Is the size of the alloy same for Petrol/Diesel XZ+? Both these powertrain's share same alloy but the tyre size is different. I couldn't find the size of the alloys on the brochure.

Default Re: Tata Altroz : Official Review

I had a peculiar problem related with my Altroz, infact baggage of problem. To start with
1. The blurting of horn everytime I lock my car with my smart wrist key. The other key also did the same problem. My Altroz often didn't respond to the smart wrist key when I had to use the other key to unlock car.( This created quite a panic for me if that happens with me in a far off destination away from home as I had to travel around 70 kms away from home). I contacted the service station they said battery problem and changed the battery. The non responding issue with smart key gone but blurting of horn persisted and I just ignored.

2. Few months went by and the problem persisted unless few days back something weird started happening. My both the low beam headlamps got fused together and needed replacement urgently and I obliged. I ignored again.

3. Two days back my idle start stop function just stopped working. My Harman system started going blank and resetting itself randomly. The connectnext will switch my phone automatically from the car speaker to phone speaker and reconnect again. The instrument cluster will show low battery every now and then.

When I decided it's enough and got my car to the clinic. They are saying may be ECU problem or some electrical disturbance. Hope to get a solution by evening.

I recently watched the review of Tata Altroz i-Turbo posted by the youtube channel "MotoWagon".

In the video, the reviewer explains that even when the car is locked and is in motion, one can unlock the car, which is really a safety hazard. I had the same doubt when the car was launched, but I couldn't comment on the same without verifying. Now, as it is confirmed, I feel Tata must look into this, and change the lock mechanism for better safety.

I know child locks can be used to prevent such incidents, but IMO, it would be better if the lock mechanism is changed altogether.

Attaching the video link: (17:57 to 18:00)



P.S.: The reviewer says that he did the above process with seatbelts on and in permitted surroundings.

All cars can be unlocked when in motion. Nothing different with the Altroz. The difference is - the unlock switch is integrated within the door open lever, rather than a separate smaller knob/flap for unlock. This is similar to most cars in the western (especially EU) markets.

This is more of a psychological point than a real safety issue. Trust me, someone as nave as pulling a door open latch in a moving car, can be trusted to play with the unlock button as well, removing any real benefit of a separate button.

And absolutely - all children belong exclusively in the back, with child-safety activated on the doors, in their baby/booster seat, buckled in. The door open latch - is the last thing in the list for their safety, not first IMO.

Ah yes. I should have explained correctly.

Yes, you're absolutely right.

But some cars don't allow the doors to be opened when the car is in motion, right?

And, thank you for your explanation

I can't think of a car that does so, maybe there are. I don't know, I confess.

However, I pray there are no such cars. Imagine a very realistic scenario of someone being abducted. What would that unfortunate person's reaction be, if he/she can't jump out of it while taking the risk, given the fate otherwise can be even worse. Just because the car won't allow opening doors.

I'm facing a repeated issue after getting it fixed from service centre. The left horn pad keeps on not working in Altroz.
I was told that it is due to steering mount control wiring is done through that way and it is causing in all altroz.
Is everyone facing this issue or is it something I'm only experiencing?

That sounds like rubbish! I hope these ASC guys don't go about throwing statements that actually cast doubt on the overall R&D and engineering of the carmaker altogether, just to avoid work.

Get the entire horn / steering wheel assembly replaced under warranty in the worst case if they are not able to fix it. Absolutely no reason to accept what is clearly a defect.

Seltos doesn't allow to unlock the door when the car is in motion. Push the unlock button and it goes back to lock position in a millisecond. Threshold is >15-20 kmph probably (need to check this).

On the other hand, Brezza lets out a loud continuous chime when you open the door of the moving car.

There would be more such examples, probably.

Ah just a colour! Ok it looks quite neat on this sharp car. But how the optimist in me wishes the colour actually accompanied a sweat DCT or at least a conventional CVT/AT. Come on Tata.

Even in my Nexon the car gives a voice/audio warning that a certain door is open. (i.e. specific "Left rear door is open". Not just chimes.). I presume the Altroz carries this forward.

Thanks for clarifying.

Just wanted to confirm before escalating this to Tata motors. I have dropped a mail to Tata motors with the details. Hoping for the best.

Can confirm that I haven't seen this on my Altroz iturbo. But have indeed felt that the left horn pad requires more pressure to be functional and works only when to upper corner is pressed, instead the convenient centre of the pad.
