One of the Tata hatchback segment's premium models, the Altroz. On 22nd January 2020, Tata launched the subcompact hatchback. The concept was teased at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show alongside the Buzzard, Buzzard Sport, and H2X compact SUV concepts. The name "Altroz," as you can guess, is derived from the sea bird Albatross. Tata had sold 47000+ units in the previous year 2020.
The Altro got five out of five ratings from Global NCAP ( New Car Assessment Program). This proves how safe it is. Also, in terms of child occupant protection, it has got three stars. Currently, three engine variants are offered: a 1.2liter-cylinder NA petrol, 1.5-liter diesel, and a 1.2-liter triple-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.

There is a separate seven inches screen with an analogue dial for the instrument cluster. The glove box provided is 15 litres. The "Cruise" control is one of the most important features of the car.

The Cosmo Dark coloured body with granite black interior theme looks stunning. If you are obsessed with the black colour, then this version will surely entice you, especially the dark chrome on the hood. The seats are large enough and are way more comfortable.
