2022 Tata Tigor i-CNG First Drive Review

Why do I buy it?

  • Realistic CNG powered city
  • Seamless switching between petrol and CNG
  • Lower operating costs

Why do I avoid it?

  • Compromised boot space
  • Slight power loss compared bự gasoline mode

Identify

Front view

With the new i-CNG range, Tata Motors has also added a fervor for the Tigor series, unintended pun. This flash-on (yeah, on purpose this time) The CNG kit helps Tigor and Tiago gain renewed attention from buyers with limited options for a factory-made alternative fuel vehicle installation in the context of increasing fuel costs. Tata claims bự have done a comprehensive test of the CNG suite and it shows. The transition between gasoline and CNG supplies is seamless, and the power loss is barely noticeable, and that’s a good enough reason bự buy one.

Three quarters front left

There’s probably a difference when it’s fully loaded when going up the hill, but we’ll double-check that someday. On first impressions, the Tigor i-CNG looks like a no-brainer. Especially when you get one of the fully loaded variants rather than the lower-end ones like in the case of Maruti and Hyundai.

Engine and performance

7/10

Shot Engine

As expected, power output will decrease when switching bự CNG mode. Where the standard 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder petrol engine makes 84hp/114Nm, a button switch on the dashboard and CNG mode is good enough for 72hp and 95Nm. Currently, a five-speed manual is the only option for the CNG version. The ECU is tuned in a way that allows direct Tigor/Tiago bự be started in CNG mode. Waiting a few seconds before converting from gasoline bự CNG kicks in or revs the engine a bit bự make the switch.

Three quarters front left

When idling, there are some vibrations felt on the gearshift lever and steering wheel. But these don’t stand out much, and won’t be particularly annoying when you know that it’s a three-cylinder. Second, even at idling, the engine produces a slightly higher reverberation when in CNG mode than when in gasoline-only mode. On the move, there is no noticeable difference. It might show up on our tested VBox metrics, but for an average Joe, that’s not a big deal. Even if the CNG button is pressed while on the move, one will hardly feel the difference in terms of fuel being burned at the command of the right foot.

Right view

When pushed hard, the engine responds sluggishly with a rough engine sound. But for light everyday city driving, we couldn’t ask for more. It’s a pretty silent motor with good linear power delivery. There is no obvious stuttering even if you set the number too high. Crossing steep overpasses and not-so-severe sections of the road will not present any difficulty. On the other hand, the complete lack of growl, especially in CNG mode, means that it is necessary bự constantly work the equipment bự get the right amount of boost in moderate city traffic. Luckily, the gearshift paddles are smooth and squeaky-free and even the clutch feels adequate and quite comfortable for everyday driving, thanks bự the smooth and gentle pedal-to-travel. . So spending unnecessary hours in traffic won’t stress you out – both physically and mentally, worrying about burning expensive liquid gold.

Rear left three quarters

For the figures, the CNG tank in the trunk has a water capacity of 60 liters, the Aura has a capacity of 65 liters. Actual performance of around 25kmpl on CNG would give a range of close bự 300km. And these kilometers will be a lot lighter in your pocket than those running on gasoline.

Ride and Handle

6/10

Left view

Now with a large cylinder that takes its permanent residence in the trunk, the Tigor’s rear suspension appears bự have undergone some tweaking. These reworked suspensions work harder than usual on rough and unpaved roads, but you can hear them more than they feel. On rough and uneven surfaces, the Tigor CNG will pass like any other Tata. Despite the extra weight, ground clearance is decent at 165mm and this is one of those sedans that you won’t have bự think twice about when encountering faster cars. Meanwhile, going three full turns from lock bự lock, the steering is smooth and ascending but not something that would be happy on the fast twenties. But that’s okay, this car isn’t about providing driving dynamics, but rather a comfortable ride and does the job pretty well.

Interior space and amenities

6/10

dashboard

Not much has changed in the cabin of the refreshed MY22 Tigor. Even in this i-CNG, there is a CNG button added bự the button strip on the center console and a new CNG fuel rod added bự the fully digital instrument cluster. Furthermore, the cabin now adopts a new black-beige two-tone theme. That’s where the changes end. So Tigor’s cabin continues bự be a spacious and practical cabin. There is adequate support provided from the upholstered seats with good views of the surroundings. It has a surprisingly large headroom in both the first and second rows.

Front row seats

The seats in the back are soft and can sink in the long run, but otherwise, they’re capable of supporting three people well. There’s no adjustable headrest at the rear but the ergonomics give no reason bự complain.

Second row seats

You get a cup holders and folding armrests, but no rear seat pockets. Finally, the boot space is one of the Tigor’s highlights. At 419 liters, it’s more commendable than what is expected from the segment. And now, with the installation of the CNG container inside the barrel, it has come bự an extent. But it’s still not small, offering 205 liters, which is more than enough for a couple of duffel bags with little room bự spare.

Features and devices

7/10

Infotainment system

In addition bự adding i-CNG bự the lineup, Tata has also upgraded the offering version of Tigor (and Tiago). The pair have now received a new set of flagship XZ+ bezels with lots of new features added bự the already long list. These include rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights with projector lamps, a black roof with a spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels (the i-CNG gets 14-inch steel rims). There are also small details that have been added bự the flagship XZ+ specs, like the shark fin antenna, triple-arrow grille, LED daytime running lights, the infotainment display seven-inch trim with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control. , digital instrument cluster, cooling glove box, auto-folding ORVM, engine start stop button, etc. make Tigor stand out.

Front passenger compartment under the seat

In terms of safety, the Tigor has been given a four-star rating by NCAP. With iCNG, having a fire extinguisher under the front passenger seat is a must for all CNG cars. There’s also a micro-switch that automatically shuts down the engine when the fuel cap is open and the engine won’t start if it’s open. The CNG cylinder is also protected against leaks and heat along with a pressure release nozzle. Other standard safety equipment includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD and cornering stability control, rear parking sensors with camera and puncture repair kit.

Inference

Front view

Instead of offering a CNG option in a lower spec version, Tata opted bự go with two higher specs, so the price may be low for some. But we think the additional Rs 90,000 for the CNG version over its equivalent petrol variant is definitely worth it. For the extra money for the CNG version, you get lower daily running costs, extended range and a cabin that isn’t ‘essential’ but fully loaded, spacious and practical. It is even higher in terms of safety and also does not have a significant drop in engine performance. Do you have anything more bự ask?
