with the Tiago NRG iCNG, we are furthering its superiority to our large customer base," he added further.

Visually, the Tiago NRG iCNG benefits from the additional badging to denote its dual nature. The rugged hatchback continues to benefit from styling updates including the revised bumper with skid plates, roof rails, blacked-out B-pillar, 15-inch steel wheels with new covers, and plastic body cladding. The cabin stays the same and gets features such as a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a cooled glovebox, fabric upholstered seats, Harman sound system, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and more.
The Tata Tiago NRG iCNG arrives in a highly competitive space, especially with the slew of recent launches. The model will compete with the CNG variants of the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Maruti Suzuki Swift in the segment.
