2022 Tata Altroz DCA, with automatic transmission, launched at ₹8.10 lakh
Tata Motors has launched the 2022 Altroz with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, a first for the model, at a starting price of ₹8.10 lakh (ex-showroom). The automatic variant of the 2022 Tata Altroz will be available across six trims, which include the XMA+, XTA, XZA and XZA(O) variants as well as two variants in the Dark Edition including XTA Dark and XZA+ Dark. All these trims have the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated Revotron petrol engine. The price of the Tata Altroz AT goes up to ₹9.90 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec XZ+ trim. Tata Motors had earlier started accepting bookings for the Altroz automatic variants at a token amount of ₹21,000.
2022 Tata Altroz DCA will take on rival such as Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and the Volkswagen Polo in the premium hatchback segment. Baleno and Glanza are the only two models which have recently received a facelift.

Until now, Tata Altroz was only available with a five-speed manual transmission mated to either the 1.2-litre petrol, the 1.2-litre turbo petrol or the 1.5-litre diesel engines. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol unit mated to the dual-clutch automatic transmission, which comes with shift by wire technology and wet clutch active cooling technology, is capable of generating maximum output of 86 hp and 111 Nm peak torque, similar to what the engine generates with the manual transmission.

As far as the changes are concerned, the new Altroz DCA comes with certain cosmetic updates. The most prominent is a new exterior colour theme called Opera Blue. This colour scheme will be available along with the other five regular colour options including Harbour Blue, Avenue White, Cosmos Black, Downtown Red, and Arcade Grey.
Besides the new exterior colour schemes, the 2022 Altroz automatic variants will also get the DCA badging. The cabin of the new Altroz gets a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the usual connected car features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Tata's own IRA-connected car features. Other features like the Harman sound system, rain sensing wipers, premium leatherette seats, rear ac vents, automatic headlamps, semi-digital driver display, push start/stop button and 16-inch alloy wheels will continue to be available in the automatic variants of the premium hatchback as well.
As far as safety is concerned, Tata will offer Auto Park Lock as a segment-first feature to improve mileage. Besides this, Tata will continue with the same features available in the manual trims of the Altroz. The premium hatchback is one of the safest cars in India with a five-star rating at the Global NCAP crash tests.
