1 year with my Tata Altroz Turbo: Performance, fuel efficiency & more

There’s sufficient space in the cabin for all the passengers and the air conditioning is superb.

BHPian SavoyWalrus not long ago shared this with other enthusiasts.

The iTurbo has completed a year and particularly 10,000 kilometres given that I acquired it in December 2021. The car has served me effectively and I have not encountered any problems therefore significantly.

It has mostly been utilised on the freeway (I perform from household, so no commutes for me) and has been amazing for extended-distance drives (very a number of 8-10+ hour journeys). The suspension operates effectively at higher speeds, the seats are fairly comfortable, enough space for all travellers, fantastic AC, a good deal of cubby holes, huge door pockets, and a spacious glove box (can quickly keep a few 1-litre bottles and the cooling is outstanding), and decent ability to continue to keep it in triple-digit speeds.

The motor, as described by most entrepreneurs and reviewers, is sort of a weak point it could’ve been a outstanding deal with a very little much more torque. There’s enough energy to chug along on the freeway, but you can expect to have to improve gears rather a little bit on the hills. There’s also the really annoying momentary hesitation down small in the rev array.

Gasoline economy has been really consistent — 13-14 in the town and 15-16 on the highway. I run the car or truck with AC just about all the time so I’m happy with these figures.

I have not performed any modifications to the car (this is the top-spec XZ+) apart from underbody rust safety, Michelin Primacy 4 tyres, and swapped the stock wheels for Momo Revenge wheels.

There was a minimal bit of rattling from the roof liner at triple-digit speeds which was rectified in the course of services. The gearbox was a tiny clunky in the initially few months of possession, but that was typically sorted out in the course of a single of the providers and I’ve sort of gotten made use of to functioning all-around the clunkiness.

I have a few mods prepared for the motor vehicle which I’ll probably do in the subsequent year or so.

  • Seem deadening to lower the motor sounds in the cabin.
  • Dechrome some bits up front
  • Get sportier pedals these make an troublesome squeaky noise at instances
  • Remap (soon after the warranty expires)
  • A sportier conclusion can (like the ones in the JTP)

I am in two minds about acquiring lowering springs — Bangalore streets are awful and the Altroz is previously reduced than most hatchbacks, but it would give it a nice stance and improve dealing with a very little.

Will in all probability get a downpipe later on down the highway.

Satisfied with the car so far and hope to put on extra kilometres in the upcoming number of months!
