Most of us love sedans. Be it the comfortable cabin, huge cabin space, large boot space or a host of features they have on offer, sedans are surely a thing to have. The only downside is that most sedans run on petrol or diesel and considering the growing fuel prices, people are not preferring to buy a diesel or petrol car. CNG and electricity are the two alternative fuels available right now in the Indian market. With the growing popularity of CNG, many automakers have started rolling out CNG as a fuel option in their cars. In this article, we will be talking about the cheapest CNG sedans available in India. Some of these are currently on sale while the automakers are still planning to introduce the others.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire
Talking about CNG and the list doesn’t start from an MS? You are ding something wrong for sure. Well starting our list of cheapest CNG sedans in India, we introduce you to the Maruti Suzuki Dzire Tour CNG. With the availability of Maruti Suzuki’s S-CNG, we have already seen the success of this system in the Maruti Suzuki lineup. Sharing the same CNG technology as other Maruti Suzuki cars, the Dzire tour can be your pick for sure. Features? The aftermarket options are always available! The Dzire tour BS6 comes at a starting price of Rs.6.36Lakhs.
Still doubt the aftermarket accessories and want a feature-packed CNG sedan from the showroom itself? Hyundai has got just the right thing for you. The new Hyundai Aura comes with a factory-fitted CNG kit and loads of features. The Aura S-CNG (S is the variant name) comes with loads of features and is the second one on our list of cheapest CNG sedans in India. This one comes with a price tag of Rs.7.28Lakh (ex-showroom).
Hyundai Xcent Prime
For those thinking that Hyundai only provides company fitted CNG in the Aura, you are wrong. There is a cheaper CNG car in the Hyundai lineup too. Just like the Dzire tour, you don’t get many features on this one but the price tag of the Hyundai Xcent Prime makes it a favourable buy for many. The lower variant of the Xcent Prime CNG comes at a starting price of Rs.5.36Lakhs.
We know it’s not the latest generation of the Honda Amaze shown above in the picture. Honda launched the CNG compatible Amaze in 2015 and approved a particular CNG kit to be fitted inside the sedan at dealership levels.
