Despite the rising popularity of SUVs in recent times, the premium segment of hatchbacks is attracting a large segment of consumers in the Indian automotive market. This space of hatchback is expected to offer premium features apart from sporty performance, though the competition is getting tougher with each passing stage.
Tata Motors has updated the 2021 lineup for its premium hatchback Altroz. The major update to the lineup is the inclusion of a turbocharged petrol engine that offers a more exhilarating driving experience. Apart from this, Tata has also recently added a Dark Edition to the Altroz lineup.
