An in-depth look at one of India’s best modified Tata Altroz hatchbacks

Tata launched their first ever premium hatchback Altroz in the market, last year. It competes with the likes of Hyundai i20, Maruti Baleno, Volkswagen Polo, Honda Jazz in the segment. Tata Altroz caught buyers attention for its unique looks, attractive pricing and build quality. It is currently the only vehicle in the segment to get a 5 star rating in the Global NCAP crash test. Since its launch, we have seen several examples of modified Altroz across the country. Here we have a video that shows how one of India’s best modified Tata Altroz looks like.

The video has been uploaded by Motor Garage on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vloggers takes us on a walkaround video of the Altroz and also shows all the modifications made to the hatchback. Vlogger starts with the front of the car. This is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol Altroz which is available with a manual gearbox option.

Owner of this Tata Altroz has made subtle changes or modifications to the exterior to elevate the look of the car. All the chrome elements on the car have been blacked out. The chrome strip running under the headlamps now get s a black wrap. The lower part of the bumper gets a lip spoiler in carbon fiber finish. The red colour looks good on the hatchback and black wraps at places gives it a sporty look.

Moving to the side profile, the company fitted wheels on this Altroz were removed and were replaced with a 17 inch aftermarket alloy wheels. It even gets a different type of lug nut on it. Apart from that, there are no other modifications done to the car on the side profile. The roof on this Tata Altroz has also been blacked out. Moving to the rear, the Tata badge at the rear has been blacked out and there are several mini shrk fin antenna shaped garnishes installed on the roof mounted spoiler. The car is also installed with an aftermarket exhaust for a sporty exhaust note.

On the inside, no major customisations have been done to the car. The fabric seats on the Altroz now get a black leather like seat cover with red accents at places. It is matching with the exterior look of the car. This is probably a top-end trim variant and it comes with all the features like ambient lighting, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment screen, climate control AC with it. Overall, the car looks pretty neat with all these modifications in place.
