A Tata Altroz owner gives his genuine ownership experience review in this video on YouTube. Altroz is slowly becoming the most popular premium hatchback in the country after Maruti Baleno. It has started to outsell the mighty Hyundai i20 in terms of monthly sales on a consistent basis. The reasons for that include multiple powertrain options, modern comfort and tech features and most importantly, safety. It is the only 5-star Global NCAP safety-rated car in the segment. Owing to its popularity, Tata is also planning an EV version of the car. Reportedly, it will offer an even higher range than Tesla. For now, let us take a look at this detailed ownership review of the Altroz.
Altroz Ownership Experience Review
The owner tells that before buying the Altroz, he had considered the Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20 as well. The reason for now going for the Baleno was the safety aspect. The owner travels with his family a lot and prioritizes safety over performance. In that aspect, Altroz is undoubtedly a far better choice. Coming to the i20, he liked the features and engine options on offer but the low mileage and higher price (compared to the Altroz) concerned him. Hence, he didn’t go for the i20 either. That is how he ended up with the Altroz, which has a wider cabin space compared to the i20 according to him. He was able to squeeze out great mileage figures from the Altroz after initial low numbers. This happened after the ECU update, which he recommends to every Altroz owner. The update has an impact on performance and fuel economy.
Tata Service Continues To Be Poor
Now, this statement might not represent the image of the entire Tata Motors but is still an overwhelming commotion across Tata products’ owners. We have seen countless ownership experiences where they are not satisfied with the service centre experience of Tata Motors. This Altroz owner faced the same thing too. The mechanic/technician at the workshop was highly unprofessional and didn’t seem to have any empathy towards the car. However, upper-level staff was a bit more considerate and took the pain to listen to the problems of the owner and devise a solution. Having changed the service centre, also changed the perception of the Altroz owner. This next service centre offered a far better overall experience and now he is satisfied with it. He acknowledges the fact that some dealerships and service centre owners are damaging the image of Tata Group which is unfortunate.
