Upcoming CNG Variants
The company has been testing the Altroz CNG since last year and now it is on the verge of completion, so the company may bring the CNG version with its existing engine option. Tata Motors is about to expand its CNG range. At present, there is not a single model available in the premium hatchback segment, so Altroz could be the winner.
The CNG model of the Tata Altroz has been spotted with emission standard equipment, similar to the Nexon model. The same engine options are given in both the cars, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine, though changes have been made in power and torque. The Altroz is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that is also available in the Tiago and Tigor.
The CNG version of the Altroz can be brought with the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine. This engine produces 110 Bhp of power and 140 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual and 6-speed DCA gearbox. There may be a slight reduction in power on the CNG model, while it comes with a manual gearbox.
Tata Motors’ Altroz has received a great response from the customers and the variant which is less in demand may have been discontinued by the company. The company keeps updating the Altroz premium hatchback constantly, due to which it has been updated.
