Take a look at this base-spec Tata Altroz XE that seems to be inspired by Harrier's Dark Edition. However, it does not feature any serious modification.
Tata Motors launched the Altroz in India early this car. The car picked up quite a pace on the sales chart and is now doing exceptionally well. The Altroz gained a lot of popularity around the Indian buyers for its design. Based on the Tata’s Impact 2.0 design philosophy, the Altroz is a looker from every angle. Also, Tata Motors has ensured that there isn’t much of a difference between the various trims levels in terms of appearance from the outside. Here’s one which nicely mimics the Dark Edition theme that debuted on the Harrier. Interestingly, this is the base-spec XE variant that costs Rs. 5.29 lakh, and it does not feature any major customization either.
The car in the pictures dons the Midtown Grey paint scheme, which is one of the five colour schemes that Tata Altroz is offered in. It gets a set of aftermarket alloy wheels, which are also finished in a shade of black. These wheels are the only modification that has been done to this Altroz. However, they do look puny and seems like 14-inches in diameter. It is the same size that Tata Motors offers in the low-end variant of the Altroz.
Tata has used the piano-black finish in abundance on the Altroz. It effortlessly lends it with the ‘Dark Edtion’ look in combination with this Midtown Grey paint scheme. The carmaker has used the piano-black finish on the radiator grille and ORVMs. Also, there’s a piano-black applique on the headlamps and the window lines. A major part of the tailgate is also finished in this same theme. The roof of the car can also be had painted in black from the factory in case someone is not happy with all the piano-black elements that Altroz comes with.
Tata Motors is offering the Altroz with two engine options – 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The petrol motor here is borrowed from the smaller Tiago, but it gets an extra balancer shaft in the Altroz to offer reduced NVH levels. It puts out 86 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of peak torque. The oil burner, on the other hand, is a bigger 1.5L unit. It whips out 90 PS of peak power and a healthy 200 Nm of peak torque.
