ZW-Tiago-WagonR-Santro-Celerio

The Tata Tiago CNG is the latest entrant in the CNG space that's slowly gaining momentum in the country. Apart from the fact that it's cleaner and better for the environment, there's yet another USP to the Tiago CNG; it's available in a fully loaded trim.

But how do its specifications and features compare to its popular rivals, the CNG variants of the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Celerio, and the Hyundai Santro

We find out exactly that in this detailed on-paper comparison.

The Tiago has the largest engine in this comparo and, consequently, is the most powerful on paper. The Maruti Celerio is the least powerful, while the Wagon R makes the least torque. The Santro is second in terms of power and is the only model in this test to boast a four-cylinder mill.

As standard, all CNG models in this test get a 5-speed manual transmission. They also get a 60-litre CNG tank, which brings us to the efficiency angle.

Clearly, the most powerful Tiago is the least fuel-efficient, while the Celerio beats the others in this department.

ZW-Tata-Tiago-CNG

  • Since the Tiago CNG is offered in the top-spec trim, it gets all the bells and whistles, including a touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, keyless entry, rear wash and wipers, and projector headlights with DRLs. 

  • The Santro Sportz Executive comes second (in terms of features), after the Tiago. 

  • Since the Wagon R and Celerio's CNG kits are limited to their lower-level trims, they get just the essentials and nothing else.

Save for the Celerio CNG (that’s available in a sole mid-spec trim), all other CNG variants have similar starting prices. The Wagon R CNG is offered only in the base trim, probably not to eat into the sales of the Celerio. Hyundai offers the Santro in two trims which are priced similarly to the Tiago’s first two trims. 

The Tiago CNG does have the upper hand here as it’s offered in multiple trims at varying price points. This gives it an advantage over its rivals as you can get a fully loaded trim right from the factory.
