I doubt it. CNG kit will definitely add weight, but fatter and higher tire may not do the trick. The issue here is the leaf spring suspension. If tires are soft, it will eat up lot of potholes without transferring much to suspension, but that also calls for higher fuel consumption. A well filled tire may still transfer shocks to suspension. Also the backache problem is more for the back benchers, and very less for the front 2 passengers.
Now coming to your requirement, you want higher ground clearance (GC), comfort, long run(so good FE I suppose), and budget is 1.5 lakhs -- I doubt you will get all buddy. The best option that comes to my mind is older generation bolero / sumo.. for comfort may be old palio / esteem / santro
Thanks for calling him up man :)
that was really nice of you
well i think il chuck lancer out for now
il have to find out
if they are available in Bombay !
i really was looking for ward to the lancer though !
we had A sumo before and it almost toppled twice in karjat :(

it will be fitted with a Cng gas
