Most affordable CNG SUVs in India in March 2024

The soaring fuel prices in recent years have resulted in a growth in demand of CNG vehicles. CNG cars are not only cheaper to run as compared to petrol & diesel counterparts, but are also environment friendly. Keeping the growing demand of CNG cars in mind, manufacturers continue to diversify their respective CNG portfolios. Unlike a few years ago, a CNG car buyer does not need to settle for an entry-level, small car. Here’s a list of the most affordable CNG SUVs in India in March 2024.

6. Toyota Hyryder CNG 

Starting price: Rs 13.71 lakh

The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG is essentially the most premium CNG SUV in India, carrying a base price of Rs 13.71 lakh.
