Hello,

CNG Kit is not factory fitted as of now in any of 1.2 Litre K Series Engines by Maruti Suzuki
However - dealers may arrange in fitment of sequential cng kit from authorized cng shops - at around rs 36K to 38K

In terms of benefits - basis your average running - can expect in around 17000 - 18000 as annual fuel savings vis a vis car been driven on Petrol. Even - after considering additional insurance premium and cng filter changes and slight often air filter replacement - can expect in minimum 15K as net savings

The cost incurred on Sequential kit is recoverable within 3rd year and from cost benefit analysis - yes its advisable to put in CNG. Even - would be contribution of yours to environment in choosing alternate fuel

In terms of disadvantage
> You would virtually be left with Zero Boot Space
> Power Pickup levels would be impacted to extent of around 15% - the difference is observant when you try to overtake vehicles
> If your car has any extended warranty - it would be void
> CNG Availability is primarily in Delhi and NCR and if you move for long distance travel - it would be Petrol fuel which you would have to use

Hope should help !!
