The Tata Altroz is offered in 5 variants – XE, XM, XT, XZ and XZ (O).
After quite a few delays, Tata Motors has finally revealed its much-awaited premium hatchback, the Altroz. While the price will be announced at the 2020 Auto Expo, the company has revealed the number of variants and the specifications for the same.
Tata has also opted for customisation packs with the Altroz for buyers looking for certain features but are uninterested in shelling out more for the top-spec models. The premium hatchback is offered in 5 variants – XE, XM, XT, XZ and XZ (O). The customisation options are spread across 4 different packages – Rhythm, Style, Luxe and Urban.
The Tata Altroz XE gets standard equipment such as dual-chamber headlamps, wheel hub caps, a chrome-finished dashboard layout, and a 4-inch LCD instrument cluster. Other standard equipment includes ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, manual AC as well as City and Eco drive modes. The XE Rhythm adds a 3.5-inch infotainment system, four speakers and a foldable key with a dual-tone horn.
The Tata Altroz XM offers a variety of additional features aside from the ones in the XE variant. Feature additions include driver side mood lighting, power windows on all doors and a 3.5-inch infotainment system with FM/AM, USB, Bluetooth and i-Pad connectivity. It also gets 2 speakers as well as electrically adjustable and auto-fold ORVMs. The Tata Altroz XM Rhythm package adds a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment, four speakers, and reverse park assist camera. On the other hand, the Style package on the XM gets 16-inch steel wheels, a contrast black roof, body-colored wing mirrors, front and rear fog lamps and LED daytime running lamps.
The Tata Altroz XT features more kit compared to its lower-spec trim.

It also gets other kits like rear park assist with camera, LED DRLs, follow me home/ find me function, as well as a cooled and illuminated glove box. The Urban package on the XT features exterior colour coordinated interiors, 16-inch diamond-cut alloys, body-coloured wing mirrors and a contrast black roof.
Top of the line, Tata Altroz XZ, XZ(O) are loaded with features. This includes dual-tone alloy wheels, projector headlamps, fully automatic climate control, auto headlamps as well as steering mounted controls.

Rear AC vents, a rear power outlet, rear fog lamps, rear defogger are also part of the package. What sets the XZ and the XZ (O) apart is the black contrast roof offered with the (O) variant.
The Tata Altroz gets a choice of 2 BS6-compliant engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. Both engines are offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox option. Moreover, the company has confirmed that a dual-clutch automatic gearbox will be introduced in the future.
