Tata Altroz XM+ variant has been launched to take on the new Hyundai i20. We have a video here detailing the features of the new trim level
Tata Altroz was launched in January of this year, though due to the pandemic it hasn’t been seen much on the public road. Only now after the lockdown has been lifted that the Altroz is garnering interest from buyers and Tata recently launched an XM+ variant to compete with the all-new Hyundai i20. With the i20 base model starting from Rs 6.80 lakh, the Altroz XM+ has been launched Rs 20,000 cheaper at Rs 6.60 lakh and is only Rs 30,000 dearer than the XM variant, a very good deal when you consider the number of features you get in this trim.
In this video that has been uploaded by that has been uploaded by 48 Automobile on their YouTube channel, in which we see an overview of the Tata Altroz XM+. It gets a bunch of new features at a reasonable price point. The new car comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also, steering-mounted controls, voice command recognition, and voice alerts, rear parking sensors, a remote foldable key are parts of the package that helps enhance the car’s value-for-money quotient. Do keep in mind that these features are not available in the XM trim. Apart from that, all other features offered on the XM are carried forward to the new XM+ variant, including ambient lighting, electrically-adjustable and folding ORVMs, power windows, drive modes (Eco and City) among others.
But you do miss out on quite a few features on the Tata Altroz XM+ like only halogen lamps instead of projectors, no factory fitted fog lamps, and no rear wiper on the exterior. Weirdly you only get a 14-inch spare tyre instead of the 16-inch steel wheels the car rides on. Over to the interior, you miss out on features like a front armrest and the rear seats don’t get either a central armrest or adjustable headrests. You also only get analogue dials with a MID instead of a semi-digital cluster.
The XM+ plus variant of the Tata Altroz is currently being offered with the petrol engine only which is a 1.2-litre 3-pot petrol engine that makes peak power and torque figures of 85 PS /113 Nm respectively and is mated to a 5-speed manual.
