2023 Tata Altroz iCNG Review

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Tata has forayed into the premium hatchback CNG segment with the popular Altroz. The 2023 Tata Altroz iCNG comes with an innovative dual cylinder technology that allows the car to have some usable boot space. Further, the spare tyre is mounted under the car allowing a neater packaging which liberated more boot space as well.

Earlier in 2023, Tata had showcased the Altroz CNG at the Auto Expo in Greater Noida. Thanks to twin-cylinder technology, the Altroz CNG uses dual 30-litre cylinders instead of a single larger tank as is the norm. The Indian carmaker has also added CNG specific features like single ECU with seamless shift from petrol to CNG mode or CNG to petrol and first start in CNG. Other safety features include thermal protection, gas leak detection and the engine shut off when refuelling.
