Tata Altroz (automatic) launched at Rs. 8.1 lakh: Check features
Tata Motors has introduced the automatic version of its Altroz hatchback in India. To recall, its bookings had commenced earlier this month. The model comes with a dual-clutch automatic (DCA) transmission and is offered in XMA+, XTA, XZA, XZA (O), XZA+, XTA Dark, and XZA+ Dark variants. It also offers new features like shift-by-wire technology, machine learning, and auto park lock.
Why does this story matter?
After the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the Tata Altroz is the second most selling hatchback in India. The introduction of an automatic variant will raise its appeal in the market and attract a lot of buyers. The model has been priced competitively on our shores and rivals the likes of Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, and the Honda Jazz.
The model has a new Opera Blue paintwork
The Tata Altroz DCA sports a sculpted hood, a wide air vent, and swept-back automatic headlights with DRLs. It is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, and 16-inch alloy wheels. Dimensions-wise, the car has a wheelbase of 2,501mm and a ground clearance of 165mm. The four-wheeler is offered in Cosmos Black, Avenue White, Harbour Blue, Opera Blue, Arcade Gray, and Downtown Red shades.
It is fueled by an 85hp, 1.2-liter engine
The Tata Altroz's automatic variant draws power from a 1.2-liter, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 85hp and a peak torque of 113Nm. The mill is linked to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox for handling transmission duties.
The hatchback gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment panel
The Tata Altroz DCA has a spacious cabin with leatherette upholstery, automatic climate control, key-less entry with push-button start-stop, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It houses a 7.0-inch semi-digital instrument cluster and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with support for iRA connected car technology. The safety of the passengers is ensured by multiple airbags, ABS, a reverse parking camera, and crash sensors.
