Tata Altroz is available with both petrol and diesel engine options and we have seen several review videos of the same on the internet. Here we have a different type of video, were two vloggers from Kerala have come up with a video regarding the power of petrol Tata Altroz.
One of the vlogger talks about the issues that a customer is facing with his Altroz and also how underpowered it feels while climbing steep sections, whereas the second video is from another vlogger who is trying to prove that Altroz does not feel underpowered at all. The videos have been uploaded on Dileep Pg and OffBeat Travellers Youtube channel. Starting with the first video which is posted above. According to the vlog, the owner of the vehicle has been facing minor issues ever since he had bought this vehicle.
He got in touch with service center several times and they were not able to fix the issues even after that. The video shows a small clip where the gear lever of the Altroz can be seen vibrating vigorously. The vlog then shows, the Altroz trying to climb a steep road with 5 people onboard. The wheel starts spinning and a sound is also heard from the dashboard. After some time, when the slope became a bit more steep, the car was not able to climb and the vlogger had to get out so that the car can move forward. The occupants at the rear were also complaining about the vibrations and said that they were also feeling some amount of it.
In the second video, the vlogger does the same challenge but, this time around, there were 6 people in the car. Just like the first experiment, this is also a petrol vehicle and generates the same amount of power. The vlogger does not mention any issues with the vehicle and he seems to be pretty satisfied with the Altroz. For the hill climb section, it looks like a different location with steep roads. The car was loaded with 6 passengers and the driver started moving forward from the bottom and car smoothly picked up speed. In this video, he can be heard asking the driver whether the car feels underpowered or not.
The driver smoothly drives it over all the section, the vlogger even asks the driver to drive it in reverse with 5 people onboard and Altroz does it easily. In the first video, the vehicle had some issues and that is reason why it was vibrating hard and was not going up the hill. We are pretty sure that, once the issue gets resolved the car could have easily gone up on that stretch with five people onboard. The second video from the other channel made it pretty evident that, it is not a general issue but, an issue that is there in that particular vehicle.
The Altroz is Tata Motors’ first car in the premium hatchback segment. It was launched in the market back in 2020 and competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz in the segment. It is currently the only vehicle in the segment that has received a 5 star rating in Global NCAP crash test.
