Tata Altroz Premium Hatchback To Get Cruise Control and Full-Colour Dash; Confirmed Features List
Tata Altroz premium hatchback was recently spotted once more in Europe. Reportedly, it was in the process of shooting a promotional video of the car ahead of the launch
The interiors spy shots also surfaced a few weeks earlier reveal most of whats there to see in the car. Heres the list of features we can safely assume that the Tata Altroz premium hatchback will get:
- Cruise control (clearly visible in the spy pics as the right side steering-mounted controls)
- Analogue speedometer with full-colour multi-information display. The full-colour display will show a tachometer along with real-time power and torque being generated by the engine (similar to what weve seen in the Maruti Baleno)
- External temperature
- Average fuel efficiency
- Digital fuel gauge
- Push-button start
- Flat-bottom steering wheel
- Multiple driving modes
- Popup style touchscreen infotainment system with physical playback and volume controls
- Android Auto/Apple Carplay
- 5-speed gearbox
- Automatic AC / climate control
- Front armrest
Tata Altroz Feature 1: Cruise Control
Tata Altroz is only the third car in its segment to get cruise control. The other cars that come with cruise control in the premium hatchback space are Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. The Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20 Elite dont have this feature yet.
Tata Altroz Feature 2: Full-Colour Screen Console
Another distinguishing feature for the Tata Altroz is the large colour MID in the console. While it doesnt appear to offer any significantly crucial information based on the spy pics, it has the potential to be a game-changer. Because Tata could just release a software update and theTata Altroz console screen can gain a new feature or layout or both. Having Google Maps GPS navigation on the console will be a great feature. While the driver can focus on the navigation, the rest of the occupants can use the infotainment system for something else.
Tata Altroz Launch
The Tata Altroz launch should have happened before the 2019 festive season (September 2019). But it doesnt look like its going to launch around the festivities. After the festive season, it doesnt make sense to launch a new car as the demand generally tapers off in the last quarter of a calendar year. Because the buyers prefer waiting for next years model for purchase. So, were expecting to see the Tata Altroz launch in the first quarter of 2020. Therefore, itll also launch with the BS6 engine from day one.
