Tata Altroz, the premium hatchback from the homegrown automaker was first revealed in late-2019 and was launched a few months down the line. To make its mid-range XT variant tad more exciting, the company has introduced a minor equipment update in the form of automatic climate control. The update has been introduced likely based on the customer feedback.
For the record, previously the Tata Altroz XT only featured a manual AC, while the automatic climate control was only reserved for the higher XZ and XZ(O) trims.

Apart from the newly added automatic climate control, the Altroz XT trim comes kitted with features such as a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment screen which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a semi-digital instrument console with a 7.0-inch colour screen, keyless entry, cruise control, LED daytime running lights, rear-view camera, electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors and 16-inch alloy wheels.
The Tata Altroz sources its locomotive power from a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine. While the former churns out 86 PS of maximum power, the latter delivers 90 PS. The transmission option includes a 5-speed manual gearbox.
