Tata Motors has launched the Altroz premium hatchback in the country with the price for the petrol variant start at ₹ 5.29 lakh and go up to ₹ 7.69 lakh (ex-showroom India), while the diesel ranges from ₹ 6.99 lakh to ₹ 9.29 lakh (ex-showroom India).
The Altroz marks the company's first outing in the premium hatchback space and this car will be the first to be based on the ALFA modular platform (AMP). The Altroz has been brought in with the intention to stir up the competition in the premium hatchback segment where the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20 and even the Honda Jazz enjoy a huge advantage.
it is the first car in the company's ALFA modular architecture, which can also be configured for a hybrid as well as an electric version. Earlier this month, the new Tata Altroz scored a five-star rating in the latest Global NCAP crash test results, making it the second Tata product to achieve the feat with the previous one being Tata Nexon.
The Altroz then promises to be big on features as also on space. In terms of dimensions, the Tata Altroz measures 3990 mm long, 1755 mm wide and 1523 mm height. The premium hatchback comes with a 2501 mm long wheelbase and an unladen ground clearance of 165 mm. The petrol version of the car weighs 1036 kg while the diesel version tips the scales at 1150 kg.
The exterior of the Altroz follows Tata's Impact 2.0 design language, with integrated LED DRLs into the fog lamps while the projector headlamps are connected to the honeycomb mesh grille, and this looks quite promising to look at. The split LED taillamps and the rear door handles sit in the top corner of the Altroz and compliment the front perfectly.
