TATA ALTROZ DIESEL PRICES REDUCED BY RS. 40,000 IN INDIA | CARS NEWS | AUTO REPORTER
All diesel variants of the Tata Altroz besides the base trim have seen a price drop in India. Tata Motors has decreased the prices of its Altroz premium hatchback in the national market. Competing versus Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz, and Volkswagen Polo, the Altroz has been well accepted in India since its market appearance this year. To additional lure in customers, Tata has cut down the prices of the diesel-powered Altroz. The entry-level XE variant of the Altroz diesel remains to be sold with the price tag of Rs. 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the XM, XT, XZ, and XZ (O) trims have seen Rs' price drop. Forty thousand each making the five-seater more engaging to customers during the festive season. The XM variant comes with a price of Rs. 7.50 lakh as opposed to Rs. 7.90 lakh previously.
The XT now costs Rs. 8.19 lakh, XZ at Rs. 8.79 lakh and XZ (O) at Rs. 8.95 lakh. It must be noted that the whole Altroz range saw a price hike of up to Rs. Sixteen thousand in August 2020, excluding the base XE diesel. The Altro derives power from either 1.2-liter Revotron petrol or a 1.5-liter Revotorq Diesel engine with a five-speed manual transmission. The 1.2-liter three-cylinder gasoline unit can also be found in the Tiago and is sufficient to produce a maximum power output of 85 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of peak torque delivered at 3,300 RPM. The four-cylinder turbocharged oil-burner pumps out 89 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of peak torque between 1,250 and 3,000 RPM. It is one of the very few diesel hatchbacks currently available on sale domestically.

The Altro is also the most affordable passenger vehicle in India to gain five stars from the Global NCAP crash test organization. It is the first model underpinned by the ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) design, and it will give way for more compact vehicles like the HBX based micro SUV in early 2021.
Furthermore, an all-electric version of the Altroz is also expected to arrive next year. The homegrown company appears to be working on a more powerful turbocharged petrol version of the Altroz, and it could be introduced with a DCT in the upcoming months.
