The Tata Altroz is one of the most gorgeous looking hatchbacks that you can buy today. We could only imagine how nicer the design would look in black colour since Tata never offered an option of it. Well, that is not a dream anymore since the Altroz now gets the dark treatment making it even more desirable. The Altroz Dark edition starts at ₹8.71 lakhs and it is solely available in the top-end XZ+ trim.
Dark edition treatment
The Altroz dark edition will feature a new black paint called the Cosmo Black. It gets premium dark chrome across the hood and dark tint finish on 16 inch alloy wheels. The interior gets Granite black theme with metallic gloss black mid pad and leatherette upholstery. The interior also features deep blue tri-arrow perforations and deco blue stitching.
The Altroz dark edition gets #Dark emblem on the front fenders and the headrests in case you forget that it is a special edition. Tata has also introduced a puncture kit with the Altroz Dark edition for additional safety. The Altroz dark edition only be had with the naturally aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines which might be a bummer for the diesel Altroz customers.
