Take a look at the video below to see how Tata Altroz fared in two different accidents.
The Tata Altroz was launched in January this year, but it has somewhat lost its moment in the spotlight as the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a nation-wide lockdown. After the lockdown was relaxed, Hyundai launched their all-new i20 during Diwali which overshadowed the Altroz again. But kudos to the Altroz as it has still managed to post some strong sales figures and offers a great design, feature-loaded trim levels, and value-for-money pricing. Additionally, the Altroz also boasts a full 5-star adult safety rating from Global NCAP, making it one of the safest cars you can buy in India. Here's a YouTube video from the channel of Prateek Singh that depicts the same.
In the video, we see two separate accidents of the Tata Altroz. In the first one, we see the aftermath of a high-speed head-on collision between the Altroz and a truck. We can see that the front end is completely crumpled, which dispersed the energy and upon impact the front airbags were immediately deployed, saving the occupants.
In the second part of the video, we see a Tata Altroz which ended up hitting a divider, rolled over, and also skid along the road for some distance. Most of the impact was soaked by the left side of the car. Fortunately, all the passengers walked out if it without any injuries. However, a passerby who helped the occupants revealed that including the driver, everyone was drunk, and the accident may have happened due to an error in driving as there wasn’t anything else to have caused the accident. Drinking and driving can be hazardous and fatal, and this video shows why you shouldn’t try that.
Prices for the Tata Altroz start from Rs. 5.44 lakh for the base trim and goes up to Rs 9.04 lakh for the top model. You have the choice of either a petrol or diesel, with the 1.2-litre three-pot petrol making peak power and torque figures of 85 PS/113 Nm while the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel churns out 90 PS/200 Nm of max power and torque. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox only.
