    What Are The Features Of The Tata Altroz XM Style?

    The following are the added features that the Altroz XM Style:

    The Altroz XM Style package comes for Rs. 34,000 more. It offers added styling features to make the already good looking Altroz sportier. These added features include black coloured roof wrap, Daytime Running Lights, front and rear fog lamps, body-coloured wing mirrors and larger 16-inch wheels along with wheel covers.

    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.
