Tata Altroz iCNG – What you should know!
From the outside, there is no difference in the visual appeal between the petrol variant and iCNG variant except it only gets the iCNG badging at the tailgate. In the boot, Tata has reworked the boot by removing the spare wheel, making space to fit the two CNG cylinders of 30 litres each retaining the boot space. From the inside, nothing has changed except now it gets digital instrument cluster. Other than that, it has the 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, wireless charger, Air Purifier, automatic headlamps, and many more.
There is also separate fuel bar in the digital instrument cluster for the CNG level and also shows on which the fuel car is currently on. To switch to CNG, Tata has added a button next to the engine start/stop button, so you can switch to CNG whenever you want. Moreover, Tata Motors offers sunroof in Altroz that can be activated through your voice and is available in three variants – XM+ (S), XZ+ (S), and XZ+ O (S).
