Tata launched the Tata Tiago CNG and the Tigor CNG in the Indian market recently and the buyers now have an option to buy feature-rich and safe CNG cars. While the Tata Tigor CNG is one of the few options for the buyers, the Tata Tiago CNG on the other hand faces stiff competition from the rivals like the Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Hyundai Santro, Maruti Suzuki Celerio, etc. If you are also planning to buy the new Tiago CNG soon, chances are high that you would be comparing it to the above-mentioned rivals Having said this, here is a quick Tata Tiago CNG Vs Maruti Suzuki WagonR CNG comparison that will help you understand better.
Dimensions And Design
The Tata Tiago has always been a great looking hatchback and commands a strong road presence with its elegant and bold design language. With the launch of the new CNG iteration, the Tiago now gets projectors headlamps, a new chrome grille, LED DRLs, new fog lamp trims, chrome door handles, and a chrome strip on the tailgate. In addition to this, Tata it’s also offering stylized R14 wheels with the Tiago. Having said this, the Tata Tiago definitely has an edge over the WagonR CNG when it comes to the build quality and overall road presence.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR CNG on the other hand continues to offer the tall-boy design to the buyers. Upfront, the car gets big bold headlamps with a subtle grille in the centre. The side profile too reflects the same tall-boy concept but it is the rear that looks rather busy with those long vertical tail-lights. The WagonR is not only taller than the Tiago but also boasts a longer wheelbase. Having said this, a quick dimension comparison is given below in the table:
