Altroz 2

The all-new Tata Altroz will be available in five variants. There are two engine options and a long list of features. The variants are named as XE, XM, XT, XZ and XZ(O). There are five colours available with the vehicle – Avenue White, Downtown Red, High-Street Gold, Midtown Grey and Skyline Silver. The car will get two different engine options. There will be a 1.2-litre Revotron, naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 86 PS and peak torque of 113 Nm. The diesel variants of the Tata Altroz will get powered by the 1.5-litre Revotorq engine that generates a maximum power of 90 PS and peak torque of 200 Nm. The petrol variants of the Nexon get the five-speed manual transmission while the diesel engine options also get the 5-speed manual transmission. Both the engines are BS6 compliant.

The base XE variant of the Tata Altroz comes loaded with features like ABS and EBD, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX anchorage for child seats, speed warning and seatbelt reminders. The base version also gets two driving modes – Eco and City.

Altroz 1

The most-loaded variants – XZ(O) comes with features like projector headlamps, LED DRLs, fog lamps, rear defogger, 4-way adjustable driver seat, 2-way adjustable co-driver seat, a 7.0-inch TFT colour display, four-speaker with two tweeters from Harman and more. The infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay system too. Other features in the Tata Altroz includes power windows, push-button start/stop system, smart key, keyless entry, ideal start/stop system, powered windows, fast charging USB port, rear AC vents, electric tailgate, cruise control system, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and many other features. The car also gets cornering lamps and engine immobiliser but even the top-end version of the Altroz only offers dual front airbags.

Tata has always been known for their highly competitive prices and the Altroz will not be different either. We can expect the Altroz to undercut the highly successful vehicles like the Hyundai Elite i20 and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno in terms of pricing. The Altroz looks quite fresh in terms of design and even the cabin offers a premium feel and look. Overall, the Altroz feels like a solid package that will serve as a perfect vehicle for the Tata Tiago owners when they want to upgrade.
