Tata Motors has expanded the Altroz lineup by introducing two new variants to its premium hatchback. The new offerings include the XM and XM(S) variants, with prices starting at Rs 6.90 lakh and Rs 7.35 lakh respectively (ex-showroom). These new variants come packed with a range of features that were previously exclusive to higher-end models.
Both the Tata Altroz XM variants now come with a height-adjustable driver’s seat, electrically adjustable and autofold ORVMs, R16 wheels with full wheel cover, and steering-mounted controls. The XM(S) variant, in addition to these features, also offers the highly sought-after electric sunroof. For added convenience, customers can opt for the 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system as an optional accessory.
These new variants will occupy a position between the Altroz XE and the XM+, effectively bridging the gap between the existing variants.
Only available with petrol-manual
The new variants will be available only with the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine option will not be available with the new variants. Also, only the five-speed manual transmission will be the only choice that the customers will be able to choose with the new variants.
Other variants powered by the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated Revotron engine will also get a host of new features.
The XE variant will now be equipped with rear power windows and remote keyless entry, along with follow me home lamps. The XM+ and XM+S variants will come with additional features, including a reverse camera, driver seat height adjuster, cruise control, and a top-end dashboard look. As for the XT variant, it will boast driver seat height adjuster, R16 Hyperstyle wheels, and a rear defogger.
New features added to 2023 Altroz
Tata Motors recently introduced several new features to the Altroz lineup. The three new additions to the Tata Altroz include an air purifier, wireless charger, and a single-pane electric sunroof. In a recent advertisement, they showcased these features.
The air purifier comes with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that displays the air quality index (AQI). Moving on, the wireless charger pad, conveniently located in the lower center console, is demonstrated in the advertisement. And lastly, the updated Tata Altroz features a single-pane electric sunroof, which can be operated using voice commands.
With this addition, the Altroz becomes the second hatchback in its segment to offer a sunroof, with the Hyundai i20 already having this feature in its higher-spec variants. While the Honda Jazz used to offer a sunroof in the past, it was discontinued before the BS6 phase-II emission norms came into effect.
