The Tata Tiago and Tigor CNG versions would be the first in India CNG cars to have automated trims

Tata Motors has hinted at the arrival of the much-needed automatic Tiago and Tigor CNG models. The introduction of a CNG automated combination to the Indian market might potentially transform the CNG sector and establish a new market trend, as it will be the first of its kind.

Tata Tiago and Tigor CNG Driving Experience

Tata Motors recently gave us a sneak peek with a teaser image, revealing the automatic gear shift lever. This suggests that the CNG versions will soon be equipped with AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) units. This not only makes driving more convenient but also positions the Tiago and Tigor as trailblazers in the world of eco-friendly and automatic transportation.

Tata Tiago and Tigor CNG Design

We believe there will be no design changes, so the 15-inch dual-tone alloy wheels that were part of the upgrades last year will remain on both the Tiago and the Tigor, along with the same new grille, redesigned front and rear bumpers, a new air dam, fog lights, and black ORVMs. The inside will still have a completely digital instrument cluster, auto temperature control, a sleek flat-bottom steering wheel, an engine start-stop button, a cooled glove box, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay.

Powerful Performance with Eco-Friendly Efficiency

Both the Tiago and Tigor CNG variants share a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder naturally aspirated Revotron petrol engine. While the petrol versions boast 85bhp of power and 113Nm of torque, the CNG configuration delivers 72bhp of power and 95Nm of torque. Previously available only with a 5-speed manual transmission, the introduction of automatic variants is expected to bring a new level of convenience to eco-conscious drivers.

Tata may have taken a small step forward with the introduction of the automatic variants, but other manufacturers now have many more opportunities to follow suit. Given the trend of consumers switching to automatic transmissions and the fact that the market is considering other fuel options, strong hybrid engines—which are convenient and fuel-efficient due to their automatic transmissions—already exist. Additionally, the cost of CNG combined with an AMT transmission will be reasonable.
