Tata Altroz Positives over Tiago

Engine: Although both Cars comes with same 1.2 Litre BS6 Compliant Revotron Petrol Engine but the key difference is that Tata Altroz available with Balancer Shaft. This helps in reducing Engine NVH Levels on Idling and higher speed in Altroz vis a vis Tiago.

To be disclaimed - even Altroz has slight Vibration felt on Steering Wheel, Gear Level and when revv hard Engine felt noisier but overall NVH Levels of this 3 Cylinder Engine still felt marginally lower in Altroz against Tata Tiago BS6


Space: Due to Longer Wheelbase, Rear Seat Legroom feel relative better in Altroz against Tata Tiago. Cabin Width is Wider and 3 People can actually sit in Altroz against Tiago. Also Bigger Boot Space. 

However due to sloping roof and Rear Window line, somehow taller Passenger of 6"and above can find Altroz relative limited in headroom space.


Bigger Car, Social Status: 'Length' Matters and Tata Altroz looks yes a bigger car as against Tiago in Side by Side Looks. Also Altroz is a one step ahead of Tiago, so Social Status Perspective, Branding of Altroz is superior. In Looks too - Front Fascia Altroz, Side Profile, Rear Looks are more impressive in Tata Altroz as against updated Tiago BS6

Suspension, Handling: Although Tiago Suspension is good, but Altroz Suspension and Handling Dynamics are class apart and even feel better against Hyundai Elite I20, Honda Jazz, so care for superior Handling Dynamics Tata Altroz leads ahead

On other hand Tata Altroz scored 5 Star and marked Stable even at 64 Kmph Speed. So care for Superior Safety - Altroz scores ahead against Tiago


Interior Aesthetics: Yes due to more Space and Better Dash Layout, Steering Wheel Design and Instrument Cluster theme Altroz yes has superior Interior Aesthetics against Tiago. Also has Rear AC Vents and Adjustable Head Restraints on Rear Seat for Differentiation
