What Are The Pros And Cons Of Tata Altroz Petrol?

The pros or advantages of Tata Altroz petrol are:

  • 5-star GNCAP safety rating
  • Reasonable premium of Rs. 60,000 for the turbo petrol engine (compared to the rivals) and Rs. 1.07 lakh for the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic

  • 1.2L normal petrol engine offers peak torque at a fairly low 3300rpm for easy drivability in the city

The Tata Altroz petrol has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • The turbo petrol engine has the lowest power and torque output compared to its rivals
  • Lower variants get skinny 165-section tyres with 14-inch wheels, even with the XT turbo variant
  • Automatic transmission not available with the turbo petrol engine
  • Long and confusing variant lineup makes decision making difficult
  • Stripped down base XE and XE Plus variants miss out on several must-have features

What Is The Price Of Tata Altroz Petrol Variants?

The 2022 Tata Altroz petrol is available with 3 engine-transmission combinations:

  • 1.2L normal petrol with manual transmission
  • 1.2L normal petrol with DCT automatic transmission

The normal petrol engine is available in all 7 primary variants with prices starting from Rs. 6.0 lakh for the base model and going up to Rs. 8.53 lakh (ex-showroom) for the XZ Plus variant.

Tata Altroz Petrol XE - Base Model Features & Review

The base XE variant of the Tata Altroz is only available with the 1.2L normal petrol engine and a manual transmission. It costs Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom). The most notable features of the Altroz XE are:

  • Drive modes

  • Adjustable front headrests
  • Tilt steering
  • Dead pedal

With so many features missing in the base XE variant, we can’t recommend anyone to buy this variant.

Tata Altroz Petrol XE vs XE Plus Variant - Price, Feature Comparison

The Altroz XE Plus variant also gets the same 1.2L normal petrol-manual powertrain for Rs. 6.43 lakh, which is Rs. 42,000 more than the base model’s price. For this additional cost, it adds the following notable features:

  • Music system with 4 speakers
  • Remote central locking
  • Internally-adjustable outside mirrors

  • Larger wheels with wheel covers

The Altroz XE Plus doesn’t offer good value either as the incremental asking price is much higher than what you’re getting for the price. You should stretch your budget and skip the XE Plus trim for a higher variant.

The additional features of the Tata Altroz XM Plus also don’t justify the price gap from the lower variants. But for budget-conscious buyers, this is the minimum variant worth buying to get a decent ownership experience. We’ll still strongly recommend stretching your budget for the XT if you can to get better value as well as more features.

With the turbo petrol engine, the Tata Altroz XT carries an ex-showroom price of Rs. 8.13 lakh. These prices are Rs. 50,000 higher than the lower XM Plus variant.

For the Altroz 1.2L normal petrol manual and automatic buyers, the XT is a good option and the most affordable one we can recommend without any hesitation. It not only offers a well-rounded ownership experience with the features, but also justifies the higher asking price over the lower variants. The only features you might miss in the XT are projector headlamps, height-adjustable driver seat, front and rear armrests and rear AC vents.

Unfortunately, if you buy this variant with the turbo petrol engine, then you will get smaller 14-inch wheels without wheel covers. So, for Altroz turbo buyers, we’ll not recommend the XT variant.

Also, you’ll get a far superior value-for-money option in the Altroz lineup. This is the most affordable variant we can safely recommend to Altroz turbo petrol buyers. Even for Altroz automatic and 1.2L normal petrol-manual buyers, the XZ is our top recommendation.

You can also buy the XZ Plus Dark variant for additional Rs. 30,000. It’ll offer black alloys, black interiors, black exterior colour and black upholstery. The asking price is reasonable and worth a look if you want that black theme.

Which Variant Of The 2022 Tata Altroz Petrol Should You Buy?

Let’s start with the 1.2L normal petrol-manual variants. With the diesel engine, you should skip the XE and XE Plus variants as they don’t have several must-have features. Even if you don’t want to stretch your budget, you should at least buy the XM Plus variant and compromise a little bit on the value for a significantly better ownership experience.

On a side note, if you buy the XT non-turbo, then you’re getting a far better value. But we’ll suggest you stretch a bit for the XZ turbo. The additional features alone justify this upgrade. On top of that, you’ll get the more powerful and torquier turbo petrol engine.

You should skip the XT Dark and go straight to the XZ variant, which is not only a phenomenal value for money but also our top recommendation. From there, you can decide based on your budget if you want to upgrade to the XZ Plus and XZ Plus Dark. They both offer good value for money but only offer feel-good features.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Tata Altroz Petrol?

The 1.2L normal petrol engine in the Altroz is the only other normal petrol engine among the B2 segment hatchbacks with 3 cylinders besides the Polo 1.0L. All other cars, which offer a normal petrol engine have a 4-cylinder setup. Its power and torque output are on par with the rivals. It’s the only car, not only in its segment but across all price points to offer a dual-clutch automatic with a normal petrol engine.

The mileage figures of the Altroz automatic are not available at the moment but we expect it to offer similar mileage as the Altroz 1.2L normal petrol-manual. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Baleno and Glanza twins offer the best-in-class figures of 22.35kmpl and 22.94kmpl with petrol-manual and petrol-automatic respectively.

Besides the Altroz, i20 and Polo are the only other B2-segment hatchbacks with a turbo petrol engine. The Altroz 1.2L turbo’s power output is acceptable for this class, but the torque output is a fair bit lower than its rivals. The Polo and i20 turbo, both offer 170Nm+ torque from their smaller, 1.0L  engines. The Altroz turbo is also the only one in this comparison not available with an automatic transmission. The i20 turbo offers a dual-clutch while the Polo offers torque converter automatic.

What Are The Dimensions Of The 2022 Tata Altroz?

The Tata Altroz is about as big as the other B2-segment hatchbacks but doesn’t stand out in any way. The i20 is the largest one with best-in-class width and wheelbase for a phenomenal road presence.

The only notable aspect of the Altroz is its 14-inch wheel size for lower variants with a small 165-section tyre. The Polo is the only other car with a 14-inch wheel size in this comparison and even that offers a wider tyre size than the bargain basement 165-section. We wish it had at least 175-section tyres with 15-inch wheels even in the base variant.
