Tata Altroz is one of India’s most popular premium hatchbacks. It got launched in the market couple of years ago and became popular among buyers for its distinct styling and build quality. It is Tata’s first ever premium hatchback and is also the safest car in the segment. Tata Altroz is a car with modification potentials and we have seen several examples of the same online. We have featured many of them on our website as well. Here we have a video that shows how a lowering springs are installed in a Tata Altroz and the owner shares his experience after installing the same.
The video has been shared by Rahee on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows the process of installing lowering springs in his Tata Altoz hatchback. The vlogger has partially wrapped the car and has also done several other modifications like an aftermarket exhaust and alloy wheels. Altroz has a taller stance in its stock form which looks odd at times, especially from the rear. In order to correct this, owner planned to install lowering springs. For installing the springs, he went to workshop that deals in lowering springs from Cobra brand.
The owner of the workshop explains how these springs are different from others and the advantage. The owner mentions that the lowering springs are not universal units and are specifically made for Tata Altroz. The lowering springs not only enhance the stance of he car but also improve handling. After installing the lowering springs, the front would get 30 mm drop and the rear gets 45 mm drop. This is sufficient to improve the look without bottoming out. He mentions that if the cars are installed with wider rims and tyres, chances of rubbing the tyre against the body of the car are higher after installing the lowering springs.
Vlogger had alloy wheels that were aligned with the fender. The vlogger then starts talking about the installation part. The springs that would be installed in the car also shown in the video. The springs are softer in the edges and harder in the centre which gives a proper ride. In order to install the front springs, the mechanic removed the wheels and stock spring from the car and installed the new springs. The rear springs were installed after lifting the car. It took around one and hour in total to install all four springs and once the car touched the ground, the difference was very evident.
The car now looks a lot more sporty and has also enhanced the look. This is probably the first Tata Altroz in India to get lowering springs. The vlogger even drove the car with three passengers in rear seat to check if it bottoms out at any place or not. The car passed the test successfully. Tata Altroz is available with three engine options in the market. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol, 1.5 turbo diesel engine and a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine. Tata recently introduced Dual-Clutch Automatic transmission for the 1.2 litre naturally aspirated version. All the other engine options are available with manual gearbox option only.
