Altroz is Tata’s offering in the premium hatchback segment. It is the first premium hatchback from Tata and is doing pretty well in the market. The Altroz became popular among buyers for its distinct looks and build quality. It is currently the safest car in the segment with a 5-star safety rating on the Global NCAP crash test. Altroz is a premium hatchback with modification potential. We have seen several examples of tastefully modified Tata Altroz from different parts of India. Here we have a video where the Tata Altroz Dark Edition hatchback gets a set of aftermarket splitters installed in them.
The video is uploaded by Vinay Kapoor on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about the universal splitter that has been made by his firm. The vlogger used to offer Predator series splitters before and the one seen here in the video is now the updated version only. The new series of splitters are called ‘Snyper’. The splitters are not made of ABS grade plastic as we have seen in the past. It is made from an architectural alloy material which is light in weight and is also easily repairable.

The advantage of installing the splitters is that they are not single units. So even if one of the parts gets damaged, it can either be replaced or repaired as an individual unit. The Tata Altroz seen here is the Dark Edition version and it looks extremely good with the splitter installed on it. The newly installed splitter gives the car an aggressive and sporty look and enhances the overall look of the car. The white radium stickers on the splitter are not part of the standard equipment. Coming to the side profile, the side skirts have been installed. It is also made of the same material as the front splitter.
The Dark Edition Tata Altroz comes with blacked-out alloy wheels and other features. The Snyper body kit is actually an updated version of the Predator kit that the vlogger used to sell before. It looks a lot more sporty and has a twin wing-like design at the end of the side skirt. As we move to the rear, the car gets a rear diffuser installed below the bumper. It is different from the ones that were available in the market before. There is no base plate visible on the rear bumper on which the diffuser is mounted. It looks like individual units that are fixed on the lower part of the rear bumper.
Tata Altroz as mentioned above is a premium hatchback and it competes with cars like Hyundai i20, Maruti Baleno, and Honda Jazz in the segment. The car comes with three engine options. There is a 1.2 litre, naturally aspirated petrol engine. This engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a recently introduced DCT gearbox option. The next engine option is the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. This engine is offered with a manual gearbox only. Tata also offers a turbo petrol version of Altroz which is known as i-Turbo. It comes with a manual gearbox only.
