The current situation is tough. The fuel prices are rising with each new day and at the same time, travelling in public transport remains a safety issue for the majority of the people. This has lead to a sudden increase in demands of cars in our country. While people still worry about rising fuel prices, CNG has emerged as a good option for many. Today, we have a look at the cheapest CNG hatchbacks available in India so that you can go ahead and buy them to travel without any hassle while the pandemic still persists.
Maruti Suzuki Alto 800
Maruti Alto has been the segment leader in terms of sales for ages. Alto 800, the successor has taken forward the legacy really well. Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 comes with a factory-fitted S-CNG kit. Maruti’s S-CNG technology has gained immense popularity in India therefore, Maruti has incorporated this technology in more and more cars in India.
Maruti Alto 800 LXi CNG has a price tag of ₹4.78 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). S-CNG is also equipped in the LXi(O) variant which has a price tag of ₹4.82Lakhs ex-showroom.
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso
MSIL showcased the S-Presso CNG in the Auto Expo 2020. Now that it has already been launched in the Indian market, competitors like the Renault Kwid are really afraid! The only reason is the availability of CNG which fulfils the needs of the modern public to the fullest. With Maruti’s trusted S-CNG technology, the S-Presso forms the second one on our list of cheapest CNG hatchbacks in India! The starting price of S-Presso CNG in the Indian market is ₹4.84Lakh for the LXi variant.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR
The one who needs no introduction! Maruti Suzuki WagonR has been ruling the hearts of the masses, especially in its CNG form. Not only the private owners, but the fleet owners love the WagonR. We all have used Ola/Uber and have seen how dense the WagonR population is! The only thing WagonR’s CNG variant lacks is features. Otherwise, it is a beautiful family car with excellent efficiency. WagonR LXi CNG comes at an ex-showroom price of ₹5.25Lakhs!
Maruti Suzuki Celerio / Tour H2
Celerio is another hatch from our favourite automaker that develops CNG cars in India. Maruti Suzuki Celerio has got a fleet specific sibling by the name of Tour H2 which is also a CNG fitted variant but lacks some common features. Maruti has carefully put in what was necessary on the fleet variant. The feature-loaded Celerio VXi CNG has an ex-showroom price of ₹5,60,900 whereas the Tour H2 CNG has a price of ₹4.81Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Another brand who tried their hand at manufacturing CNG vehicles in India. Hyundai Santro was launched in the CNG variant in India in 2019. Hyundai Santro CNG comes in two variants – Magna & Sportz. While Santro Magna CNG has got all the basic features that you want but if you still want some more, Santro Sportz CNG is the perfect pick for you. Hyundai Santro Manga CNG comes at an ex-showroom price of ₹6.8Lakhs.
Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS
Another one from the Korean automaker. Realising the growing popularity of CNG in India, Hyundai launched a CNG variant with the Grand i10 NIOS too. The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS is a fun to drive hatch and comes with a turbocharged engine as well (not in the CNG variant of course). The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS Magna CNG comes with a price tag of ₹6,64,000/-. You can also go for a higher Sportz variant in the i10 NIOS lineup.
