The daylight headlamps and the diamond-cut alloys make the car more premium.

Tata Altroz Performance
Talk about the performance of diesel engine, There is considerably turbo lag in diesel version but it nicely works on the high speed or when the rpm of the car is high, Mostly the turbo lags between 1800- 2000 rpm but after then it pickups nicely. The most important thing is that the engine is silent and not producing any annoying sound.
If we talk about the Petrol engine then the engine is energetic but lacking in power. Similarly, perform well at the high speed and no annoying sound is produced by the engine.
The expected pricing of petrol version starts from 5.10 lakh and 6.20 lakh for the diesel version. The expected price for top variant of petrol XZ is 7.35 lakh, For Diesel XZ expected pricing is 8 lakh.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz are the main rivals of the Tata Altroz.
