  • Pros
  • Cons

Hyundai i20

  • Well built & premium interior
  • loaded with segment-first features
  • wide range of engines/transmissions to choose from.

Tata Altroz

  • Good road presence. Supple ride and great balance between handling and comfort. Practical and spacious cabin.

Hyundai i20

  • Tall users will want more front headroom
  • sense of space isn’t as great as it is in a rival like the Honda Jazz
  • prices have jumped up.

Tata Altroz

  • Petrol engine lacks refinement and is noisy. Gear shifts are clunky. Piano black accents on the outside easily pick up dust swirls.

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. How is the performance of i20 petrol 1.2 Asta, compared to Altroz and Baleno?
  • All these cars put out similar power performance. If we talk about Hyundai i20 1.2 petrol, this is an improved version of the older 1.2-litre engine and does help with refinement. However, power remains a bit scarce. It does its city duties fairly well and you won't have a reason to complain while commuting, but it starts to feel a little stressed on the highways or when you are looking to extract all the horsepower out of it. If we talk about tata Altroz, petrol engine feels crude to push and the three-cylinder clatter remains present throughout the rev band. The refinement doesn't feel anywhere close to what the segment has to offer. The power delivery is liner and smooth. This will be helpful in the city as it offers a smooth drive, not overwhelming you at any point. However, the lack of power and punch is evident. The engine is slow to rev and even at higher revs, doesn't feel sporty. This becomes more prominent on the highways. You will have to downshift a couple of gears to make a quick overtake or to hit a gap in traffic. This could be partially down to the Altroz weighing 1036kg kerb. For reference, the Baleno Smart Hybrid petrol weighs 910kg. While the Baleno's engine feels refined and linear in its power delivery its feels just like a Swift when it comes to performance. It is fun to drive and delivers good fuel efficiency. However, it isn't that stable a high speed as compared to other two. You may compare app these cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. I'm down to the new hyundai i20 and Tata altroz XZ. which one should I buy?
  • Selecting between the Hyundai i20 and Tata Altroz would depend on certain factors such as your budget, brand preference, preference of the segment, features required, etc. Hyundia i20 certainly pushed expectations from the segment ahead by offering more features and more choice with the drive options, while improving on the basic need of space and practicality. But you can’t push the boundaries without pushing the cost ahead as well. On the other hand, Tata Altroz planted an attitude to make it even more versatile and enjoyable, with a five-star safety rating. Altroz offers ample space and the package feels all the more impressive. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more -Hyundai i20 vs Tata Altroz.
Q. Which car should i choose i20, Tata Altroz or Dzire?
  • All cars are good enough and have their own forte. While the Altroz does not manage to set a new standard in the segment, it will fit right into the mix with a long feature list, sharp looks and a comfortable ride. The engine refinement remains to be the major chink in the armor. On the other hand Hyundai i20 is well built

    This was my first car, after dabbling with zens of the world, i finally arrived at this beauty. 2009 was the year when there were a lot of scepticism about the premium hatchback segment. However still decided against the wave and spent 10 years liking this car and my decision every moment. Reasons to like the car was always the ahead of time facilities at that point of time - auto door lock, aux connection, rear window washer, foglights ( which i had used as DRLs for quite some time). I have had a couple of trips in very precarious road conditions and evertime this trusted beast delivered. So in case you are reading this review wondering wether to buy a refurbished old i20 or not.. as long as your garage guy does not show any particular apprehension, i would say go for it.

    Overall i20 is complete package in terms of mileage performance and safety.I bought this after rejecting maruti swift that time because of cheap build quality.I have mileage of 19 kmpl on highway with ac on 1 point outside temprature was around 40 degree.Ride quality is better than all other maruti cars.If you dnt wan to beleive then go for test ride.One pint to add very less cabin noise as compare to all other cars.

  • 5.0

    The car has mainly been used for annual mumbai-goa trips and that is why only 10614km has been driven.It's in good condition and the only reason i'm selling is that i want to shift to an automatic transmission.

  • 5.0

    This is my first car.I was confused between venue and i20.But i was impressed with the low end torque and comfort of i20.5 people can sit comfortably.This is my first car and i am so far satisfied with it.

    Having owned the vehicle for last one month and after driving it for 1000 km, I can say I am delighted by this car. It always put a smile on my face. I am getting mileage of more than 20 on highways when I switch on eco mode with cruise control. Overall I have got mileage of 16 so far which is a very good mileage for a petrol car.I think its a really Gold Standard as its being advertised.Its not yet perfect though, the car is a bit lazy in first and second gears which is expected for a naturally aspirated engine. Some revving will be required to overcome the shortage of torque. If somebody is not aware this or want better low-end torque, better to go for the diesel variant or wait for the turbo variant.

  • 5.0

    After 1.5 month of research and analysis i found altroz among premium hatchback segment (i20, Baleno).I wanted a car with safety style comfort mileage road presence feature preferably.And tata altroz filled my requirement.Engine performance is also good it takes 2, 3 second more to getup to 100 than i20 and baleno because of its heavy weight of material.But which is not merely mensionable.I am totally satisfied.If you are already a hardcore tata hater then you will not find it as worth car.But if you believe in product then definitely you should buy.U will never regret after purchase.

    Hello Guys. I am Sameer.Proud owner of TATA ALTROZ XT PETROL model.The car is fantastic, awasome, eye catchy. looks sexy, I drove the car occasionally. My ALTROZ gives me comfortable riding, and one think I want to tell you when you seat in the car you feel safe and relax. you do not have to modify the car.. XT MODEL is worth the 💰.Go for it... Don't buy Baleno, IGNIS, i20, Go for it... because you r buying ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ safety car.. LIFE IS IMPORTANT THAN MILEAGE..

  • 5.0

    Completed three months of ownership of the XZ(o) gold and black dual tone. It's been a joyful ride. Purchased the car for its NCAP safety rating. Ride comfort and handling are superb, cornering stability is excellent. I drive the petrol and the engine is adequately powered and I love the low growl of the engine. Boot space is adequate and interiors are premium. I call it my Goldstag. :)

  • 5.0

    Excellent car and everyone will be affordable with the launching price. You can drive car the confidently as per GNAP-5 rating and safer for indian roads. Very smooth steering responce and more spacious. Dnt get confuse and worry about other competitors commenting on Tata products and think about family safety.
