The Tata Altroz petrol version is available with a 1.2-litre petrol engine, which can generate 86PS of power and 113Nm of torque. The Altroz petrol offers the second highest power output among its prominent rivals, while offering similar torque output as its rivals. However, the Altroz’s peak torque comes earlier at 3300rpm, which means it should offer better drivability.

The Altroz petrol comes with a 5-speed manual transmission, but lacks an automatic transmission option unlike its competitors. However, Tata Motors is expected to offer an automatic transmission option quite soon.

Should You Buy The Tata Altroz XM/ XM Rhythm/ XM Style?

Considering that the Altroz XM variant costs a premium of Rs. 61,000 over the XE Rhythm package, it is not recommended, as it really doesn’t offer much and lacks some features as well.

The XM Rhythm variant also can’t be recommended, as it doesn’t offer anything significant for its added price. However, again if you want to get a touchscreen infotainment in the XM, then the Rhythm package is the only way to go, as Tata Motors hasn’t given the provision to fit an aftermarket music system in this car.

When the XM Style package is concerned, it seems to be well worth the additional Rs. 34,000 over the XM, as it offers quite a few styling features to make the car look more premium. Thus, if you really want to buy the XM variant, then the XM Style is worth considering. However, as the XM variant itself is not recommended, due to its low value for money factor over the XE Rhythm, we can’t really recommend the XM Style either.
