Tata Tiago, Tigor CNG: what’s new?
The only new addition on both models is the new twin-cylinder setup that first debuted with the Altroz CNG. We’ve reported before that Tata Motors is planning to add this new tech to the Tiago and Tigor as it has filed a patent for this. Instead of using a single, large 60-litre cylinder in the boot, Tata Motors has split it into two equal halves and packaged it under the boot floor.
With the older setup, the Tiago and Tigor CNG’s boot space was limited to 80 and 205 litres, respectively. With the new setup, the boot space has increased, to be sure, but Tata has not yet mentioned the increased capacity.
While the Altroz and Punch are based on the ALFA platform, which Tata Motors designed with this twin-cylinder tech in mind, the Tiago and Tigor are based on the older X0 platform.
