Tata Altroz is one of the safest cars in the country and one of the top three best-selling luxury hatchbacks. The Altroz trim line starts with the base-spec XE trim, which starts at Rs 5.85 lakh (ex-sh). Because the price difference between the XE and preceding XM trims was large, a new, more economical XE+ trim was introduced. The new Altroz XE+ has a starting price of Rs 6.35 lakh for petrol and Rs 7.55 lakh for the diesel. To make the new XE+ trim more inexpensive, it’s possible that elements that don’t necessarily affect buying decisions have been deleted.
Altroz New XE+ trim Features
In comparison to the XE trim, the Altroz XE+ adds 4-speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, FM/AM radio, USB connector, and fast USB charging to the base-spec XE trim. Harman’s 8.89cm floating dashtop infotainment system is also available for the XE+. Remote keyless entry, manually adjustable and auto fold ORVMs, electric temperature control, and a follow me home and find me function are among the other amenities. All other features and specifications are identical to those of the XE base trim.
For the new XE+ trim’s lower price, features like the rear parcel shelf, wheel caps, and electrically adjustable ORVMs had to be sacrificed. Users who want these facilities would have to choose for the XM+ trim, which starts at Rs 6.85 lakh for petrol and Rs 8 lakh for the diesel (diesel). Rear speakers have been added to the Altroz XM+ trim. Previously, this trim only came with front speakers.
Tata Altroz Price Hike Nov 2021
This year, Tata Motors hiked the price of Altroz once again. The most recent price increase occurred in August 2021. Altroz XE petrol has been reduced by Rs 10,000 in the latest price hike, which will take effect in November 2021. The price of all other variants has increased by Rs 400 to Rs 8,500.
Altroz Engine and Specs
The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine and the 1.5-litre turbocharged Revotorq diesel engine are available in all Altroz grades. At 6,000 rpm, the petrol engine produces 86 horsepower and 113 Nm of peak torque at 3,300 rpm. At 4,000 rpm, the diesel engine produces 90 horsepower and 200 Nm at 1250-3000 rpm. Tata also provides the Altroz i-Turbo, which is equipped with a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine. From 5,500 rpm, it produces 110 ps and 140 Nm at 1500-5500 rpm. With the XT, XZ, and XZ+ trims, the i-Turbo option is available.
A 5-speed manual transmission is standard with all engine selections. This could be a stumbling block for Altroz, as its main competitors, the Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20, offer both manual and automatic transmission options. When the automatic option for Altroz will be available is unknown.
Altroz has a 5-star rating from Global NCAP when it comes to safety. Dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, corner stability control, reverse parking sensors, puncture repair kit, ISOFIX child seat mounts, engine immobiliser, and electric power-assisted collapsible steering are all included in the new XE+ trim’s safety package.
Altroz also has iRA linked car technology, however, only top-spec trims are available. Remote commands, finding my car, stolen vehicle tracking, remote immobilisation, intrusion alarm, geo-fence, roadside assistance, and live vehicle diagnosis are some of the primary connectivity functions offered by iRA.
