Tata is all set to enter the premium hatchback space with the new Altroz. Taking the fight to some established names like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and the Honda Jazz, Tata seems to have brought in a good mix of features and equipment across its variant range. Like most other cars from the Tata stable, the variant nomenclature will remain the same. It will be launched in 5 variants - XE, XM, XT, XZ and XZ (O). Let’s take a closer look at the features and equipment each of these variants comes with.
Even the base trim of the Altroz will come with body coloured bumpers and door handles. The piano black applique on the tailgate and the rear spoiler will also fitted on the XE variant. On the inside the flat bottom steering wheel will also be standard across all variants. The dashboard, however, will be finished in light nickel silver on this base trim. The driver display on the XE will be a 4-inch LCD screen. In terms of safety, even the base XE trim comes well equipped. It gets ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, ISOFIX, central locking and rear parking sensors.
In addition to all the features from the XE trim, the Altroz XM will get a 3.5-inch infotainment system paired with just 2 speakers. Thankfully though, this infotainment system will be Bluetooth, USB and i-Pad connectivity. This trim also gets all four power windows, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs and ambient lighting on the driver side.
Over and above the features on the XM variant, the XT gets LED DRLs, mood lighting on the driver and passenger side foot well, a cooled glove box, reverse parking camera with dynamic guideways and anti-glare IRVM. At 7 inches, the infotainment screen on the XT is also larger, and it also comes paired with a 4 speaker 2 tweeter sound system. This one also gets smart phone integration, voice command and whatsapp and text message read-out. The XT also comes with a fast USB charging feature. Idle start-stop function, button start, keyless entry and cruise control are some of the other features on the XT variant. On the inside, the XT trim onwards, all variants will flaunt the classicque satin chrome finish dashboard.
XZ and XZ (O):
Both these variants sit right at the top and come fitted with all the gizmos that you’d expect in this segment. They come with dual pod projector headlamps, leather wrapped steering wheel, mood lighting on the dash, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers and rear wash / wipe and defogger. Inside, the XZ and XZ (O) variants get turn-by-turn navigation on the infotainment screen, one-touch down window on the driver side, height adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, steering mounted controls, adjustable head rest at the back and rear AC vents. In the safety department, both these variants will come with height adjustable front seat belts. Both these variants also come with 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The only difference between the XZ and XZ (O) variants will be the black contrast roof.
