Tata Altroz comes with 16-inch dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels from the factory. If you think, they are small and plain for your liking, check out this Altroz, which sits on a set of flashy 17-inch units
With the Altroz, Tata Motors once again proved their design excellence. Based on the Impact 2.0 design language, the Tata Altroz looks striking from all angles. Also, on the outside, all the variants of Tata Altroz look the same with just the wheels being a major difference. The base-spec models come with 14-inch steel wheels, while the mid-spec comes with 16-inch steel wheels. However, the top-spec variants are shod with 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. However, the aftermarket options are always there if you're not happy with the factory-spec units. There is already a huge variety of options you can choose from. For example, here’s a mid-spec XT variant of the Altroz that has been fitted with a nice set of 17-inch alloy wheels.
These 5-spoke units with concave effect give the Altroz a better stance than the stock units. Also, they are a size larger than the OEM alloy wheels and are a perfect match to Altroz’s sharp lines. This wheel job has been performed by Monga Tyres, located in Ludhiana, Punjab. These wheels are sourced from Plati Wheels. It is an Indian brand, known for offering affordable and stylish wheel options. Talking of the tyres, these rims are shod with 215 section rubber with an aspect ratio of 45. We bet this combination would’ve surely improved the dynamics of the car, but at the cost of ride comfort.
Tata Altroz comes with 2 engine options – 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The 1.2L petrol is the same Revotron motor as the seen on the Tiago and Tigor, but it gets a secondary balancer shaft here for lower NVH. It produces 86 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of max torque. The bigger 1.5L diesel, on the other hand, puts out a rated output of 90 PS/200 Nm.
Both the engines on Altroz come mated to a 5-speed MT. Tata Motors is not offering an automatic gearbox as of now. However, the manufacturer has confirmed that Altroz will get it soon. Also, it would be something more premium than an AMT. We expect the car to come with a 6-speed torque converter unit as the Harrier.
