But Tata ensured that the ground clearance is not affected much. The unladen ground clearance of Tiago iCNG is 168 mm whereas Tigor iCNG’s ground clearance is 165 mm.

On the additional safety front for the iCNG Tata models, the company has fitted the vehicles with a leak detection feature, high-quality stainless steel, rust and corrosion materials.

Moreover, the car won’t start if the fuel lid is open. The iCNG vehicles can also be started in CNG mode which other CNG vehicles cannot do.
