Tata is a leading passenger car manufacturer in India and they launched their first ever premium hatchback Altroz in the Indian market last year. Tata Altroz became popular among buyers for its unique styling and build quality. It is the only vehicle in this segment to get a 5 star safety rating at Global NCAP crash test. The Altroz competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo in the segment. Just like any other car in this segment, we have seen modified examples of Altroz as well. Here we have one such Altroz hatchback that has been neatly modified.
The images of this modified Tata Altroz has been shared by @99_notout_ on Instagram. The Altroz seen in the article belongs to our reader Manu Prabhakar. The Altroz seen here is an XE rhythm petrol variant. The car has been beautifully modified and when we spoke to Manu, he told us that, he along with his friends who own a garage had modified it. The work done on this Altroz looks neat.
As this is the base XE trim, it does not get several features like projector headlmaps and LED DRLs. The headlamps remain halogen but, the projector fog lamp is an custom made unit with ring like LED DRLs around it. The bumper on this Altroz remains stock but, the lower part of the bumper gets a splitter. The splitter enhances the front looks of the car and gives it a sporty character. As we move to the side profile, you start noticing the large wheels.
the original steel rims have been replaced with 17 inch GTR Pro aftermarket alloys. The other noticeable change here are the side skirts which and a bumper lip has been installed at the rear as well. The splitters and side skirts installed on this car get a gloss black finish which matches with the other gloss black elements on the car. The roof on this Altroz has also been blacked out. The original High Street Golden paint job on the Altroz has been retained in the images, the combination of golden with black looks good.
The owner has also installed a valvetronic exhaust on this Altroz. As we move in, the interiors have also been upgraded. The fabric seats in this car now get premium quality brown coloured seat covers. The owner has also installed an aftermarket Android touchscreen system with JBL sub-woofers. It also gets ambient lights inside the cabin.
As mentioned above, this is a petrol XE version which is powered by a 1.2 litre, naturally aspirated engine. No changes have been made to the engine on this car and it generates 86 Ps and 113 Nm of torque. Tata Altroz is offered with a manual gearbox only. Earlier this year, Tata launched a much more powerful version of Altroz known and i-turbo. It is powered by a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine that generates 110 Ps and 140 Nm of torque. Manu Prabhakar told us that, it took him and his friends around one and half month to complete the project and the approximate cost of this modification was round Rs 1.3 lakh.
