Here's a video where a Tata Altroz owner is explaining the reasons for buying it over rivals like Elite i20, Baleno and Nexon
In the premium hatchback space, Tata Altroz is one of the best-looking cars. Hence, the indigenous carmaker is selling it in great numbers. However, there are a lot of offerings in this fast-growing segment. But, why people are settling down for the Tata Altroz is what you are wondering about? Then here’s a YouTube video from the channel of Tarun Shandilya, who happens to be an Altroz owner. And, can be seen explaining the reasons, which made him buy the Altroz over its competitors - Tata Nexon, Maruti Baleno, Ford Freestyle, Honda Amaze, and Hyundai Elite i20.
The host chalked off the Honda Amaze, Ford Freestyle, and Tata Nexon for their high fuel consumption, as he was planning to buy a petrol car. Moving over to the Maruti Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20, the reasons for not opting these cars were their low crash-test ratings. Moreover, the i20’s low fuel efficiency was another concern. At last, the host was left out with Maruti Baleno as the only option left in his list. However, he then got to know of Tata 45X Concept and thought of waiting for its production-spec model – Altroz.
According to him, the first look of the Altroz was not all that appealing to him, but now he thinks that Altroz is the best-looking car in its segment. However, the 5-star crash test rating and abundance of safety features lured him to buy an Altroz in place of a Maruti Baleno. Another aspect that the host was worried about is the mileage. Well, he saw a few videos on YouTube and concluded that Altroz is frugal as well. With all of this on Altroz’s side, he bought one home.
Talking of the Altroz’s powertrain, it comes with two engine options – 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The petrol motor here is 3-pot setup and pushes out a peak power output of 86 PS and max torque of 113 Nm. The oil burner, on the other hand, develops a rated power and torque output of 90 PS and 200 Nm, respectively. The engines come mated to a 5-speed MT only. Sadly, Tata Motors fails to offer an option of an automatic gearbox with the Altroz.
