The hatchback sold 7,378 units which is an increase of 11.79 percent when compared to December 2020 sales which were 6,600 units. Here is Tata Altroz’s XE variant that has been modified extensively. The premium hatchback does look very unique. The video has been uploaded by 47 Nation on their YouTube channel.
The owner says that he chose the base variant of the Altroz because he wanted to do customize it according to his preference. Choosing a higher variant would mean that it would come with alloy wheels which he did not need and it would just be an additional cost. At the front, we can see that the headlamps have been given a smoked effect. The lower chrome beltline that runs below the grille has been finished in piano black which extends till the headlamps. Due to which it looks like the headlamps and grille is a single piece. There is also a slim LED Daytime Running Lamp that runs just above the headlamp which costed him Rs. 600. The DRL also works as a turn indicator. Because it is a base variant, it does not come with fog lamps and the vlogger says that it can be replaced for an after-market foglamp unit. The premium hatchback is also equipped with an aggressive front splitter which costs Rs. 3,500 and come in gloss black, carbon fibre finish and matte finish. The owner wanted the splitter to have the same colour as the paint of the hatchback which costed him Rs. 1,000. Overall, the front of the Altroz does look very aggressive because of the blacked-out elements that go very well with the white paint job of the hatchback.
