Its less than a milimeter.
Nice catch.

So, prospective customers like me should be looking to upsize to 205/55R16 or 195/60R16 or can perhaps even try 215/55 if it doesnít scrape the wheel well. Honestly, from what I understand from this video and from my experience of the setting, extra clearance will be required.

My diesel City runs on 205/60R15 Michelins. Stock size is 175/65R15.

215 patch is an overkill IMO. That's the spec on which slightly larger subcompact SUVs run. More than wheel well scraping, the real point to pay attention would be the added weight & the impact on braking distance - which will increase compared to stock size quite a lot.

Have you upgraded the alloys or running this size on stock alloys?

Thanks in advance.

Stock alloys. No change. Iím well into my second set of tires of this size now.

IMHO an upsize is going to badly affect the the power of already underpowered car. Diesel engine might hold up, but for a petrol, I would stay away from upsizing. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes we are in Bolero territory with 215

I think it's wise to drive carefully than try to increase ground clearance for hatches and sedan, it's already having too much gap in the wheel well towards the top compared to the gold standard car in their advertisement.

A lowering kit will fix the gap rather than bigger tires I feel. Not the easiest thing to do and won't solve the ground clearance problem either but will give you a car that people will keep looking and can't put a finger on what's special about it.

Good idea but weird execution. Tried too hard to grab eyeballs and ended up with an outcome which looks like a wannabe college project instead.

In an effort to deliver shock and awe to the audience, Tata has given us an advertisement which is truly shock(ing) and awe(ful)!

Fantastic review. Tata Motors seems to have really upped the ante with this car. Hopefully it does not have too many niggles, and does well for them. Am rooting for them to succeed.

The engine may be underpowered - but I lived with a 2nd Gen Honda City with 77 BHP, so I guess this may not be the end for the world for them.

Tata Altroz spied testing waiting at a traffic signal in Coimbatore, could be the turbo petrol variant.

Evident Indica silhouette, especially with that long and rounded hood. Good thing they worked on their initial designs and turned it into the stunner that it is. Indica-esque looks would have been a disaster to any premium ambitions the Altroz ever had.

I see a lot of Honda Jazz in this clay model for some reason. Agree with you, the final result is a stunner - neither Indica-esque, nor Jazz-ish. But in a league of its own.

I am expecting that Altroz and the facelifted Nexon will run the game for TATA from now on. I have talked to some middle class customers who are in the market for a new car. They start their search on new Altroz, think about an upgrade to Nexon. The Tiago isn't immediately attractive to this group now but most of them are ready to settle for Top end tiago for its bells and whistles. Tata has very competent products in this price band and this will improve as they bring the HBX. The image and brand perception these products creates will help them to gain confidence to up their game to higher segments. It will be great if they can bring better engine options to Altroz.
