The Maruti Dzire CNG Tour S variant will launch in India soon. This is, obviously, the bi-fuel derivative of the ‘Tour S’ taxi variant of the second-generation Dzire and a spiritual successor to the 1st generation Dzire tour. The car’s specification have been leaked online by the folks at Indianautosblog.
|Price||Rs. 5.50 lakhs|
|Launch date||Mid 2018|
Coming to its specifications, the new Maruti DZire CNG is powered by a 1.2-litre flex-fuel engine capable of running on petrol and CNG. It can produce 62 kW (84 PS) at 6,000 rpm, running on petrol but the power reduces to 52.5 kW (75 PS) in CNG mode. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. Like the standard model, top speed is likely to be limited to 80 kmph.
Power figures are lower than the those offered by the familiar 1.2-litre petrol (82 PS) and 1.3-litre diesel (75 PS) engines on the non-CNG variants.
