Dear Dr Sahab,

Hi Considering fact that :-
CNG Prices are on rising trend and at records highs at near Rs 90 per Kg - although at first glance looks like taking away entire charm of owning CNG Car. But fact remains that CNG Cars are more fuel efficient as against counterpart Petrol one.

So - With average 10,000 Kms a year drive - and fact that car like Tigor will be near around 18 Km/kg in practical city usage takes running cost to Rs 5 per Km, While a Petrol car will deliver in close to 13 Kmpl taking running cost of Rs 8 per Km - gives you a saving of Rs 30,000 a year in CNG.

Even after factoring in additional insurance premium, upkeep cost in terms of filter change, CNG Cartridge change and at later years CNG hydrostress test and other factors - still on annualised basis savings are to tune of Rs 25,000 a year

But what will lack
> Pretty Limited space in boot after CNG Cylinder Fitment
> Power Delivery on higher speed post 60 Kmph will definite feel mediocre
> Also at times CNG refilling takes time. (most of commercial vehicles are in CNG)

For Factors mentioned
Tata tigor cng positives points i.e sedan +cng + rear sitting comfort + boot+ +looks + safety

Well although rest all are good but Boot Space is strict limited after fitting CNG
and needless to mention other cons where
> Power Delivery
> CNG Refilling Time
> Upfront Price Differential + Interest Outflow

and last minor niggles are something which cant be ruled out.
So - if you considering Value for Money and even better fuel efficient car like Ignis
Maruti Ignis Sigma as rightly specified about
> Refinement
> Mileage
> Pricing
> Trust

is an excellent choice
But safety, rear looks and rear seating space is limited and for same if you want a jack of all then strong recommendation to consider in Tata Punch Pure Rhythm or Punch Pure Edition
> 5 Star Build Quality even more safer than Tigor
> Much Better in looks perspective as against both Tigor and Ignis
> Rear Seating Comfort with legroom, ingress, egress feels better than Nexon too - you will be surprised to see ingress, egress as the best
> In Features has better features against Ignis Sigma - you get AC, Power Steering, Front Power Window, Manual Central Lock, Music System, Steering Mount Control
> Highway Stability in 15 Inch Wheels with wider R15 185/70 Tyre feels lot better

and by all standards is great fun to drive, safe car with all essential features yet in a price which is not too steep - with 5 yr Warranty and zero dep insurance (if bought online or negotiate dealer discounts) will cost around Rs 7.5 Lakh On road price in Mumbai

Suggest to check it out as jack of all as best value pick car we have.

Dear Sir, Very well Very well said about TATA PUNCH , Please also let us know the PRACTICAL MILEAGE OF PUNCH IN CITY AND ON HIGHWAYS WOULD BE HIGLY OBLIGE FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE THANKS WITH BEST REGARDS DEEPAK AIREN

I am confused in between Desire ( LXI ) AND Tigor ( XE ) & PUNCH I LOVE THE MOST ONLY MILEGE IS THE CONCERN MY RUNNING MONTHLY UNDER 800 KMS ONLY , IF MILEAGE WOULD BE HIGHER THEN 20 KM / LITER THEN I MAY PLAN FOR LONG TRIPS AS WELL
