On the occasion of Altroz turning 2, Tata motors have updated the premium hatchback’s lineup to keep it fresh. The dark edition range of the Altroz now gets the XT variant which is ₹46000 more than the standard variant. Tata has also introduced an XZ+ dark edition variant with the 1.5-liter diesel engine that is priced at ₹10 lakh. The XZ+ dark edition trim sees new features as well for all the engine options such as tire pressure monitoring system and brake sway control.
Mr. Rajan Amba, Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Care, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. said, “The ALTROZ has created its own mark in the premium hatchback market with more than 1.2 lakh happy owners. With over 20% market share (YTD) in its segment, it has been very popular amongst customers. The addition of the #DARK to its portfolio last year further enhanced its style quotient. The ALTROZ offers true international standards of safety, design, and performance and has played an important role in enhancing our New Forever range. We would like to celebrate the brand’s 2nd anniversary with our customers with these product extensions, making it more accessible and offering exciting feature updates. With increasing recognition from Indian consumers and earning incremental market share year on year, we are confident that Altroz is poised for more success in the future.”
