Tata has launched the Altroz DCA, and it comes with a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine paired to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. As far as the performance goes, the Altroz DCA produces the same 85 bhp and 11.52 kgm of torque.
The 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine and 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine still gets the 5-speed manual gearbox. Tata says that the DCT gearbox comes with shift-by-wire tech. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is only available on the 1.2-litre NA petrol engine. Also, if the driver exits the car without shifting to Park mode, the Auto Park Lock feature activates, completely minimising the risk of unintended movement.
On the features front, the top-spec Altroz comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 7.0-inch semi-digital instrument cluster, connected car tech, automatic climate control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leatherette upholstery and keyless entry with push-button-start-stop.
Starting at Rs 8.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Altroz DCA is available in four variants — XM+, XT, XZ and XZ+. Also, the Altroz is now available in the new Opera Blue colour, and you can have the Altroz DCA in the Dark edition as well! Do let us know which one would you choose — the Hyundai i20 DCT or the Tata Altroz DCA?
