Just days after unveiling the Altroz in India, Tata Motors has launched the premium hatchback in the country today.
It is offered in ten variants and is available with BS6-compliant petrol as well as diesel engines.
The car comes at a starting price of Rs. 5.29 lakh and its bookings are currently live at a token amount of Rs. 21,000.
Here's our roundup.
Tata Altroz: At a glance
The Tata Altroz is built on in-house ALFA (Agile, Light, Flexible and Advanced) platform and comes with a sporty look featuring a slightly curved roof design, dual-tone color scheme, a minimalistic grille with honeycomb patterns, and 16-inch sporty-looking alloy wheels.
Apart from that, the car also gets an angular-looking side profile, sleek headlamps with DRLs, and split LED taillights.
Inside the cabin
Inside, the five-seater Tata Altroz offers a spacious cabin featuring height-adjustable driver seat, fabric upholstery, and ambient lighting.
The premium hatchback also houses a three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel and a 7-inch infotainment system with support for connectivity features.
For safety, the car offers dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, a rear parking camera with sensors, seat belts with pre-tensioners, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
Tata Altroz: One of India's safest cars
Notably, the Tata Altroz has scored five stars for adult and three stars for child occupant safety in the recently conducted crash tests by UK-based Global NCAP - an independent body that ranks consumer protection by evaluating vehicle's performance against multiple safety hazards.
Power and performance
The Tata Altroz is available in two BS6-compliant engine options: a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5-liter turbo-diesel.
The petrol unit generates 85PS of power and 114Nm of peak torque, while the diesel mill churns out 90PS and 200Nm.
Both these engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, the company might introduce an automatic gearbox variant in the future.
Finally, what is the pricing?
The petrol-powered Tata Altroz starts at Rs. 5.29 lakh for the entry-level XE variant and goes up to Rs. 7.69 lakh for the top-spec XZ (O) model.
On the other hand, the diesel variant starts at Rs. 6.99 lakh for the base-end XE model and goes up to Rs. 9.29 lakh for the top-tier XZ (O) trim.
