Tata Altroz: Variants Explained


Spoilt for choice? We’ll help you pick the right one

Tata Motors has finally unveiled the Altroz hatchback ahead of its January 2020 launch. This is Tata’s first attempt in the premium hatchback space that will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20. It is based on the ALFA ARC modular platform and comes with two BS6-compliant engines. Bookings have begun for a token amount of Rs 21,000. While the carmaker is yet to disclose the price range, it will have 5 Altroz variants once launched. Here are the details:

 

XE 

We start off with the barebone variant. It gets standard equipment such as dual chamber headlamps, wheel hub caps, a chrome finished dashboard layout, and a 4-inch LCD instrument cluster. Other standard equipment includes ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, manual AC as well as City and Eco drive modes. 

Being a barebone variant, it misses out on a host of equipment such as dual-tone alloy wheels, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, an infotainment system, as well as ambient mood lighting. Other misses are rear power windows, electrically adjustable and auto fold ORVMs, rear parking assist, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, keyless entry as well as height adjustable driver seat. The XE variant would be ideal for someone who is tight on budget and willing to compromise on a host of premium features.

 

XM

The second variant of the Altroz offers a variety of additional features aside from the ones in the XE variant. Feature additions include driver side mood lighting, power windows on all doors and a 3.5-inch infotainment system with FM/AM, USB, Bluetooth and i-Pad connectivity. It also gets 2 speakers as well as electrically adjustable and auto-fold ORVMs. 

It however misses out on the bigger 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a larger digital instrument cluster,  rear parking assist, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, keyless entry as well as a height adjustable driver seat. Other misses include a rear parking camera, auto headlamps, dual-tone alloy wheels, front and rear fog lamps as well as full automatic climate control.

 

XT

We now get to the mid-spec XT variant that features more kit compared to its lower spec trim. It gets  a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, 6 speaker Harman audio system, push button stop/start, keyless entry and cruise control. It also gets other kit like rear park assist with camera, LED DRLs, follow me home/ find me function, as well as a cooled and illuminated glove box. 

There are some misses though with features such as dual-tone alloy wheels, projector headlamps, fully automatic climate control, auto headlamps as well as steering-mounted controls not being offered. It also lacks rain sensing wipers, auto-down window (driver’s side), front and rear armrest, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever.

 

XZ, XZ(O) 

We finally head to the most premium variant of the Altroz, which is loaded with a variety of features. This includes dual-tone alloy wheels, projector headlamps, fully automatic climate control, auto headlamps as well as steering mounted controls. It also gets rain sensing wipers, auto-down window (driver’s side), front and rear armrest, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever. Other nifty bits include rear AC vents, rear power outlet, rear fog lamps, rear defogger and rain sensing front wipers. The only difference between the XZ and the XZ (O) is that the option variant is available with a black contrast roof.
