A recently leaked certification document has confirmed that Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch a bi-fuel version of the Dzire Tour S. According to the information that we have received, the Dzire Tour S CNG will be priced at Rs. 5.97 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). 

Moreover, the production of the Tour S CNG is already underway, but dispatches will start in the second half of April 2018 once the current stock of the petrol variants is cleared. The CNG model will be available in at least three colour options - Pearl Metallic Arctic White, Metallic Silky Silver and Midnight Black.

As per the earlier leaked certificate, the Dzire Tour S CNG will be based on the previous generation of the compact sedan with identical dimensions. It measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,695 mm in width and 1,555 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,430 mm. The car will be powered by a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine, which has been tuned to run on CNG as well. On petrol, the engine produces 83 BHP @ 6,000 rpm while on CNG, the overall output drops to 70.4 BHP and it comes paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
