Here are few images of Tata Altroz, which employs aftermarket blacked-out alloy wheels.
Tata Altroz is among the top-selling cars in the premium hatchback segment. It is also the only car in its segment to score a 5-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test. It competes with the likes of Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20. It was launched in our market early this year, so there are not a lot of customized examples of the premium hatchback, which can be seen on the roads or the internet. But, recently we got our hands on a few images, where a Tata Altroz can be seen fitted with a lot of aftermarket equipment.
The regular model of the car gets 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The Tata hatchback you see here employs aftermarket multi-spoke blacked-out alloy wheels. Earlier, these 17-inch mags were painted in silver colour shade. These sporty multi-spoke rims are shod with Michelin tyres. This Tata Altroz has been tastefully modified by its owner. The front disc brake callipers of the car are painted in yellow colour shade. Furthermore, the stock exhaust of the car has been replaced with a Remus Valvetronic exhaust, which can increase or decrease the exhaust sound via the press of a button. Upfront, the modifier has employed an aftermarket splitter on the front bumper along with side skirts. The front fascia looks more aggressive as the headlamp now feature a smoked tint.
Mechanically, Tata Altroz remains the same. It derives power from 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The former develops 86 PS of power and 113 Nm of peak torque, while the latter puts out power and torque outputs of 110 PS and 140 Nm. The engine comes coupled to a 5-speed MT. As per reports, the carmaker is currently working on the DCT gearbox for the premium hatchback, which is likely to come paired with the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The new turbo petrol trim of the hatchback is likely to hit the Indian shores by next year. The ongoing model of the car is offered at a starting price of Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
