Default Re: Tata Altroz : Official Review

We went to Tata showroom today to checkout the cars and offers. Showroom was buzzing and the sales person casually told me that the recent traction of interest for Tata cars is even beyond their expectation

And one clarification needed regarding Altroz. I sat multiple times in the Altroz rear and Tigor rear. I somehow felt that the Altroz seat cushioning was very stiff in comparison to the Tigor. Even the back cushion appeared to be stiff in the Altroz. Can someone comment on this?

You checked out the Tigor?. Did you notice the update door lock/unlock mechanism or it was the same pull/push door knob.?

Sorry. I didn't notice the door mechanism very closely.

Tata pulls another one at 'yet to be launched' Hyundai i20 on its Halloween commercial on social media.



And their caption reads

You can i the trick 20 times, but it's the treat that you fall for.

This clash seems all about the looks of the new i20, that it doesn't really grow on you.

This time I personally liked it, as despite being good looking from some angles the i20 isn't half as good looking unlike the Elite i20 was from every angle you look at, when it was launched. I still aspire to own one pre-owned, and not the fan of the facelift as well. As of now in my opinion, only the understated classy grandpa of the segment (Polo) the new kid on the block (Altroz) are the best looking hatchbacks on sale in India

Tata should learn to stay classy and do ads like the legendary Safari ads.

This reminds me of Bajaj Dominar ads dissing Royal Enfield and failing royally.

Altroz sales has just taken the momentum, and they want to tease the tried and tested segment best seller (ofcourse after the baleno). I am not talking about the upcoming i20 as a car, but the i20 as the brand that it has evolved to be, positively.

What's up with the Happy Halloween 6002?

What does that number signify?

But no news of the automatic variants yet. As per latest rumours, even the turbo petrol is supposed to come with the manual first and automatic "later".

With the adoption of automatic cars, especially with respect to its segment on the rise, Lack of automatic variants is definitely a stickler for Altroz. Either they want to test and tune the DCT to the T or there has been some major fiasco in the DCT causing the indefinite delay.

Assumptions aside, All other players have an acceptable automatic(i.e. not AMT) in the segment. Nothing against AMT, I don't feel it fits the segment but atleast they could have provided that option till the DCT one roles out.

As a Tiago user, I'd advise anyone to stay away from the stock HU and go for a 3rd party one with good integration to the car controls. Multiple times have the interface become laggy and useless that right now I'm contemplating not using the HU at all and just using the phone by mounting it somewhere.

Why launch a new XM+ when you already had the XM rhythm variant?
I think they are messing up the product variant lineup. The XM already isn't here or there. Shouldn't have existed in the first place.

The most important thing that the XM variant needs is the decent 16 inch wheels instead of that pathetic 14 inch ones.

Totally spoils the looks.
And what's with having alloy wheels only in the top spec XZ?

XT diesel retails at 9.5 lakhs on road. It should have come with alloy wheels.

Diwali is done and still no hint of the automatic version. There were rumours that the Turbo petrol would be launched this time around and that also did not happen. Dealers have no idea on the upcoming launch dates. All the other planned launches - Sonet, all-new i20 and the Magnite are all done. Altroz was unveiled on the first week of December 2019 and it is going to be an year since then, repeating the story of the Harrier automatic.

With just 1 petrol + 1 diesel engine paired with a manual transmission, the Altroz has a total of 23 variants! Completely unnecessary I feel, why can't Tata keep things simple & limit the number of variants to just 8.
