It’s finally a movement of alleviation for all Tata Altroz aspiring buyers, who have been kept away with the ease of automatic transmission. Since its launch in 2020, the Altroz was only offered with a manual gearbox option, which is set to change today as the brand launched the advanced 6-speed DCT automatic gearbox. The automatic gearbox will come mated with the 1.2L Revotron naturally-aspirated petrol engine that churns out 86hp of power and 113Nm of torque.
Tata Motors claims that Altroz DCA (dual-clutch automatic gearbox) is specially designed for Indian consumers,the world’s first DCT with a planetary gear system. The DCA version of India’s premium and safest hatchback is equipped with several segment-first features. These include a Wet clutch with active cooling technology, Machine learning, Shift by wire technology, Self-healing mechanism, and Auto park lock. The Altroz DCA gets a host of comfort features such as premium leatherette seats, auto headlamps, 7-inch touchscreen by Harman, 7-inch TFT digital cluster, rear AC vents, and iRA connected car technology.
“The Altroz DCA with its segment-first features will certainly captivate the minds of prospective buyers and provide a seamless driving experience. With more than 1.25
lakh happy customers, the Tata Altroz has witnessed an overwhelming response from customers and has set certain benchmarks in the segment. The addition of the Altroz DCA will bolster our product portfolio, help us in expanding our market share and take our success story further to set a ‘Gold Standard’ in automatics.” Says Mr Rajan Amba, Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Care, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd.
