Team-BHP's Tata Altroz Review is live!

Click here to read the definitive review of the Tata Altroz.

What you'll like:

  • Looks absolutely stunning! Solid build too
  • Nice interior with good quality parts & adequate space
  • Accommodating 345-litre boot is among the biggest of the segment
  • Competent turbo-diesel engine. Good driveability, punchy & fuel-efficient
  • Mature on-road behaviour, including at highway speeds
  • 5-star NCAP safety rating! Safety package includes dual airbags, CSC, break reminder etc.
  • Enjoyable Harman 6-speaker ICE. One of the better systems in this segment
  • Impressive kit (auto headlamps & wipers, cruise control, ambient lighting, adjustable armrest...)
  • Factory-fitted customisation packs available

What you won't:

  • Under-powered, lame & noisy 3-cylinder 1.2L petrol engine
  • Suspension has a firm edge at low speeds (16" rim variants). Bad roads will bother you
  • Diesel variant carries an insane premium! Works out to almost Rs. 2 lakhs on the road
  • Service visit every 6 months / 7,500 km (1 year / 10,000 km is the norm today)
  • Some missing features (auto-dimming IRVM, thinner spare tyre on top trims, split-folding rear seat...)
  • No automatic variant in a market that loves its ATs
  • Tata's after-sales service quality is a hit or miss. Remains a gamble
  • Concerns over niggles in a freshly-baked Tata product
