As i could not find out any reviews of CNG cars, therefore i thought of sharing my experience of my New WagonR Green ( its not so new, i got it in Feb 2011). To Start with i must tell you, that we have bought this car for my dad. He is fond of CNG. Since 2001 we had CNG car at home. 1st two were Esteem. Then in 2007 we got our Hyundai Accent fitted with CNG, that was the worst decision i have ever made
, I dont know what the problem was but i had to sell it in 2 yrs.
Now after selling Accent, we left with a Ford Ikon petrol and a 2000 model Esteem CNG and in the mean time i also bought a CityZx. But with the starting of the New year 2011, i forced my Dad to sell Esteem CNG. Now the question was what we need to buy , as we were only left with two PETROL cars. And not to mention my cars are used so much esp. CNG that Petrol is really not a good Decision.
The Search Process was already started, My Dad has no interest in cars, so i alone had to do all the findings. I asked my dad, about budget he said strictly under 5 Lacs. Now with the budget fixed, i started searching. First we thought of going for a Second hand Honda and fitting CNG in that, but after experiencing Accent, it was a straight No from my side. Then i went to MS showroom and test drive a WagonR (P) as no Cng were available for a TD. As soon as i entered in the car i found it so airy from inside, as space between my head and roof was enormous (i am 6ft tall). i felt it maybe because i was used to sedans.
When i went to showroom i found that Cng is only available in Lxi, I must say the interiors of Vxi esp the integrated music player was looking awesome. We booked the Lxi CNG immediately with the integrated music system and two front speakers.
